Armstrong Economics Blog/Basic Concepts
Re-Posted Sep 6, 2017 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I have followed you for many years. I have to say, I am truly amazed at what your computer projects. You have never missed a move yet. Here we have the rally in gold into September, yet the August high stands in the market, and even Korea went nuts on your target date and your next target for the 11th concerning Korea I do not want to think what is going on.
I understand you say you never pursued this research based upon a preconclusion but bumped into this in the middle of the night. My question is this. Do you think what you have discovered is somehow a mysterious force that just compels things to happen on target? It’s hard for me to put into words. Do you have any idea why all these things happen when you forecast they will happen?
Definitely see you in Orlando.
ANSWER: I get this question a lot. I really do not know what is the answer. We clearly respond to events the same today as humans did in Roman times. Politicians never change and are always greedy and will exploit the people. If this was not true, then we should all be speaking Babylonian.
I can see that is you do X then Y will always follow. But this is some strange complexity that is far beyond what people are willing to expect. The government simply said I manipulated the world economy. Now that’s really nuts. All I have done is comprehend the inter-connectivity and mapped it out with TIME.
There is a very interesting regularity to everything and it is truly predictable. Yet the majority still prefer to blame me (messenger) rather than stop and explore that there is a mysterious order of complexity far beyond comprehension. The consequence of that (Invisible Hand) runs contrary to politicians who try to manipulate society in the spirit of Karl Marx. So if I am right, that means a politicians can not keep their promises for they cannot control the world economy.
