Presented by Second Chance Cinema. The Forecaster tells the story of Martin Armstrong, once a US based trillion dollar financial advisor, who developed a computer model based on the number pi and other cyclical theories to predict economic turning points with eerie accuracy.
In the early 80s he established his financial forecasting and advising company Princeton Economics. His forecasts were in great demand worldwide. As Armstrong’s recognition grew, prominent New York bankers invited him to join
“the club” to aid them in market manipulation. Martin repeatedly refused. Later that same year (1999) the FBI stormed his offices confiscating his computer model and accusing him of a 3 billion dollar Ponzi scheme. Was it an
attempt to silence him and to prevent him from initiating a public discourse on the real Ponzi Scheme of debts that the world has been building up for decades?
