Dir: Marcus Vetter
Germany / 2014 / 100mins
Not of the weather – but a renegade economist who successfully forecasted major downturns in the world financial markets.
This is the extraordinary story of Martin Armstrong and the computer system he created that predicted world economic turning points with incredible accuracy; years in advance. His predictions included Black Monday in 1987, the fall of the Russian Ruble in 1998 and the global economic crisis in 2008, gaining him worldwide attention. Before long, Armstrong and his company, Princeton Economics had built up a clientele that consisted of powerful players in the global economy. But in 1999 the FBI suddenly stormed his offices confiscating his computer and accusing him of a $3 billion Ponzi scheme.
In this fascinating documentary Martin Armstrong reveals the truth about what happened. Through the use of archive footage, interviews with former employees, his customers and his family, The Forecaster tells Armstrong’s remarkable story for the first time. Playing out like a Hollywood screenplay, you won’t want to miss his latest prediction.
