COMMENT: Marty, you make so many forecasts on so many aspects of the world economy in politics, I am not sure you even keep track. You wrote back on March 9, 2017: “It appears that we are headed back to the mid-19th century when brawls broke out on the floor of Congress … We are looking at the risk of a complete breakdown in the country come as early as March 10th, 2020.” Trump refused to attend the St Patrick Day event in Washington because of the hostility with the Democrats. How could you pick even the week more than 3 years in advance?
QUESTION: Martin, thank you for enlightening us. I have been following your blog for many years. I save posts referring to future important events, like the one you mentioned in the following one: “…..We are looking at the risk of a complete breakdown in the country come as early as March 10th, 2020.”
Was this forecast based on a specific cycle?
ANSWER: Yes. It is an internal cycle; we run on government and the hostility between the two parties. It was due to turn up on March 10th, 2020. It is very curious that we get so much surrounding this event including the market crash. We did not factor in St Patrick’s Day. Trump declined to attend because of Pelosi, which is precisely what this cycle forecasts. Very curious.
