The excitement is clearly building and the questions keep coming in. Here is a clip of Socrates on the portfolio monitoring – just a tiny snippet. This accomplishment was 30 years in the making as the required experience to cope with the boom and bust cycle within the global political-economy. Socrates is simply far beyond the standard normal analytic tools that are out there for he has evolved on many disciplines concerning both TIME as well as PRICE.
The good news is this system is so advanced and actually thinks in a cognitive manner exploring the world at large it cannot be duplicated. Socrates has learned over more than a quarter-century building a knowledge base of experience just as a human being learns walking through life. The experience incorporated into this system cannot be obtained in just a few years. This model has been legendary to say the least and it will demonstrate we stand at the threshold of a completely new era in global economics and forecasting.
With the banking crisis looming in Europe, the IMF behind the drive to seize wealth on a global scale, big money of individuals continues to try to get “off the grid” as they say. Real Estate over $10 million is still booming as reported by AP.
We have real estate also mapped into the database that Socrates has correlated with overall trends. As I have stated numerous times, I began with NO theory, just an honest quest to discover what made the world economy tick. By gathering everything we would put into a time series, the understanding emerged that everything is connected.
By gathering everything possible and putting it into the database, what Socrates resolved has been fascinating to say the least.
The same trend is impacting art and collectibles. Rare coins are becoming rarer as those who have them just hold and the supply continues to shrink. Every field is pretty much the same story. Nobody wants to sell for then what do you do with the cash?
Many emails have come in asking if we can assist in obtaining high-end ancient coins since they are an international item and movable without tariffs. I realize this may be in many respects safer than just metals and diamonds for transport. But I am not sure there is enough of a supply even available of coins $10,000+. Most seem to go to auction where they know they can get big bucks. Here is a Naxos tetradrachm, probably the finest known that would probably bring $1 million+ today. If there are any hoards that appear, I typically get a phone call. We will keep everyone in mind since so many are looking to get “off the grid” these days and ancient coins are not likely to be confiscated as was the case with gold..

COMMENT: Martin, In many ways I’ve long viewed your work as the reverse side of Shrodinger’s cat — more able to predict the time upon which events that will turn out to have been of significance will occur than what those events will be. One thought I’ve pondered reading through your material over the last few years is whether there is any point in intentionally aligning significant changes with the specific turning points within the model; trying to ‘catch the wave’ if you will.
REPLY: When you consider that the Economic Confidence Model is a transverse wave of a fixed time length and these dates were generated more than 30 years ago based upon economic data, it is truly fascinating that here we are and everything from the 4 Blood Moons line up to within 2 days of the 2015.75 turning point and Congress pushed the whole debt issue off until the precise day of the ECM is just amazing. There is such order hidden behind everything that it is honestly unbelievable.
A client has tweeted a picture of a slide from our 1998 World Economic Conference tour we did around the globe. In retrospect those forecasts were simply astonishing all based upon alignments with the ECM. I think if I had another whole lifetime, this whole thing would keep me occupied trying to figure out this amazing order masked by what people think is random chaos. The ECM is simply the frequency of life for everything seems to align with it no matter what the field. The mere fact there are the Four Blood Moons that line up to 2 days before the turning point 2015.75 when there was no input regarding planetary movement is just mind-bending.
This is not my theory – it was my discovery. I have spent my life trying peel back the veil of chaos hiding the order beneath for truly everything is connected. This is why I say this has been a journey of which we are all a part of – not some theory I set out to prove. I have been the observer – not the creator
Are random events truly possible? Doesn’t the connection of events mean that specific events aren’t random? I seem to get randomly selected by government for the same things at a rate that would appear to exceed probability. Like random jury duty every time I’m eligible for last 30 years. Or random selected audits every year for same thing. So how do patterns and cycles relate to random events?
ANSWER: It is impossible to create any system that is random. No matter what, in computing, a pattern will always emerge precisely as this pretend random image that quickly falls into a pattern. It is simply impossible to create a truly random number generator. In gambling, there are card counters that they make illegal. Look at a casino and you will notice that they rotate the dealers regularly moving them from table to table. WHY? Because they will end up in a pattern. Even in roulette, there will be some numbers that never come up and others that regularly appear. A pattern will emerge so they move the dealers around to prevent people from playing the patterns. It is very interesting, but there is nothing that can ever be random. It is a part of life. There are some people you will be attracted to and others you prefer to stay away from at all costs.
