Martin Armstrong On The (Imminent) Economics Of War

Tyler Durden's picture

"What jumps out at you from the data concerning war is very simplistic – war does not unfold when everyone is fat and happy.

 

Turn the economy down and war rises just as we are seeing wide-scale civil unrest.

 

These trends go hand in hand.

 

Government often NEEDS war because when the people get angry, they go after government.

 

In self-defense, government ALWAYS needs to blame some other country or group."
