Larry Edelson
Tribute Page

Larry Edelson, 62, Senior Editor at Weiss Research, passed away peacefully on March 2, 2017.

Larry was a modern day Nostradamus who remained actively involved in his research until his very last days. He was a deep thinker about the future and practiced what he preached: Not only did he warn countless others to prepare for the long-term cycles of history, he also took important steps to prepare for the cycle of his own life.

Larry co-founded The Edelson Institute; he created a proprietary computer model that embodies his forecasting acumen; and he mentored Wayne Burritt, a very worthy successor – all prescient preparations to make it possible for his Institute to carry on his excellent work for years to come.

To celebrate his life, he leaves his cherished, devoted, and loving family, including his wife, Nong; his children Dr. Kari Edelson, Aaron Edelson, Kevin Edelson, Alex Edelson, and Megan Edelson; and many others.

    I miss Larry’s unique view of the world. I feel I’ve learned more from the man, in the past three years, than any other financial annalists I’ve followed over the previous 35 years. My condolences to his readership and his entire family.

    I was very sorry to learn of Larry Edelson’s death. At first, I was shocked and thought it might be some kind of a cruel joke.

    For the past several years I have very much enjoyed reading and listening to Larry’s big picture view of what can and does influence financial markets. I will very much miss him and his very personal insights.

    My condolences to his family and colleagues.

    God Bless Larry! He understood very much and shared his knowledge and intuition freely!

    I read Larry’s investment letters and writings for tens of years and will sorely miss them until I die (now 75 years old) and I am looking forward for his research,

    I just returned from a month overseas, without email, to learn of Larry’s death. My wife and I, RWR subscribers for years, are shocked and deeply saddened by this tragedy. Larry had come to be, simply put, a dear and trusted member of our family. We looked forward eagerly each day to his insights and wisdom, both concerning investing and life in general. He always impressed us with his honesty and willingness to call events as he saw them, even when his calls diverged from the big winds made by all the talking heads in NYC and Washington. We truly miss and mourn Larry. Vaya con Dios, friend!

    A remarkable gentleman, with a rare foresight and an openly honest quality, someone that you could always trust. I felt there was something wrong over here in the UK when I missed reading his weekly thoughts for Weiss, something I have done for many years. My love and condolences go out to his family and friends.

    I was shocked to hear of Larry’s passing. He will be greatly missed.
    My condolences to his family and friends.


  11. Evelyn McMillan Hughes April 10, 2017

    My husband and I were in a state of shock when we first read the news. We had been on vacation and were unaware of his passing. We had been followers of his writings and predictions for 15 years and we relied on his vision to help us through some difficult times. We learned to rely of his frankness
    and his forecasting, not because his timing was always correct, but rather to give some direction to future events. He earned our trust the old fashioned way, and we feel a great loss. May God bring comfort to his family and friends, at this very difficult time.


  12. An old friend April 14, 2017

    RIP Larry! Should be fun watching it from that side eh?
    Positive thoughts and prayers to your family.
    God Bless


  13. Maxine Burt April 16, 2017

    So saddened of Larry’s passing. He will be remembered by many. Condolences to his
    family and friends.

    We lost a great intellect and human being far too soon..


  15. Larry Raff April 19, 2017

    My heart felt condolences to the Edelson family.
    I really enjoyed reading and seeing his big picture views on the world and their implications on investments.

    His passing is a loss obviously to his family and friends but also to the broader investment community.


  16. Gus April 20, 2017

    I am sorry for your loss! It is never easy, but the good memories, can help make it bearable. Once I lamented a loss, and I was told, to rejoice for the time that God had given this person in my life, rather than they are gone. For if they had never existed, I would never have had the loss, but also would never had the experience which was valuable enough to cause such grief.


  17. Tim April 20, 2017

    I did not find out until today, 4/20/2017. He died too soon. I can see Larry’s videos of contemporary events if he was around now. We are entering a period of great turmoil both economically and politically. He was one voice that gave you an idea about where things are going and was non chalant about doing so. He will be missed. His advice was down to earth and representative of what was really going on in the markets without the hype you see on the MSM or other outlets. As I said before, he will be sorely missed as the events of 2017 begin to unwind. Gone too soon. A Larry fan from M&M 7 years going.


  18. Alejandro del Castillo V April 20, 2017

    I just knowed him by all his incredible work and knowledge.

    He was a wonderful man with the teachings he always gave.

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom for so many years.

    All the world really will miss you.


  19. Diane Caldwe;; April 20, 2017

    I am so saddened and shocked to learn of the passing of Larry Edelson.

    I met him several years ago now at a financial seminar & he’s a man and a talent that will be sorely missed.

    My deepest sympathy to his family. God speed!


  20. Dick B April 21, 2017

    I always appreciated and admired Larry’s incite to and on the international scene. I am one that will miss the wit and knowledge. It took a large investment of time to get it together as he did on the finances of the world interwoven with the political scene. He was a good geopolitical analysts. There aren’t many. Seems it has to come from your bones. He was in a class with Bill Bonner.


  21. Charles and Joanne Rosendorf April 21, 2017

    Our condolences to Family and Friends. Rest in Peace Larry.

    Today, April 21, 2017, I learned, too late I’m afraid, of the passing of Larry Edelson. Like all of his readers, I am stunned and saddened. I never had the pleasure of meeting Larry, Martin or Mike, but I have been with them from the beginning, and I count my association with the Weiss Group as a bright part in my life. The integrity, transparency and professionalism demonstrated by these men is easily recognized, and deeply appreciated.

    During the years recovering from my injuries at the World Trade Center, Larry and his colleagues educated, supported and explained the workings of the market. I did not choose to be an investor; the events of that day required me to become one, and in this, I count The Weiss Group as family. They have steered me clear of market pitfalls and allowed my to profit safely – essential for a cop who could not work.

    I considered Larry as part of my team, a dedicated group of professionals committed to guiding our family through a very difficult time. We made it, despite the financial crisis, and worse. Mission accomplished, Larry – my family and I thank you and will always speak well of you. We know you walk with God. – John Egan, Det. Sergeant, NYPD (ret.)


  24. Betty McCain April 22, 2017

    I had not been reading Larry’s work for very long and thought of him as an intelligent and knowledgeable man. I was shocked and sorry to hear of his death and will miss him. May he rest in peace.


  25. Greg Scapellati April 22, 2017

    I’ve enjoyed this insight of financing and similar subjects. May he rest in peace,and may the family remember how he lived, for life is to be celebrated.


  26. Greg Scapellati April 22, 2017

    Enjoy the good memories that you have of Mr. Edelson, for they can’t be stolen from your mind. May he rest in peace and always hold his memory close to your heart.


  27. Karen April 26, 2017

    I am so sorry. I was just looking through my emails wondering where my “Larry Edelson” mail went. I’m saddened. God bless his soul and give strength to his family and friends.


  28. Jeffrey H. Dennis April 27, 2017

    So saddened about the passing of a most committed and articulated man.. I know little about His personal life other than his devotion to his family.. I live in the Bahamas and much of my analytical work was similar to Larry’s.. I had hoped to personally meet him in Palm Beach where I have a condo getaway.. Regretfully that never will happen although I believed he would be rather surprised how our lives had many parallels.. May God’s grace be with him and may he find eternal peace in the hereafter.. Gone but not forgotten by someone that never shared the pleasure of his company..


  29. Mary G April 29, 2017

    Larry will be missed very, very much He was unique, intelligent and prescient. Historical perspective is sorely missing today and he was a voice alone teaching and educating those of us who respected his knowledge and opinions.

    My sympathy to his family.

    I was so sad to learn about Larry passing away, He will be greatly missed by all whom had got to know Him ! God speed to his Family !


  31. dean May 8, 2017

    I loved this man. thank you Larry for you touched soo many!


  32. Markos Papadopoulos May 25, 2017

    I have not known Larry face to face and it was always a project of mine to do so. Larry has been a great inspiration in getting me into investing intelligently. Whenever he would send one of his great emails, he would invite me to attend one of his webcasts it was always a thrill. Larry is a great loss for humanity, a great economist, a great Man. I will miss him very much but I have saved every single bit of information he was so generous to share with us, and for years to come he will be guiding me along the path of investment. To his close family, extended family, friends, investment associates and partners we all stand in sorrow at our great loss.


  33. Alan Arnold May 30, 2017

    I used to watch Larry’s analysis of the markets every Tuesday, for the pure pleasure of his erudition and sense of complete mastery of the material. Larry took special pleasure in his study of Gold, a difficult subject. He was invariably contrarian to other analysts, and invariably right. Every once in a while, Gold would be contrarian to Larry, and he warned us of this also. His masterful charting, with every branch point assigned a probability, was just the surface over an almost mystical intuition, the product of Larry’s deep study of cycles, the mass of the iceberg below the waves. Larry was already a master of socionomics, when the term became popular. Knowledge implies responsibility, and Larry was also the doctor, telling us what we need to hear, not what we want to hear. But Larry never let go the joy of life, saying without words, come, carry on. L’ Haim, Larry, maybe a wee dram sometime on the other side in one of those cozy little New York bars.

    I followed Larry and was shocked to hear of his death. The videos of his china trip about the silk road were amazing. Thanks Larry. YOU WERE TRULY GREAT.
