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 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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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..

    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.

    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.

    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.


  11. 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.

    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.)
