Globalization vs Protectionism

Globalization becoming the economic scapegoat of protectionists. December 5, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Protectionism has become the newly embraced talking point of the political class. The disturbing part is, this marks the era of free trade and globalization becoming economic scapegoats. Never mind what the truth is: any two things that happen at the same time automatically are causally intertwined! This is the new line of “reason” passing for economic logic. It’s disturbing because it is, like many flawed policies, … [Read More...]

CalExit: California’s Attempt at Secession

What will California need to do for a successful secession? November 28, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP I have been a strong advocate and defender of secession movements. I encourage independence whenever and wherever possible. I was pulling for Scotland and I was happy for the UK when they succeeded in passing their referendum to leave the EU. Decentralization is a fantastic step toward freedom. These are charges typically – though not ALWAYS – lead by the right leaning parties. Certainly in the United States, secession i … [Read More...]

Australia Following Cashless Agenda

Australia turns toward a cashless society but could that result in the banks getting too much control? November 21, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP In what appears to be one of the quickest U-Turns in currency history, Australia might give Sweden a run for its cashless money! It’s been just a bit over 100 years since Australia issued its first bank notes (around the same time the US instituted its Federal Reserve Bank), and now Oz is turning away from cash. Government wastes no time in pushing its agendas. For example, w … [Read More...]

Getting Back to Basics With Gold

Gold Still In A Bull Market. Why Fundamentals Outweigh Short-Term Market Gains. November 17, 2016 By: Claudio Grass, GlobalGold.ch 2016 is gold’s big bull run. The precious metal rose close to 20% this year, pushed by a summer rally that peaked on July 10th. But then, gold experienced a bumpy ride during the remainder of the summer, as investors were concerned about the Federal Reserve’s decision on the rate hike. This volatility was underlined by the immense uncertainty that prevailed in the gold market. “Trusting” the establi … [Read More...]

Post Election Strategies

This election season had a lot of people looking into expatriation and it's an idea worth exploring! November 14, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The election results are in. It’s settled. Trump won the electoral vote. Hillary won the popular vote OF THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY VOTED. And “Did Not Vote” received the highest tally among the entire voting population of the US. Basically, less than 25% of Americans legally allowed to vote, decided who the next President of the United States should be. Nice right? … [Read More...]

Local Government Tyranny on Small Business

With all the hype around the federal government’s goings, local government tyranny on small business is often forgotten November 7, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP It amazes me how so many Americans put so much stock in the federal government of the United States. I can certainly see why other countries would be concerned with who becomes the POTUS, since they will likely be on the receiving end of their foreign policies. But domestically, it seems a rather pointless, if not obviously rigged. I’m not a big advocate of bal … [Read More...]

Is Ireland’s Tax Regime Changing for the Worse?

Are changes to Ireland's tax regime harming the Irish economy? October 31, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP I can’t help but wonder what is going on with Ireland. It received a bailout a while ago from the EU, but one of the great things it had going for it was its tax code, and that is slowly being dismantled. Remember the Double Irish? We covered it here a while back. Basically it was a brilliant loophole that essentially made corporations location independent. It’s worth exploring the benefits Ireland reaped from this … [Read More...]

Love Him Or Hate Him: Trump Is The Revolution Against The Establishment

Regardless of sentiment, a Trump vote could be part of the revolution against the establishment October 28, 2016 By: Claudio Grass, Global Gold (Originally published in the Global Gold Outlook Report as well as Gold and Liberty on October 25, 2016.) The 2016 U.S. presidential elections are unprecedented: I don’t believe we have ever witnessed before a campaign year so toxic, so dangerously divisive and ad hominem. Both camps have vilified the opposition and their followers, creating a schism in society. There has been no rational dia … [Read More...]

Germany Seeing High Immigration & Emigration

In response to high immigration, Germany is seeing high emigration as well October 24, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP We write a good amount about expatriation. Much of it is Americans leaving the US for other countries, getting residencies, visas, passports, and citizenship because the US is heading in a very bad direction. Expatriation is one of many solutions I advocate here to achieve personal freedom.  Expatriation inevitably involves emigration, which in turn makes one an immigrant in their destination … [Read More...]

Currency devaluation is a vicious cycle brought on by central banks October 19, 2016 (Originally published on October 11, 2016 on GoldandLiberty.com by Nat Vein) Shared courtesy of Claudio Grass at Global Gold. Our friend Natalie Vein recently had the opportunity to conduct an extensive interview with Doug Casey, for our parent company, BFI. Based on his decades-long experience in investing and his many travels, he shares his views on the state of the world economy, his outlook on critical political developments in the US and in … [Read More...]

Spain’s Opportunities

Spain has a scant government, but they aren't worried and have plenty of opportunites October 17, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP There is a LOT of bad stuff going on right now. As if the no-talent circus known as the US Presidential election weren’t bad enough, the US recently bombed Yemen not long after Saudi Arabia did so. Just found a new study that shows over 55,000 Americans were brutalized by police in just one year. “Stop complaining and do something!” Yeah, I’m not stopping the American military industrial compl … [Read More...]

Obamacare Creating Criminals Out of Thin Air

Whatever the original intention, Obamacare is creating criminals out of thin air October 10, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP If there is ONE thing the government is good at, it’s exacerbating a problem and creating criminals out of thin air. One of the most effective ways of doing that is by an elaborate 75,000+ page system of codes known as taxes. It’s not just criminalizing you, there’s more to it. The stigma of being “non-compliant” with tax laws and codes can come with some heavy consequences. In some cases, your freedo … [Read More...]

Passports: Permission to Travel

Passports used to ensure safe passage, but now are just permission to travel October 3, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP It’s funny to think that had history taken just a slightly different turn, Global Wealth Protection wouldn’t exist in the form it does today. I imagine that could be said of everything and everyone to some extent. The purpose of Global Wealth Protection is really finding ways to live freer under the current circumstances which is why we highly encourage diversity in holdings, becoming location independent, an … [Read More...]
