China Experiencing Capital Flight

August 22, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP We’ve taken a keen and growing interest in China over the past few years, and with good reason! They are one of the most dynamic economies in the world. That isn’t to say they’ve not seen hardship or made mistakes. Indeed they have. What makes them dynamic is their response to what’s happening in the world. I mentioned before how the Chinese were buying up US properties, especially in premium areas like the San Francisco bay area. I can’t be entirely sure if this is attributable to … [Read More...]

American Priorities

August 15, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The people of the United States were in an uproar over Gabby Douglas NOT putting her hand over her heart for the national anthem upon winning the gold. Of all the socialist policies we have here in the United States, we don’t socialize the sponsorship of Olympic athletes. We socialize the preparation for HOSTING it here, but not the athletes themselves. They are actually privately sponsored. This is not true for every country, but it is true for the US. With that said, they don’t ow … [Read More...]

Rio Olympics: The Economy of Athletic Events

August 8, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The opening ceremony for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games was Friday, August 5th. These are the very best of the best from every country, and an elite group of athletes. That these people exist as they do, and have accomplished what they have, is a tremendous inspiration. I see no problem with athletic competitions. Furthermore, sports and other athletic competitions have their merits. They can teach cooperation, teamwork, ambition, discipline, structure, integrity, strategy, … [Read More...]

The Small Business Struggle

August 1, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director “The government is inefficient at providing public goods, and it is terrible at manipulating the markets for private goods.” ~ David Brunori, Forbes As most of you already know, I’ve been an entrepreneur for most of my life. I’ve started businesses and had both my fair share of successes and failures. I might be one of the staunchest advocates of small businesses, entrepreneurship, and capital venture out there. I’m a dyed in the wool capitalist, and as such, I don’t just wish for MY … [Read More...]

Regulation Nation: The Economic Black Hole

July 25, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP There are countless ways in which the economic black hole we know as government destroys and robs wealth. You are familiar with taxes, I’m sure. For some people it’s as much as 4 months of labor per year. I heard one person suggest that the reason why tax day is on April 15th every year is because that day generally marks the point in the calendar year when you start earning for yourself. From January 1st to April 15th, many are working for the federal government. Sickening when you thi … [Read More...]

Regulation Nation: The Death of Opportunity

July 18, 2016 By: Bobby Casey GWP Managing Director While I listen to government advocates tell me how the police and regulations protect me and my family from the dark underbelly and dregs of society, I can’t help but wonder who comprises that felonious population. When I think about that from which a reasonable person would need protections, murderers, rapists, kidnappers, thieves, and fraudsters come to mind. They violate the rights of people, and are both dangerous and criminal. When I look at the actual statistics of who o … [Read More...]

R.I.P. US Rule of Law

July 11, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Over the course of several years, I’ve watched as the US government and its lower tiers summarily wipe their proverbial asses with the rule of law. While I subscribe to a capitalist brand of anarchism, I am also practical. I do follow the laws. My businesses follow the laws. I do this because I have better things to do with my life than spend it in a jail cell… and I assume so do my clients. Like I said: I’m practical. But I also seem to hold myself to a greater standard than the state, … [Read More...]

Is Italy Indicative of EU Economic Policy to Come?

July 5, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Brexit was a great economic and political decision for the UK. I stand by that. While I see Remain people calling Leave proponents racists and xenophobes… I likewise see Leave people calling Remain advocates dotty millennials who haven’t the first clue what the EU is or does. I believe both sides are accurate to some extent in their depictions of the other side, but it can’t be entirely true lest this entire thing boils down to a sociological coin toss. Regardless of what the impetus w … [Read More...]

Brexit: Economics or Racism?

June 27, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP As you might know if you follow me on social media, I’m ecstatic about Brexit! My heart-felt congratulations to the United Kingdom for parceling off and getting out of the EU. As I wrote last week, I’m absolutely confident that the UK can stand on its own and that it does not need to cow-tow to a larger central government to have the benefits it had as a member nation of the EU. If it fails, it will be entirely the fault of the UK getting in its own way, not for lack of EU han … [Read More...]

European Union: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

June 20, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP So Iceland bailed on the EU bid… Britain is soon going to have a referendum to leave the EU… and now Switzerland is withdrawing her bid for membership. I said it about Britain and I’ll say it about any other country walking away from the EU: good for you! The less centralized the better! Switzerland would’ve been a huge boon for the EU, but alas, they will not get the one member that stood to bring deep pockets to the table. And who could blame them? As one of the richest countri … [Read More...]

Symptoms of Distress

June 13, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP There are so many distress signals going off, I hardly know where to begin! These signals, however, all come down to one thing though: government failure. It’s like if you had a sore throat, body ache, and a fever… chances are they are all symptomatic of the same problem: a cold. The Financial Times suggests that we will need another crisis to usher in a new monetary and fiscal policy since the political class doesn’t have the guts to do it now. Perhaps under the cover of crisis th … [Read More...]

Does Political Class Want Economic Calamity?

June 6, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP There’s a reason why I’ve opted out of US politics. It’s entirely predicated on scapegoating. Blame the democrats, blame the republicans, blame racism, blame sexism, blame the previous administration, blame the rich, or blame the immigrants. Always finger-pointing, but never solving anything. The reality is, the market has no bias or prejudice. Much like nature itself, you will either survive or you won’t… and it cares not which of the two you are. Ultimately, though, nature and the ma … [Read More...]

In Memory of the American Middle Class

May 30, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP This is Memorial Day weekend. Many Americans will be barbequing and fondly remembering the fallen members of the US military. I will not be among them. Don’t get me wrong: I love me some grilled meat! But I’m not much for nationalistic pageantry. I don’t tow the patriotic lines about how our military fights for our freedom. They don’t. It’s one thing to sincerely believe it, it’s another to say that it’s true. Every single time Americans have gone to war, our recovery leaves us all a l … [Read More...]
