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...]

Free Markets Making a Comeback?

May 23, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP I’ve never seen socialism bail out a country in dire straits. Every nation under economic hardship has largely relied on capitalism to save itself from total ruin. Individuals are the same way. Sure, there are the bailouts and the welfare programs, but even those run out at some point. Often, the case is that socialism is the very culprit that led to the economic disasters in the first place. Be it Venezuela or Puerto Rico, Greece or Cyprus, these are all a series of circumstances w … [Read More...]

Money Laundering & Offshore Fear-Mongering

May 16, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Of all the things to resent about former President Richard Nixon, tax evasion is not one of them for me. I know that’s not a very popular opinion, and while I in no way suggest you evade taxes, I personally don’t see it as a crime. For me to see something as a crime, I need to know who the victim was, or what the damages were. Otherwise, it’s just someone being disobedient. The American people didn’t suffer because Nixon didn’t pay his taxes. The American people suffered because he put … [Read More...]

Money Problems

May 9, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP One of the best parts of a truly free market, is the on-going experiment to find the BEST practices. It’s forever evolving. People go about their business acquainting themselves with the natural world around them, figuring out what will help them, and what will kill them. They take note, and pass on that information. For eons human beings have passed on information for the next generation, and each generation has generally been greater than its predecessor. But recently… and by recent, … [Read More...]

Cultural Marxism and the Birth of Modern Thoughtcrime

May 6, 2016 By: Claudio Grass, Contributor from Global Gold If a person has no philosophical thoughts, certain questions will never cross his mind. As a young man, there were many issues and ideas that never concerned me as they do today. There is one question, however, which has intrigued me for the longest time, and it still fascinates me as intensely as it did back then: Does spirit precede matter or is it the other way around? In other words, does human consciousness create what we perceive as our reality and physical existence or … [Read More...]
