Why I went to Iraq, Ukraine, Ethiopia, and Myanmar in the last three months

September 4, 2014
Santiago, Chile


It’s really great to be back in Chile. Technically it’s still winter here, but the sun is shining this morning, and the temperature is in the mid-60s.

This is a place that I absolutely love to spend time. And it’s not just the weather (though it is fantastic).

The business opportunities here are incredible. I’m constantly testing new ideas in the marketplace with great success… almost to the point that I have to turn off that part of my brain just so I can remain focused on existing ventures.

And it’s incredibly easy for anyone to get started here. I often joke that I could take a boatload of North Koreans and obtain Chilean residency for them. And I’m only half-kidding.

Chile has some of the most flexible immigration laws in the world. My team down here consists of folks from all over—Ukraine, Thailand, Slovenia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Argentina, Canada, Lithuania, the US, and more.

It means just about anyone can come and live here. You can start a business and import employees from anywhere in the world. This is incredibly rare.

The lifestyle here is also fantastic. I’ve seen folks from all walks of life—from young(ish) singles who can’t believe their odds here, to retirees who have fallen into a great network of new friends.

But perhaps best of all, Chile is one of a handful of countries where you can be left alone to live your life.

There’s very little government interference here. You don’t see black-clad paramilitaries with their combat boots and assault rifles going out to terrorize the public.

There’s no constant bickering over the horrific state of government finances, no endless parade of bureaucrats trying to control everything from what you can/cannot put in your body to how you can raise your own child.

To me, this is the best benefit of all. I feel much more free here in Chile than just about anywhere else.

Yes, certainly the country has its problems. But as I was remarking to a friend the other night, Chile’s problems are fledgling nuisances compared to the rest of the world’s challenges.

Think about it— nearly every major western economic power is bankrupt.

Europe is such a disaster that the central bank there has taken certain interest rates firmly into NEGATIVE territory.

Japan’s government is spending 25% of central government tax revenue just to pay INTEREST on the debt. And that’s with interest rates at practically ZERO.

And the US government’s own figures show their balance sheet has a NEGATIVE value of MINUS $16.9 TRILLION. Plus it gets worse every year.

By the time mandatory entitlements like Social Security and Medicare get paid, plus interest on the debt, the US government has blown through almost ALL of its tax revenue.

The only way they can pay for practically everything that we think of as government—the military, homeland security, national parks, the fuel that goes into Air Force One, etc.—is by going deeper into debt.

They’ve tried to fix this problem by printing trillions of dollars and trying to pass it all off as a valuable currency.

But the rest of the world ain’t buyin’ it. Not anymore.

Dozens of countries have already started to trade with one another in a currency other than US dollars. Central banks are stocking up on gold.

China, along with other BRICS nations, has launched its own competitor to the International Monetary Fund.

Major Fortune 500 companies have begun issuing bonds denominated in Chinese renminbi.

And major political leaders around the world, including the French Finance Minister, have called for a complete reset in the global financial system.

Everyone knows that the US dollar’s time is coming to an end.

For decades, America has been able to enjoy the absurd privilege of being able to conjure money out of thin air at no cost, then use that free money to buy things from foreigners.

So the rest of the world is toiling away, drilling for oil, manufacturing products, mining for resources, and working in the fields.

In exchange, they receive paper currency that took an American central banker two seconds to create.

Sounds like a fair trade, eh?

This is a total scam. And it’s coming to an end. Just like this massive debt bubble.

The only question is whether you think this transition is a CONSEQUENCE-FREE environment?

Step back and look at the big picture. Your instincts will tell you the truth. We all have them.

Just like animals in the wild, our instincts tell us when we’re in danger. It’s when we let our brains get in the way that things become clouded.

Governments get involved and tell us not to worry.

Talking heads on TV spew out senseless drivel with nonsensical platitudes like “Our debt doesn’t matter because we owe it to ourselves.” (so screwing ourselves is OK?)

In any system as messed up as this one, there are serious consequences afoot. This time is not different from nearly all the historical examples of empires who have come before us.

When governments go broke, they pillage and plunder from the people. Simple.

They debase the currency. They impose capital controls. They raise taxes. They confiscate assets from the citizens. They create a myriad of new rules and regulations. They roll out aggressive police forces.

And in general, people’s standards of living fall dramatically. At least, this is what happens to people who ignore their instincts.

For people paying attention and who follow their instincts, this is an incredibly exciting time to be alive.

If you know what���s coming, you can take steps now to prevent the damage. More importantly, you can invest properly in the future.

In the early 1900s, few people would have given much thought to the United States. It was still a young country, when the old boys like Great Britain were still in charge.

Back then, investing in America would have been considered risky and foolish. But some people had the foresight to do this, and they created generational wealth.

The same opportunities exist today. If you can see the writing on the wall, there’s an unbelievable amount of money that can be made… and saved… from making the right decisions.

If your instincts are telling you that something is wrong with the system, it’s time to do something about it.

This doesn’t need to be complicated, expensive, or time consuming. It’s my job to make it simple for you. That’s why I’m here. I’m your resource.

I travel all over the world on your behalf; in the last three months I went to 25 countries, Iraq, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Myanmar, and more.
