Financial Repression Authority with Simon Black

A graduate of West Point he served tours of duty in the middle east as an intelligence officer before beginning SovereignMan.com.

PODCAST - 30 Minutes

Financial Repression

"Financial Repression is Theft. It is a very clever, cunning deceitful form of theft. Governments are stealing purchasing power and essentially defaulting on their obligation to maintain a sound currency."

"Presently in many cases you have to pay a bankrupt government for the privilege of loaning them money! Negative real interest rates is covert theft."

Simon believes that the mentality of many governments has shifted from an 'abundance mentality' to a negative 'scarcity mentality' that has left them chasing innocent, harmless people around the world (ie witness FATCA and the avalanche of renouncing citizenship) versus trying to attract productive people, being more competitive and "making the pie bigger". This is no longer the thinking that the US was founded on.

The Soverign Man Approach

The problem we're facing is the fragility and danger that comes from massive centralization of economic and political power. The solution then, is to decentralize.

This strategy of diversifying aspects of your life across the globe is called Internationalization, and that's what Sovereign Man's Six Pillars of Self Reliance are about.

The Six Pillars of Self Reliance - Financial sovereignty in the 21st century

    1. Move your money to safety - Foreign banking
    2. Establish new roots abroad - Second residence and second passport
    3. Don't bet your life on a single currency - Alternative stores of value
    4. Rely on yourself - Personal resilience in a fragile world
    5. Grow your wealth - Entrepreneurship and private investments
    6. Protect what you hold dear - Asset protection and privacy

Intelligence Service

Sovereign Man: Confidential is an intelligence service, which provides people with the resources and contacts they need to be able to make the right decisions regarding their life and their assets. The only intelligence service that works with the sole goal of increasing freedom. Rational solutions that make sense no matter what around the globe for securing your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Agricultural Land Corporation (ALC)- A substantial agricultural business in Chile which acquires, develops, and operates very high quality and productive agricultural property. It's a tremendously exciting project, because as Simon himself has written, agriculture might very well be the smartest investment of the decade.

Sovereign Valley Organic wine and produce in Chile - Sovereign Man's private farm in central Chile produces vast quantities of agricultural produce, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs, meat, and wine.
