Whether by design or by endless error, the US is fast declining by almost any economic statistic.  Many question whether it was by design or ignorance.  There is plenty of evidence that this wholesale destruction of what was once America (and is now just the US) was both.

Panopticon Coming to a Neighbourhood Near You!

The US is fast becoming one massive open air prison camp. Few realize that one by one their natural rights are being stripped by the fascist “criminal” law system. As we’ve noted in the past, more than 30% of those under 23 have been arrested as the fascist US Government works to ensnare as many as possible into permanent indentured servitude through a criminal record.

Hello from sunny Santo Domingo,

TDV Manager, Michael Bach and I have been on a whirlwind tour from Vancouver to LA and are now in the Dominican Republic (DR) checking on the progress of many Dollar Vigilante clients' residency and passport applications (see more about our DR passport services here) .

I was interested to get Michael's take on our trip. While he hails from Denmark he has lived in Acapulco for more than a decade without once leaving its sunny shores. The results are in: He liked Vancouver, he loves Santo Domingo and he absolutely hated LA.

The differences between LA and Santo Domingo were stark.

Hello all,

I am on a flight from LA to the Dominican Republic at the moment but thought you might find this video of interest.  It was an interview I did at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference.  Here is how Cambridge House described the interview:

In an entertaining conversation with anchor Bridgitte Anderson, self-described anarchist Jeff Berwick bemoans on the "debt fantasyland" the Western World is mired in, reveals the foundations of his conversion to a libertarian and anarchist worldview and, in his most controversial statement, declares, "...everything Obama does is unconstitutional!"

[Editor's Note: The following is from TDV's Correspondent in Italy, Alexander Jousse]

This past week has been a very turbulent time for Italy.  And it wasn't just the grounding of the Concordia cruise ship by a playboy captain; but the grounding of the country by Euro-technocrat usurper Darth Monti, trying to impress his Keynesian buddies with his latest attempts to ‘Save Italy’!

Government is imaginary, as are the borders they claim denote the area where they profess to have a monopoly on violence.

Forced Expatriation Coming to the USSA

January 20, 2012
comments: 6

Here at The Dollar Vigilante (TDV), we’ve got a saying: it’s all been done before. All nation states start out small and the better of the bunch are born in liberty and dynamism, freedom of thought, freedom of trade and a willingness to take chances. And they all follow a similar path on the way down as the state grows ever more all encompassing  – they come to believe their own propaganda, that they can do no wrong and that they will reign forever.  Corrupt and decadent, they lose the essential qualities that allowed them to thrive.

The Economic Outlook for Canada is Dire Says the Bank of Canada

[Editor's Note: The following is from Chris Horlacher, TDV's Toronto, Canada Correspondent]

One typically doesn’t look to government bureaucracies for hard-nosed, objective discussions on the economy.  Far too often official reports are skewed to paint a much rosier picture than what is unfolding in reality.  Case in point, the repeated denials from Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve, Fannie Mae and various oversight committees circa 2006 that the US housing market was anything but an excellent place to invest your money.
