Causal-Realist Economics, for the Real World.

Toronto, ON

“It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.” — Murray Rothbard

Liberland: A New Libertarian Micro-Nation Has Just Claimed Sovereignty

April 17, 2015

[The following post is by TDV Editor In Chief, Jeff Berwick]

A Czech man has created a new country. He's calling it Liberland to celebrate the sort of liberty-based ideals championed by libertarians. But, his project is much more than just a libertarian enclave. Rather, it's a big step forward for freedom on Planet Earth.

Liberland is a new European country founded upon the principles of freedom, and that’s why I’ve applied for citizenship just three days after its founding.

[The following post is by TDV Senior Analyst, Ed Bugos]

I urge you to consider my arguments for investing in gold and silver, and the miners that extract it.

I am holding on to my post 2008 forecast for gold reaching $3-5k per ounce by 2017 (and silver reaching $100) because the world’s largest governments continue their plunge into default, and cannot afford to let interest rates normalize if they don’t want to be forced into a rationalization.

Tax Day Cometh: To Hold Or Not To Hold an IRA

[The following post is by TDV Editor-In-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

Tomorrow in the US is the last day for tax slaves to pay their extortion fees.  It's a day, as a Permanent Tourist/Prior Taxpayer (PT), on which I remember how lucky I am to legally not have to pay income tax in any jurisdiction.  But, I realize it is a painful day for many.  In a way it is painful for me, also, to know that millions are being forced at gunpoint to hand over a large amount of their income to the biggest terrorist organization on Earth (the definition of terrorism being "the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes"), the US federal government.

[The following post is by TDV Editor-In-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

Last week we commented on how activists in New York had gotten around the government removal of an Edward Snowden statue by replacing his image with a hologram.

In the constant battle between the free market and its evil nemesis, government, the stakes were raised dramatically in Spain a few days later!

For those unaware, the fasco-communist government in Spain has been systematically destroying the economy and as its citizenry gets more unemployed (unemployment has been between 20-30% for the last few years) and upset the government has become incredibly tyrannical.

Rebellion Against Time In Mexico - TDV Week In Review, Sunday April 12, 2015

April 12, 2015

In Mexico, time is governed by nature, not government, at least for many. We here at The Dollar Vigilante would like to pledge our support to the indigenous peoples of Oaxaca who have refused to observe government time.  Instead, they observe the time of their ancestors. As Mexico News Daily reports,

It could be said that time has stopped in some rural areas of the state of Oaxaca, but it certainly didn’t change last Sunday morning when most of the rest of the country advanced their clocks by one hour.

This Is The Vigilante On Ayahuasca - The Weekend Vigilante April 11th, 2015

April 11, 2015

Hello from Anarchapulco,

Well, it's been a few weeks since I dropped everything and flew to Monterrey, Mexico, to try Ayahuasca.  I've received dozens of messages asking me about the experience and I mostly wanted to take a few weeks to reflect on it before coming out with a comment on it.

As preface, and as I've said before, I like to try everything once.  I really dislike people who have never had a drink but hate alcohol.  Or who have never had a puff of marijuana but demand that people with guns, being paid with extorted money, go out and kidnap people caught with it.
