Jeff Berwick's Top Ten Travel Tips For Amerika

July 15, 2014

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

I have done a lot of traveling through Amerika and I think I've picked up a few tricks to help others, who have thus far gone sans a first-hand taste of the "Land of the Slaves."

1. Refuse body scanners. When TSA wants you to walk through their radiation machines, tell them that many years of baseball has hurt your arms and you can't lift them up. Somebody is going to have to feel you up and fondle you instead. Beats cancer though.

Canada’s Foreign Policy is Just as Bad as America’s

July 14, 2014

[Editor’s Note: The following is by TDV’s Mexico-based education correspondent, Jorge Gato]

As an American, I always had the feeling our northern neighbor was nice. Too nice. I assumed Canada simply played the good cop to Uncle Sam's bad cop. Brushing up on Canadian political history to test this hypothesis, I found Canada lauded as seminal in international peacekeeping, its greatest achievements being multilateralism, globalism, and the upkeep of international institutions. After all, it was Roméo Dallaire's actions under the auspices of the United Nations who single-handedly saved upwards of 30,000 Third World lives. I certainly don't wish to detract from Dallaire's work, because blessed are the peacekeepers.

July 13, 2014

Thomas Piketty is a new rockstar in the Keynesian and Marxist economic world. In the best-seller Capital in the Twenty-First Century, an onslaught of data I haven't read nor plan on reading, he demonstrates how he is an obsolete economist ignorant of 21st century economic tools.

Expat Blindness

July 11, 2014

[Editor’s Note: The following post is by TDV contributor, Jay Fonseca]

Is it human nature to always believe the grass is greener on the other side? Or is that just the nature of the depressed and heavily medicated? Having emigrated from the USSA six months ago, I am incredibly happy and content with my decision and my new life…there must be something wrong with me.

Secessionist Movements & Localized-Globalization

July 10, 2014

[Following post by TDV Head Researcher Justin O'Connell]

The winds of independence are blowing throughout the world, and nothing could be better for our future. This host of seccessionist movements, from Crimea to Venice to the US has major implications for the future of life on earth, and spells decentralization for a heretofore centralized world. But localization does not necessarily mean withdrawal from the world "out there," just withdrawal from those institutions beyond our local communities or without our consent which have a proclivity to dominate.

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-In-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

The empire has no clothes. Debt weighs down the crony-capitalist system and flowers of alternative realities are cropping up. The middle class has been brought to the brink, practically eviscerated over the past ten years in the western world. Stock markets - high on intraveneous debt cocktails - post record nominal highs daily.

Comatose On Fourth Of July - TDV Week in Review: July 6th, 2014

July 6, 2014

I awoke on yet another Fourth of July and could feel the excitement in the air. This Fourth of July, a particularly exciting Dependence Day, fell on a Friday, so therefore kicking off a three-day weekend. Very exciting for many of 'my fellow Americans' as many of them work 40-60 hour weeks for about $10-$20 an hour, enough for alcohol, fast food and rent....and their school debts.
