10 Signs The US Is Rapidly Changing: Of Mass Discontent, Economic Decline & A Steadily Closing Border

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

The US is changing in big and disparate ways. It is tough to make sense of it all. Surely, the US government is out of control and in steady decline, representing a major danger for the economy and the world generally, but at the same time there have been big positives in recent memory, like bitcoin, 3D printing, and so on. Even police are going to jail in the US sometimes. 

I am noticing the old way of making laws doesn't work anymore. Technology is so much faster than bureaucracy it is like a slapstick comedy.

Nations all over the world appear befuddled about bitcoin, and with good reason.

Bitcoin doesn't offer itself to taxation and regulation like government authorities need in order to maintain their dominance. Instead, bitcoin offers itself to creativity and innovation, two things that make governments nervous when they come from the grassroots.

Welcome to Sunday, a time to review what we wrote about at TDV this week! But before that, let’s take a look at what was in our subscriber-only publication, TDV’s Dispatch.

First up in my “Memory Hole”, well, more Fed and Yellen. Sigh. Next, Jeff Berwick got into bitcoin for your place of business. The time is now to join the revolution we’ve been telling you about. Then, Ed Bugos had a look at the markets and his outlook.

Next, Jeff took us around the world of the absurd in his weekly “Other News from TEOTMSAWKI and TDV Related Tidbits”. Finally, we profiled Tommy Chong!

Hello from somewhere in the sky between Acapulco, Mexico City, Phoenix or Vancouver,

Why so vague?  Well, I am writing this en route to Vancouver from Acapulco, with stops in Mexico City and Phoenix and by the time it gets sent out that is about as certain as I can be about my exact location!  If I had to hazard a guess, I am probably in a backroom at the Phoenix or Vancouver airport being quizzed about my intentions.

We have been inundanted all week with interest in our "Crisis Conference" in Panama next month.  The amount of interest has surprised even myself but the really surprising parts are all the stories we are hearing from those who want to attend.

Countless people have been telling us of how they are unable to transfer their capital out of their own countries and they have been contacting us to see if we can help and if the information we will be divulging at the conference can help them internationalize their assets.  The short answer, in almost every case, has been yes.

Does everyone in America have a lawyer on speed dial?

McDonald's is being sued again by a California woman who claims she was scalded by their hot coffee. In 1990, a New Mexico woman was awarded $2.9 million in a hot-coffee lawsuit against McDonald's; the award was later reduced to about $500,000. Meanwhile, a continent away, a New Jersey woman is suing a real estate developer for not disclosing the presence of a 'bad' neighbor when she purchased a house.

Even Billionaires Don't Know How To Legally Internationalize Assets

In the old days (pre 9/11) it used to be quite easy for people with money to ship their funds offshore to a jurisdiction like Switzerland to get some assets outside of the US and keep it away from the prying eyes of the US government, IRS, NSA and countless other three-letter agencies and away from frivolous lawsuits in the US which are rampant.

Those days have long passed.  There are now more sophisticated, totally legal ways of doing the same but we never cease to be amazed how few people know about it.
