A Beautiful Message of Liberty – Spoiler Alert: Get out of the US

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

The TDV team have taken a semi-respite.  In free-market terms, that means that we have taken a day or two off (and for TDV subscribers, we are going to take one of our two weeks per year off from our subscription letter).  

In real terms, though, it means we won't stop pushing good ideas forward every day publicly… we can't help ourselves.

Hello from Vancouver, Kanada,

I spent some time at the Agora Financial Symposium this week.  On one of the panels was Doug Casey, Doug French and Jeffrey Tucker, amongst others and the final question asked of each was, "what is your #1 investment pick for the coming years?"

Jeffrey Tucker answered, "Galt's Gulch Chile"!  (photo of Mr. Tucker and myself last week at Freedomfest)

The Weekend Vigilante July 20, 2013 – Life, Love and Waking Up

Hello from beautiful Acapulco Bay,

The Weekend Vigilante July 13, 2013 – Going Galt in Las Vegas

Hello from Freedomfest in Las Vegas,

For a guy like me, if I am forced to spend time in the USSA, there are worse places than Las Vegas.  I'm a 24 hour kind of person, don't like early bar closing times, like drinking while I walk down the street, like smoking indoors (especially when it is 109F outside), playing poker and always having the option to do something.
