The Dollar Vigilante (TDV) is a joint-venture publication founded by two respected free-market speakers and analysts in the financial sector, Jeff Berwick and Ed Bugos.  Both Jeff and Ed consider themselves financial freedom fighters and have written extensively in the past about the ongoing and impending collapse of the US dollar based financial system.  They joined forces to publish TDV, a publication and community for dollar crash survivors.


Anarcho-Capitalist. Libertarian. Freedom fighter against mankind’s two biggest enemies, the State and the Central Banks. Jeff Berwick founded The Dollar Vigilante (TDV) in 2010 with Ed Bugos. Jeff is a prominent speaker at many of the world’s freedom, investment and cryptocurrency conferences including Anarchapulco, his own annual event in Acapulco, Mexico currently going on its 10th year.

Jeff’s background in the financial markets dates back to his founding of Canada’s largest financial website, Stockhouse.com, in 1994. In the late ‘90s the company expanded worldwide into 8 different countries and had 250 employees and a market capitalization of $240 million USD at the peak of the “tech bubble”. To this day more than a million investors use Stockhouse.com for investment information every month.

After selling the company in 2002 he tried to sail around the world and sank his boat in El Salvador. He then carried on via backpack to over 100 countries in a quest to understand the world through his own eyes and not the lens of the fakestream media.

Since founding TDV in 2010 he was the first financial analyst in the world to recommend Bitcoin at $3 in 2011. He also recommended Ethereum at $2 in 2016. Bitcoin went on to record a gain of 2,300,000% and Ethereum gained 239,900% from his recommendation price making him the most prolific financial analyst in the history of the world.

He has since been banned nearly everywhere for exposing the globalist and central bank systems but still publishes regular videos on Vigilante.tv with his dog Lucy.

He published a worldwide best selling book, ‘The Controlled Demolition of the American Empire’ in 2020 and was one of the first to expose the entire Covid plandemic psychological operation which he outlined in his book.

Berwick is no longer allowed on mainstream television, Youtube, Facebook and most other mainstream platforms as he constantly exposes government narratives and helps people to not only survive but profit from the financial collapse and the apocalypse.

Berwick also helped found the anarcho-capitalist country Liberland and is currently the Ambassador and Diplomat for Liberland in Mexico.

Senior Analyst


Ed is the Dollar Vigilante's Senior Analyst, Founding Partner and Editor. He is a financial analyst and investment strategist who specializes in precious metals and mining stocks. He has been a featured speaker at several investment conferences and has been quoted in various financial publications including Marketwatch and Forbes. Ed has been a dedicated investment professional since 1989, having started his career as a stock and futures broker on Howe Street at one of Vancouver's leading brokerage firms.

There Ed made money for his clients by financing the early rounds of exploration for diamonds in the North West Territories, where nobody previously believed they existed. Like Jeff, Ed has made millions for investors going against the grain like that. In 2000 Ed left the brokerage industry at the height of a tech mania to start one of the first gold and money newsletters online. He is one of the first and maybe still the only analyst to apply the Austrian Business Cycle Theory to the bull and bear market cycles on Wall Street. He has been covering the dollar collapse story since gold hit its multi decade bottom ($285).

In the last decade, Ed jumped on board the cryptocurrency train with Jeff Berwick early in the cycle, returning gains of hundreds and thousands in percentage points over the years. Ed is an ardent student of the Austrian School, and toils on a portfolio and trading strategies that he publishes in our newsletter regularly. He designs and publishes a macro investment strategy and a stock portfolio loosely based on his own.

Along with Jeff, Ed hates the State in the Rothbardian sense, and does everything he can to expose how central banks and governments rig the financial playing fields.
