My first book, Costa Rica’s Guide to Making Money Offshore in Bull & Bear Markets (1) certainly helped attract wealthy, non-US investors in Costa Rica.

A good percentage of those sophisticated investors (including the head of the Costa Rican Stock Exchange) who contacted me, eventually hired me to help create a globally diversified, fully-hedged, low-risk, multi-currency portfolio.

What also helped tremendously was the fact that in accurately ‘reading’ what was is going on in the world, what was about to happen and what was highly likely to happen in the future using the overall conceptive framework of George Soros’s general theory of reflexivity in international investing, my clients’ investments proved to be unusually profitable.

The one ‘fault’ that I have always had with my predictions has been that I have always been well ahead of time but, when it comes to effective capital preservation, my clients were always delighted that we acted too early rather than too late.

What does this have to do with Christmas?


What does this have to do with the rest of your life?


All of the global economic indicators I follow are showing me that 2016 will be a very bloody year! And I do mean bloody as in blood in the streets figuratively and literally.

Geopolitically speaking – in the not so eloquent words of my Sergeant Major in the Royal Marine Commandos – much of the world today is one “giant clusterf*ck” and we’re likely to see events in 2016 that 99% of the population never imagined could happen except in disaster movies.

Living in the developed, first world you may think that you will be immune to these kinds of catastrophic problems, you will not.

In the U.S. for example, why is the federal government distributing obscene amounts of military equipment, weapons and ammunition to police departments around the country?

Even though Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates says that: “We have witnessed a remarkable drop in crime since the 1980’s — both violent crime and crime overall…”

Why is the military using southwestern states as a staging ground for guerrilla warfare drills like Jade Helm 15?

What exactly is the U.S. government and it’s agencies preparing for?

Do you seriously believe it’s ‘terrorism’?

Even though you are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist? (2) And you are 17,600 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack?

I’m not 100% sure exactly what is planned for 2016 – and yes! It’s all planned – but would agree with Attorney John W. Whitehead (3) who says that: “All of the signs point to something nasty up ahead.”

Please be careful out there and let’s hope that we’re very wrong and that we will all have a very Happy New Year!
