Sovereign Man was founded in 2009 in the depths of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) with a simple premise in mind: More freedom. More prosperity.
Sadly the system is no better off since 2009. Global debt is still at an all-time high. Entire governments are insolvent. Pension funds, including Social Security and Medicare, are dangerously underfunded and running out of cash.
Banks across the west are thinly capitalized and in the danger zone once again. Central banks have engineered dangerous financial bubbles all over the world.
Governments are brazenly spying on everyone, from their own citizens to supposedly ‘trusted’ allies.
Our mission is to provide education and resources for smart, forward-thinking, globally-minded individuals to rise above the risks of bankrupt governments and fragile financial systems.
