What I heard from Stephen Hawking’s daughter last week

[Editor’s note: This letter was written by our Sovereign Woman—Viktorija.]

There’s something about our home towns...

We either have fond memories about where we grew up, or we never want to go back.

I grew up in a small village outside the capital city of Lithuania. So you can probably guess that I am in the second category: I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

Lithuania is a tiny country[...] Click here to continue reading

Our Sovereign Woman explores Turkey’s Citizenship by Investment program

[Editor’s note: This letter was written by Viktorija, our Sovereign Woman]

If Simon were writing this letter, I have no doubt he would start off telling you a wonderful tale dating back thousands of years to Turkey’s ancient history… probably something about the Trojan War.

I’ve always been a fan of Simon’s historical stories. But I don’t have his command of the humanities.

So I’ll start off today’s letter telling you about[...] Click here to continue reading

Sadly, Christopher Nolan never called

[Editor’s note: This letter was written by our Sovereign Woman—Viktorija.]

I grew up in a small village in Lithuania, raised by a single mother. So you can probably imagine my childhood was not one of wealth and luxury.

Just like when Simon was growing up, money was always tight and a constant source of stress in my home. But I’m grateful for that struggle because it taught me some very important lessons.

Tanzania: Come for the nature, stay for the stock market

[Editor’s Note: Today’s Note from the Field comes from Sovereign Man Team Member Joe Jarvis who recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.]

For some people it starts with loss of appetite. Others get a headache and nausea.

Pole, pole is the motto, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro-- slowly, slowly. At an altitude of 5,895 meters (19,340 feet), you can definitely feel the lack of oxygen on Africa’s highest mountain.

And while the tourists huff[...] Click here to continue reading

Three strikes against Social Security’s already dismal batting average

[Editor's note: While Simon is traveling today, other members of the Sovereign Man team penned today's missive.]

This doesn’t make front page news… But it should.

Every year, cost of living adjustments increase Social Security benefits.

Over the past decade, payouts have increased by an average of 1.66% per year, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

But for 2019, the increase will be 2.8% to keep pace with inflation.

A fantastic Plan B solution for your future children

The boat, named Eclipse, belonged to the Russian oligarch, Roman Abramovich – one of the richest men in the world. And the media went wild speculating why Abramovich had parked his mega-yacht in the US for more than a month.

The accounting scam that is hiding billions of losses in the US banking system

Sovereign Valley Farm, Chile
September 24, 2015

There’s not a doubt in my mind that one of the greatest scams in the world is modern banking.

When you think about it, every element of the system is stacked against us.

By making a deposit we are loaning our hard-earned savings to a bank, for which they pay us a whopping 0.1% interest.

In some parts of the world now they even[...] Click here to continue reading

Somebody show this chart to Jim Cramer

Cancun, Mexico
April 23, 2015

The next time some financial pundit tells you to buy stocks, show them this chart.

It’s an incredibly interesting take on not only how expensive stocks are right now, but also how the monetary system has left the average guy behind.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, when priced in the average blue-collar hourly wage (based on the US Labor Department’s historical data) is now, you guessed it,[...] Click here to continue reading

How to get a retirement visa in the Philippines if you’re over 35

If you’re over 35, a refundable bank deposit of just $20,000 – or, in some cases even less – buys you residency in the Philippines.

If you’re over 50 and have a pension income of at least $800 a month, a bank deposit of as little as $10,000 will suffice.

Even “ailing retirees,” those who have a non-contagious, pre-existing medical condition, which means they need close medical supervision and extra care, are catered for on[...] Click here to continue reading

The easiest place in the world to establish second residency

December 30, 2013
Santiago, Chile

Recently, we’ve discussed several different economic citizenship programs around the world. And while these programs are not for everyone due to their higher costs, they have all surfaced at the same time, and I would be derelict in my duties to not to inform you about these options.

Bottom line—it’s all good news. The supply of potential second citizenships is increasing. And I’m certain it’s going to continue[...] Click here to continue reading

How to open a bank account in Australia over the phone


These days it’s very difficult to find a bank that will open accounts for non-resident foreigners, and even do so remotely.



If you cannot show up in person to open an account, it is sometimes still possible to do so through an intermediary who knows exactly who to contact, in which part of the bank.

That’s why we devote so much time to cultivating the right contacts around the world[...] Click here to continue reading

An interesting loophole for Chilean residency

I’ve been in Chile now again for the past few weeks, and I’m really glad to be back. There’s lots of exciting stuff going on here, but today I want to tell you about a new way of obtaining residency in Chile that I’ve recently discovered.

This is hot off the presses as I’ve just come back from a meeting with one of my attorneys, and I’m really intrigued by this, simply because of[...] Click here to continue reading

Gold and Banking in Hong Kong

We’ve reported several times before that Hong Kong is one of the cheapest places in the world to buy gold. But the bottom line is that it’s getting a bit more difficult to do so.

At ................... Bank, for example,they will now only sell a maximum of HK$120,000 (about US$15,400) worth ofgold coins to non-account holders. This is less than 12 ounces of gold.

Now, if you open an account at ................... Bank, no limit applies. And, the good news is that[...] Click here to continue reading

If you have a foreign bank account, you need to know this

Here’s something that almost nobody knows about. And it’s an important topic.

If you’re a US taxpayer, you know that the Foreign Bank Account Report or FBAR is one of the numerous forms from a stack of compliance documents that the US government demands.

We’ve talked at length about it previously, not least in the June issue of SMC where we went through the form step by step. But now, filing of an[...] Click here to continue reading

President Obama caught lying on video… 36 times… no joke

Obama’s Drone War Kills 178 Children with “Surgical” Precision



As a follow up to our Facebook post earlier today (http://drones.pitchinteractive.com/), we want to share a video with you on Obama's Drone War in Pakistan and Yemen. Having denied the existence of its drone program for years, the United States government finally acknowledges it exists, but maintains that these weapons are extremely precise. According to the current administration, drone strikes did not result in a single civilian casualty in 2012; this video shows[...] Click here to continue reading

Why every free man’s arsenal should also include a good shovel



Growing your own food and potentially even owning a stake in feeding the world (or your neighborhood) is, as Simon wrote about here, possibly the smartest investment of the decade in a time of increasing demand, declining agricultural yields, and destructive political policies and subsidies worldwide.

Plus as you will hear in the below video this act of planting a garden might be one of the most subversive things you can do[...] Click here to continue reading

Is this guy crazy or a genius for literally building his freedom this way?

More and more people are breaking free from the "debtors' prison" of having a massive mortgage and hefty bills every month, and do you know what these people say? Freedom feels good! Like many of the strategies we discuss at Sovereign Man for breaking free, this example from Jay Shafer is yet another proof that you don't have to be rich to reclaim your sovereignty.

Why Obama and Putin are not the most powerful men in the world

Forbes recently released a list of the world's 10 most powerful people, but let's get this straight: The fiat "money" that is conjured out of thin air by central banks and regular banks (through fractional reserve banking) controls the economy that controls politics (and everything else).

With this knowledge in mind, does the list below seem right to you? Who on this list is really the biggest threat to your future prosperity?

US taxpayers beware: when this number reaches +50% you better be prepared (it’s at 47% now)

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano manages to pack a lot of hard facts and truth about the destructiveness of the national debt into these 203 seconds, including whose door the IRS will knock on when the time comes to pay it back...(I think you already know the answer to that question)

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled

September 24, 2012
London, England

Never try to teach a pig to sing, advised Robert Heinlein. It wastes your time and it annoys the pig. Similarly, never try to convince a central banker that his policies are destructive.

After five years of enduring crisis, market prices are no longer determined by the considered assessment of independent investors
acting rationally (if indeed they ever were), but simply by expectations of further monetary stimulus. So far, those expectations have not[...] Click here to continue reading

12 things the ultra-productive do with their mornings

Relatively speaking, night owls are a fairly new concept because before advent of the light bulb, nighttime productivity was nearly impossible.

Economist won £250,000 for THIS proposal to exit the Eurozone

As the sovereign debt crisis in Europe continues without any clear sign of recovery, the fear of a Eurozone breakup is on everyones mind.

Even the Canadian government is violating their citizens’ rights

The surpression of human rights is not a new concept and is taking place at an increasing rate worldwide. When people think about oppressive governments, Canada is definitely not the first that comes to mind. Recent student protests however, have lead the Canadian government to take a more tyrannical approach to maintaining order. CBC News reports on Canada's Bill 78 and its explicit violation of citizens' freedom of speech and right to protest:
