This is one of my favorite podcasts. I was upset as I thought Simon was not doing them anymore. Luckily, I saw one finally come in. These podcasts are a great listen. Please don’t wait another 3 months!!

I've been a subscriber of Sovereign Man since 2009 and Simon Black's clear sighted, passionate and straight talking advice and info is such a breath of fresh air from the misinformation and ignorance of mainstream media. It amazes me how 'sheep-like' most people are and it pains me the vast majority of the population are sitting ducks. I've seen his popularity grow which is an excellent sign that at least some folks are waking up. You won't regret giving these a listen.

The Sovereign Man has been a weekly sermon on liberty and responsibility. The freedom movement has a few good voices, but Simon Black is our preacher. Amen. ;)

Simon makes a lot of thought-provoking commentary and provides actionable information on diversification outside the U.S. Solid stuff.

Of all the free market oriented podcasts I have heard, I learn the most from this one, from Simon Black. He knows Austrian Economics, he knows History, he knows whats happening politically, and how to place it in context. The guy knows his stuff. Listening to this podcast is an education. Highly recommended.

This type of valuable information you dont come accross in every day business podcasts. I like how author is able to explain the subject in easy to understand manner with relative historical references. It's kinda scary with what we are faced with as US citizens but at least we have people like Simon who are not afraid to speak up and help others.

Many of the messages the Sovereign Man delivers at first glance appear to be paranoid sensationalism but when you listen more carefully they are generally coming from people with credibility and based on research and data that is qualified. Most of us have a feeling deep down that teh financial system is deeply fractured and things are worse than everyone tells us, these podcasts might put a little meat on the bones of those gut feelings.

I have been a fan of Simon Black for a while. On finding out about the podcasts, I had to check them out myself. I was not disappointed. He always delivers good information which is dependable. He delivered the goods again.

The reason why ICOs have been going through the roof…

First it was Pets.com, and all the unbelievably stupid Internet businesses in the 1990s.

Investors were so eager to buy dot-com stocks, all you had to do was put an “e” in front of your business or product and you’d immediately be worth millions.

It didn’t matter that most of these companies didn’t[...]

Despite the new ‘plan’, this is -still- a no-brainer tax strategy

Yesterday I recorded a new podcast with my US-based tax attorney to talk about the Trump administration’s new tax plan... or as I like to call it, the plan to have a plan.

Unbelievable facts from the US government's own financial reports

Yesterday I told you that the US government had recently released its annual financial report to the public.

And the numbers are pretty gruesome.

For example, the government’s “net loss” in fiscal year 2016 more than doubled, from MINUS $467 billion to MINUS $1 trillion.

It’s astonishing that anyone could manage to[...]
