5,000 Self Publishing Steps


5,000 self publishing steps started in the late 1990s.   We sold our print publishing business.  We sold our 7,000 square foot, nine bedroom house in Naples Florida.  We bought an abandoned 200+ acre farm in North Carolina and moved into this tent.

We started our www.garyascott.com website.

This site passed a milestone in early 2o16, when our 5,000th free article appeared.  This is the 5,037th.  Every once in awhile I look back to see if the thoughts we have shared in the past were headed in the right direction and to find out if ideas that applied decades ago, still applies now.

Here is an excerpt from one of the first messages posted at this site almost 20 years ago. See if you feel that these ideas can still help make your life better.

Inspired Investing-More PIEC.

This year I have written often about the incredible financial power of having your own business in this era. This advice is based on the principles outlined by Austrian economist, Joseph Schumpeter, on how innovation creates industrial revolutions that alter the way we live, work and earn and keep money. We reviewed five great economic eras that began in the late 1700s:

ERA #1: 1785-1845-fueled by water power-60 years. Textiles and iron works were the backbone of growth industries.
ERA #2: 1845-1900-fueled by steam-55 years. Railways and steel provided the main growth in this era.
ERA #3: 1900-1950-fueled by the internal engine-50 years. Electricity and chemicals provided the major growth.
ERA #4: 1950-1990-fueled by electronics-40 years. Petrochemicals and aviation were the innovations which became mainstream in this period.
ERA #5: 1990-current-fueled by digital networks- 30 years+ ? Software and new media create the growth elements in this era.

The innovation that has led us to this current era allows us to increase our wealth and fulfillment in life at the same time by developing a Primary Income Earning Capacity, (PIEC). PIECS allow us to make money and feel better by looking within to find ways of turning our passions into wealth.
All of this innovation means we are in a continual state of turmoil and change. We have to work harder and look deeper to keep up, but the world is open to anyone who wishes to have riches beyond belief. The wealthiest billionaires of today were unknown just a decade or two ago. They have made incredible wealth in industries that have only existed for a few years.

This innovation empowers the individual!  Today we have faster and faster computers, the Internet, the information access. All this allows you, me, anyone to be incredibly efficient, anywhere in the world! All this allows us to identify and reach markets very easily.

Everything is about to change yet again.  The billionaires of today are likely to be the has beens of tomorrow and this is happening sooner than anyone can imagine. Never before has an old boys’ network been overturned so fast. The railway and oil magnates of the first and second era dominated the world’s wealth for centuries. Electronics, car and airline multimillionaires lasted perhaps 50 years. The Internet and communications wealth will be overshadowed in as little as a decade.

Add this all up.  Change.  Access to markets and information.  Ability to plan, organize and sell.  Anyone can take advantage of these opportunities and use them in small or large ways.

The beautiful thing is we can take advantage of this era to make money and avoid great dangers at the same time!

Opportunity Equals Danger.  Avoiding the danger is important because each era of change not only brings new benefits but brings new dangers as well.

Today, speed of light information technology creates a huge threat to our wealth.

Not keeping up today is a big risk.  Innovation builds new ways of life and in the process is destructive to the old. T raditionally accepted ways of working, investing and saving are not working as well as they did if at all.  The Internet is making many, many businesses obsolete.

For example, take my business of publishing.  The old ways of just printing a monthly newsletter no longer makes sense.  Too much data is too readily available over the Internet. The timing of a monthly publication becomes too slow.  There is still a market for newsletters to be sure, but enough of the market has gone or is going electronic that the printed newsletter market is a diminishing one.

Remember whatever you do, try not to have a business that grabs an ever increasing share of an ever diminishing market.  (Think about the remaining buggy-whip manufacturer, if you don’t understand what this means).  Jack Welsh, the president of General Electric (a well managed organization that grew out of Era #3 summed this up when he explained the following: When the internal rate of change in a business is slower than the outside rate of change, the end of the business is in sight.

The answer of course is to embrace the change and let your business evolve. This is true whether your business is one that you personally manage or is one in which your participation is as an investor.

I continue to hammer away on the idea of following your passions because I have been so lucky doing so.  Over the years I always seem to be in exactly the right place at the right time, again and again.  Without ever recognizing what I was doing I was stumbling through the process of keeping up without giving it any thought.  I have always accomplished this by following areas that interested me personally.  This allowed me to take advantage of what I call the Golden Rule of Simplicity which is to do what we love by learning to market from the heart.  This puts us in touch with millions of others just like us!  If we get in touch with our hearts, we are looking into the hearts of an entire market who feel and desire as we do. This is so simple yet it allows us to have the most finely tuned market research in existence.

Dream Solution I recently discovered a line of thought that can help us better focus or define how to use the rule of simplicity.  I was speaking at a conference with the head of a think tank in Denmark, who gave a speech entitled the “Dream Society-How to Spot Upcoming Trends”.  This gentlemen gave seven points that will affect markets in the current era.

* Trend #1: The rate of change will increase. This is self evident.

* Trend #2: The rate of private consumption will grow.  From 1884 to 1995 private consumption just about doubled, but increased 25% in the past ten years. This means that the amount of money spent per person will continue to grow. This also means that the amount of discretionary income per person is growing.  This also means by the way that society will have to continue to embrace technology. The only way to increase private consumption is through the generation of more output with less input. In other words, productivity has to grow before private consumption can grow.  Improved productivity is normally gained through the use of new technology.

There is a second part to this second trend.  Though private consumption will grow, less material goods will be purchased.

The growing trend is for the purchase of immaterial goods, such as sports, entertainment, health, communication and spirituality .

He pointed out Maslow’s Need Hierarchy which is: Physical – Security – Social Needs – Acknowledgement – Self-Realization.

In western society we now pretty much take the perfection of physical and security needs for granted. If we buy a new car. we expect it to run and to run pretty much perfectly. This is true of most consumer products, so we don’t choose one car over another for that material quality. We instead buy cars which fill social needs (for example, a mini van for our large family) or for acknowledgement such as an expensive sports car which has very little utility or a large sports utility vehicle with more utility than most of us need.

The key to understanding these facts is that the higher people move up the hierarchy, the more they will pay for the satisfaction of their needs.  Pound for pound, a Chevy Caprice is a lot more car for the dollar than a top line Porsche (the owner of the Porsche has to risk life and driver’s license to even use the performance feature).  It is the implied power, the acknowledgement that the Porsche owner is paying all the extra thousands for.

* Trend #3: There will be more automation. In the process of automation, mankind works through another type of hierarchy to supplement muscles first, brains second and feelings third.  This fits Maslov’s Law of Needs explaining why tractors and forklifts were invented long before computers.
This knowledge can help us see why the future for mood altering equipment, machines and drugs will grow. As automation takes over all of the physical jobs we have to do, then we’ll start looking for ways to automate our emotions as well.  This speaks well for the entertainment industry and explains why people get so caught up in sports for example.

Here humanity throws in another interesting twist because the more we perfect automation in an area, the more retro we become. Once we perfected central heating there was an explosion in demand for fireplaces.  This explains why, in the United States which has perfected its road systems and has such large urban areas that almost no one needs to venture into the country, the fastest growing segment in the auto industry is the four wheel drive sports-utility vehicle.

* Trend #4: Age, sex and wealth are becoming increasingly irrelevant.  Society is going through a great convergence which explains the end of segregation and the advancement of basic human rights.  This is why U.S. armies (or NATO’s armies acting at America’s bequest) are now allowed to invade so many places. It has always been politically okay to invade the space of another nation if it is in the name of a “good cause”.  The end of discrimination is causing the description of “good causes” to dramatically narrow.  This also dramatically alters markets. Look at the ads for the vitamins called Centrum Silver which show a mature couple in some form of physical activity.  The slogan of the manufacturer is “It’s a good time to be silver”. Look at how adults buy items that used to be for the kids, such as bicycles. The subject of bicycles leads us to the next trend:

* Trend #5: There will be a shift of attitude from our brain to heart.  Once mankind has taken care of its basic physical needs, it will revolt against the tyranny of reason. Function (such as the well running car) is taken for granted. Now there is a m arket for stories not products.  One example,used was that in  Denmark the highest point of land in the country was not over a few hundred feet. Yet guess what the best selling bicycles in the country are? Mountain bikes, of course.  Look at the strong markets: for belonging, love, togetherness, identity, adventure, anchored values, conviction and caring, not products. Housing was another example he used.  More and more people demand having huge family style dining rooms while eating out grows enormously. This fact has very much to do with the next trend.

* Trend #6: Families will turn more and more of their responsibilities to the market place. Cooking and eating out were one of the first signs of this trend.  Then came the giving up of entertainment (how often do you stay home and play games with the kids).  Look at the growth in businesses for child upbringing and care of the elderly.  See how our health and financial care are become given over, more and more, to the insurance companies, HMOs and other such businesses.  Even the emotions of our kids, (including the huge growth in sales of prescription drugs) are being serviced by business now.  Parents are more likely than ever before to call in a party entertainer for the birthday of the kids. Weddings are more and more organized by wedding planners than ever before.  Where we live up here on the farm in the mountains when someone passes, their loved ones go out to the family cemetery, dig the grave and bury their own.  This used to happen all over the country.  When was the last time you attended such a funeral? Now all of these ceremonies are dealt with by business.

* Trend #7: The growth in markets will be for stories, not products.  One example given was for selling eggs. He explained how the typical, not tuned in farmer can sell an egg for 10 cents in Denmark.  The product has become commoditized.  This is an important clue.  You do not want to be in a market where the product becomes commoditized.  The only way to compete in such markets is through lowering price.  This usually requires a reduction of profits or a huge infusion of cash.

Then he went on to explain how some smart farmers had caught on and started offering free range eggs.  Now they were not selling eggs.  They were selling a story of health. This is still just an egg but now it can sell for twenty cents!

But the really smart farmers have taken it a step further.  They allow families to come to the farm, enjoy the fresh outdoors and work as a family collecting the free range eggs.  Still the same egg but the story is different, health, togetherness, anchored values.  These eggs sell for thirty cents!  The

Power of the Heart

The egg example was inspiring to me because I was wondering why we had just set up a flock of Cornish hens (for the eggs) high in the Andes mountains where Merri and I had purchased a plantation.  This is the power behind the Golden Rule of Simplicity.
But how do we get in touch with ourselves to use this enormously powerful law?

Understanding and being able to follow our intuition can be enormously difficult, but an anonymous 14th century Samurai warrior gives us a clue how to do this. This Warrior’s Creed explains what to do better than I could, so I’d like to share it here with you.

A WARRIOR’S CREED I have no parents: I make the heavens and earth my parents.

I have no home:  I make awareness my home.

I have no life or death: I make the tides of breathing my life and death.

I have no divine power: I make honesty my divine power.

I have no means: I make understanding my means.

I have no magic secrets: I make character my magic secret.

I have no body: I make endurance my body.  I have no eyes: I make the flash of lightning my eyes.  I have no ears: I make sensibility my ears.  I have no limbs:  I make promptness my limbs.

I have no strategy: I make unshadowed by thought my strategy.

I have no designs: I make seizing opportunity by the forelock my design.

I have no miracles: I make right action my miracles.

I have no principles: I make adaptability to all circumstances my principles.

I have no tactics: I make emptiness and fullness my tactics.

I have no talents: I make readiness my talent.

I have no friends: I make my mind my friend.

I have no enemy: I make carelessness my enemy.

I have no armor: I make benevolence and righteousness my armor.

I have no castle: I make immovable mind my castle.

I have no sword: I make absence of self my sword.

Whether we are investors or business people, we are commercial warriors. Despite industrial eras, technology, innovation and all the miracles of our modern world, the true nature of life, commerce and business has not altered one bit.  Run your business or invest with this wisdom and you will not be able to fail.

How Ecuador Living Led to Super Thinking


While living and working with Ecuador shamans for over a decade, we learned ways to combine modern ideas with ancient wisdom for everlasting wealth, better health, less stress and a lifestyle that is fulfilled. During our years in the Andes, along Ecuador’s Pacific coast and Amazon, we helped thousands of readers explore and invest in this amazing country. We also met some very special men who were from long lineages of healers. They received such intensive training they became Taita Yatchaks, Father of Fathers-healers of great purity.

Gary Scott

Gary & Merri Scott (with their hound Mah) in the Andes

A 500 year old Andean prophesy urges us to use the connection between the heart and the brain to restore the equilibrium of mankind.

How our role in Ecuador Living and Super Thinking began.

Ecuador, around 1997.   A bite of chilled wind swept the broad Andean marsh where diamond sunrays sparkled and danced on a frying pan lake below. Damp odors of ooze, mud and grass were mixed in harmony to the taste of my blood, my senses concocting strange mixtures in the altitude-thinned air.

High on a mountain slope overlooking the Llanganatis Valley, the sun filled the Amazonian Valley below.  Who was to know that the discovery of one of South America’s most ancient secrets for vitality and good health lay just ahead?  Breathing heavily in the 14,000’ rarified air, we rethought how this trip has evolved.  My wife, Merri, and I, along with two medical doctors (who specialize in anti aging) and friends, walked toward a sacred valley where western man had never been invited before.

This was an unusual beginning for a couple who had devoted their efforts to the hard facts of making money with international business and investing.  46 years ago I began a business, speaking and writing about international investing.  This led me (and later my wife Merri) from helping readers find and invest in real estate and other investments in Hong Kong, to London, to the Isle of Man, then the Dominican Republic and finally in the mid 1990s to Ecuador.

We became involved in creating a foundation to help the indigenous of Ecuador and because of this the Taita Yatchaks asked us to help them fulfill a task to bring secrets from the South to the North and to bring important knowledge from the North to the South.  The Yatchaks told us there was a 500 year old prophesy that states when the Eagle of the North and the Condor of the South flew in the skies together, a greater equilibrium would exist for mankind.  People of the north live too much in their brain. People of the equator live too much with their hearts.  When we integrate our intuition and our logic we become wiser, more intellgient and take on expanded horizons. The quest of the yatchaks is to help accelerate the evolution of man’s intellect.  They asked if we could help fulfill this prophesy.

To be part of a prophesy unveiled five hundred years ago is humbling at the least.  Scary is probably a better word.  Yet we felt compelled to accept and so with several friends, we started helping these healers meet people from the North, not knowing the best was yet to come.

The Yatchaks explained there was a sacred preserved valley where no man was allowed to live and where no westerner or outsider had ever been invited.  The Yatchaks were protectors and kept it carefully guarded.  Part of their prophesy was when the time was right they would take a westerner to open secrets from this valley to the rest of the world.  We were told that our efforts to help them were signals that we should go into the valley.

We had no idea then how special this valley was.  Only later did we learn that even in colonial times the Spanish knew of it and believed that the valley contained the fountain of youth.  The valley is considered to be a spiritual rejuvenation.  This valley was also said to contain a hidden treasure of the assassinated Incan emperor, Atahaulpa.  The Spanish had tried to find this valley but the natives would not reveal its location. Hundreds accepted enslavement, torture and even death, rather than disclose its secrets.

This was to be the first time these protectors had ever taken an outsider into the valley.  We did not know this when Merri and I arrived with several friends including Dr. Jay Glaser and his wife Danielle and another medical doctor who also was studying longevity.  This was a good thing because our arrival was with a sense of foreboding. We felt almost frightened rather than thrilled.

Several villages held a special meeting of the protectors to perform a rite of permission.

Only then did we discover that even native Ecuadorians had never been allowed to know the location of this valley.  Only the healers and spiritual leaders of the Andes went there.

The other M.D. researching longevity traveled with us but rather than visit the valley visited another valley where there are healing thermal pools. While there he told the owner of the hotel where we were going and was told we would never ever be seen again alive! The owner told our friend he (as a young man) had once tried sneaking into the valley, had been caught, stripped naked, hogtied and dumped on a lonely road. The man’s effects had all been dumped in a bundle at the hotel with a note saying where to find him with a warning of the dire consequences to anyone who tried to go in the valley.

Merri, Danielle, Jay and I didn’t know this as we headed into the valley.

We started our journey at 4:30 a.m. riding up into the mountains to a hiking point with six llamas that carried our food, two young boys to herd the llamas, a cook, the Taita Yatchak and his son and daughter.

We began hiking at about 10,500 feet, tramping through deep Alpine marsh for six hours as we ascended to 14,000 feet. Here we drank from a spring that formed part of the head waters of the Amazon Basin and then descended straight down (4,000′) on a hidden mud animal trail for three hours into a virtually impenetrable cloud forest, ripped by thorns, cut by razor grass, soaked, and caked in mud.

Here we are after the day’s hike at the lip of the valley,

Then we moved down into a dense jungle. Here is Merri and me in the thick of it with the Taita Yatchak.

By the time we arrived in the valley, it was just minutes before dark. We were fatigued more than I can describe, by the high altitude, bone weary from our heavy packs, every muscle aching from fighting all day, in the altitude thinned air, the sucking mud (which had regularly pulled off our boots).

We stayed in a floorless, leaky thatch hut, sleeping on dirt, no heat except the cooking fire, no running water, nothing. We were continually cold, wet, dirty and cramped-all 12 of us in this tiny hut with its earthen floor. The next morning, to our surprise we all felt wonderful!   We had no aches, no pains and each of us looked glowing and wonderful.

Here is the group!

ecuadorliving home page

We explored the valley which is perpetually wrapped in mist and fog.  We swam in small icy, deep blue lagoons and did ancient exercises while the Taita Yatchak talked with us about longevity and health.

None of us had ever had so much fun!  There is something about the valley that one cannot explain, an abounding energy and peacefulness.  Even at times when we were really worried about some of the party who had gone into shock from fatigue, there was never a moment of regret.

We discovered a magical quality to this Sacred Valley and after our return found powerful emotional and physical evolutions happening to all of us.  Merri and I, along with the others, felt physically stronger, more alert, more positive, more active and yet more serene than ever before in our lives.

This feeling of well-being was physical as well as emotional.  We found that though our stay had been short we lost weight, increased muscle mass and were stronger, more balanced and our bodies and mental state felt better in almost every way.

This is the magic of the Andes.  Yes, there is opportunity in low cost living, property, business, import and export.  The weather is glorious and the people sweet.   Blend them all together in a tangle of Incan history and beyond.  These are all small parts of the magic of Ecuador, but the real magic is merging the spirit of the condor, the most powerful intelligence we have, our intuition, with our logic.

Merri and I conducted dozens of Ecuador shamanic tours.

ecuador-beach-real-estate

We conducted hundreds of Ecuador real estate tour.

When the heart and brain work together we  gain the magical quality called Ecuador Living.

We brought thousands of readers to the Andes and we brought yatchaks to the USA.  Now we share the experiences gained from our 46 years of global business and investing merged with the wisdom of the Andes.

Here we are with an Ecuador Yatchak conducting a purifying ceremony at our North Carolina Farm.

Use Ecuador Living and Super Thinking to live better in this era of cynicism.

Ecuador Living creates Super Thinking. A lifestyle that unites the mind and the heart, whatever you wish to put a name to, is the process of uniting the logic and intuition so you can take action.  We look forward to using what we have learned so far about action through Super Thinking, learning more and sharing what we learn with you.

European Bank Boost


There is a European bank boost coming up next January that adds one more positive layer to my gamble on the Euro financial sector.

Leslie Share International Business & Tax attorney.

One of the tax and international legal advisers I have used for at least 30 years is Leslie Share in Miami.  Leslie sent this note to me after we published an article about the 8938 tax filing form.

Hi Gary—if the 8938 isn’t the straw that breaks the camel’s back—maybe the attached as discussed below will be it. Some think it will cause many foreign investors to empty their US accounts and move their money elsewhere—not good for our economy!  Best regards.  Les Share

Leslie sent this memorandum from the 4/18/12 Daily Tax Report (BNA)

Information Reporting

IRS Unveils Final Rules Requiring Reporting Of Bank Interest Paid to Nonresident Aliens

BNA Snapshot

Key Development: IRS unveils final rules (T.D. 9584) and a revenue procedure (Rev. Proc. 2012-24) requiring domestic banks to report deposit interest paid to nonresident aliens.

Potential Impact: The rules apply to the U.S. accounts of nonresident aliens from countries with which the United States has an information exchange agreement.

Next Steps: The guidance is effective April 19, 2012, but applies to payments of interest made on or after Jan. 1, 2013.Banks will have to report deposit interest paid to nonresident aliens as a way to help the United States combat tax evasion through its ability to reciprocate tax information shared by other countries, the Internal Revenue Service said in final rules (T.D. 9584) unveiled April 17.

For the first time, the agency specifically said the information would help the U.S. government in reciprocating information gleaned on U.S. accounts in foreign banks under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).

IRS slightly tailored the controversial rules (REG-146097-09) it proposed in January 2011 (5 DTR G-2, 1/7/11) by requiring the reporting only for nonresident aliens from countries with formal exchange information agreements with the United States.

The requirements apply only for pacts in which the United States has agreed to provide, as well as receive, information and under which the competent authority is the secretary of the Treasury or his delegate.

IRS Stresses Safeguards

IRS stressed that a variety of safeguards for the information need to be in place in the foreign jurisdiction before it will be exchanged.

The agency also issued Revenue Procedure 2012-24, with a list of 80 countries and territories where the reporting requirements would apply for nonresident aliens with accounts in the United States.

In the preamble to the final rules, IRS said, “The reporting required by these regulations is essential to the U.S. government’s efforts to combat offshore tax evasion for several reasons.”
First, the agency said, it allows IRS to exchange information with other jurisdictions on tax enforcement—information that the United States needs to identify and stop evasion. The effectiveness of U.S. agreements to get such information, such as treaties and other pacts, depends on the ability of the United States to reciprocate, IRS said.

FATCA Implementation Key Focus

Specifically, IRS said, the government needs to be able to reciprocate information it receives under FATCA, which requires foreign banks to report U.S.-owned accounts to U.S. tax authorities or face, in some cases, a 30 percent withholding tax.

In February, the U.S. government unveiled not only nearly 400 pages of proposed rules (REG-121647-10) under FATCA (26 DTR GG-1, 2/9/12), but a joint statement by the United States and five other countries—France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom—outlining a framework for government-to-government information sharing agreements under the law (26 DTR GG-3, 2/9/12).

In the April 17 final rules on nonresident alien interest reporting, IRS said that in many cases, the implementation of FATCA will require the cooperation of foreign governments to overcome legal impediments to reporting by their resident financial institutions.

“These regulations will facilitate intergovernmental cooperation on FATCA implementation by better enabling the IRS, in appropriate circumstances, to reciprocate by exchanging information with foreign governments for tax administration purposes,” IRS said in the preamble to the final rules.

IRS Addresses Criticisms of Proposed Rules

The proposed rules on nonresident alien interest reporting touched off a fire storm of criticism from banks who said nonresidents would take their accounts elsewhere, and from lawmakers in jurisdictions such as Florida and Texas with high concentrations of foreign-held accounts.

In the preamble to the final rules, IRS said concerns raised in comments “are addressed by existing legal limitations and administrative safeguards governing tax information exchange,” including strict confidentiality rules under tax code Section 6103.

The agency stressed that, “consistent with established international standards, all of the information exchange agreements to which the United States is a party require that the information exchanged under the agreement be treated and protected as secret by the foreign government.”

IRS said it made the decision to tailor the rules to jurisdictions with information exchange agreements as a result of the concerns expressed by commenters.

Here is the potential bonus for European banks.   The US has been one of the greatest tax havens in the world for non Americans. Essentially US bank accounts for non resident non Americans have been private and tax free.   The enforcement of this end of the FATCA regulations means that US banks will have to report interest earnings.   This also means than many aliens may pull their funds from the USA and place them elsewhere.

European banks could benefit from this shift of funds.

I am betting that the euro and Europe will survive and have been speculating by increasing the weighting of my portfolio in the Euro and especially the European financial sector.

This new US tax regulation against non resident aliens may be a European bank boost that helps my portfolio.
