What R U Going 2 Do? – Part Four “Dark Star”


What R U going to do about the future?  Be flexible!

gary-scott-image

Here I am in Bristol (England) with Jake and daughter Francesca… see what coincidence meant to these two.

What will the days ahead bring to your future?  How will you deal with your upcoming future? Hopefully  your answer factors in the unknown and includes flexibility.

Part of our future is set in our dreams, ambitions, efforts and plans.

Part of our future lays in the current flow.  For example can we bet on inflation?  Of this we can be pretty sure. Should we expect more stress?  That’s likely.  Will we see longer lives?  We have every reason to think so.  Will change come faster?  You bet.  Is more material wealth in store for everyone? Probably.  Are greater distances between the rich and the not so rich to be seen. Absolutely.

We can count on these facts… kinda.

Then fate also impacts our future. This is where the need for flexibility comes in.

One way I try to remain flexible is by reading books and stories about past times that are similar to our here and now.  My economic research suggests that we are in the economic equivalent of a prewar era… like the mid 1930s and mid 1970s before WWII and the Cold War I often call WWIII.   These comparisions might just give an edge in helping us feel what’s coming next.

I have been reading again through Winston Churchill’s sixth book on history of WWII.  I also have been enjoying the Alan Furst tales.  Alan Furst writes historical spy novels set just prior to and during the Second World War.   I believe they give a feel of how people worked… acted… and economics and social order unfolded during that time.

His novel, Dark Star, is seen though the eyes of a Soviet journalist… and spy.  One quote especially caught my attention.  Fate rules our lives. One simply had to admire the hand of destiny, how it wove a life, tied desire to betrayal, ambition to envy, added idealism, love, false gods, missed trains, then pulled sharply on the threads, and behold!  There the human danced and struggled. Here, he thought was that exquisite deployment of fate known as the coincidence.

This is why… to help our readers prepare for the future and gain flexibility… we look beyond technical training.

This Banksy mural in Bristol is a good depiction of the importance of flexibility!

We offer our readers four technical courses:

They are: Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.

Tangled Web – How to Have  Web Business.

International Business Made EZ

Event – Full Business How to Have a Seminar, Course and Tour Business

Multi Currency Report – How to Develop Multi Currency Portfolios

We also promote tours that teach delegates how to earn globally, such as the Ecuador Export Tours.

Merri and I conduct three International Business and Investing Seminars each year.

However we all need something more than technical training to make us smarter… more visionary… more flexible, more adaptable to handle changes.  We’ll see these coincidental shifts that fate can throw our way.

For example some years ago, our son Jake (shown above) returned to school as a landscape designer (University of Florida in Gainesville) and ends up some years later as a trainee solicitor (attorney) in Bristol, England.   Francesca started with an NGO in Geneva but ended up working for the UN in Swaziland!  These careers were not in their comprehensive plans when they began.  Jake and Franny adapted as fate threw events at them and shifted quickly working hard on new opportunities that came by coincidence.  They have done very well from the shifts.

Our courses work on the premise that few of us end up doing exactly we originally plan.  This is why we added our Frequency Modulation Workshop and have developed several other programs so readers can learn to stretch their mind-body relationship to  “think and act beyond logic”.

The programs that help develop this beyond logic include:

Flexibility even helps our health! A January 18, 2010 Cooper Institute article entitled “New Health Benefits Cited with Good Trunk Flexibility” shows the importance of flexibility in health”.

Here are excerpts (bolds are mine): Have you ever taken the “Sit and Reach” test?  It is a basic physical fitness test given to participants of all ages to determine trunk flexibility? A good score on this test generally indicates good overall flexibility.  Good flexibility in turn is associated with improved range of motion in movement, and thought to reduce the risk of exercise related injury.

But there is new evidence that being flexible has a strong health related benefit of reducing arterial stiffness. Arterial stiffness in turn is associated with increases in blood pressure which is an increased risk for coronary (heart) artery disease and kidney failure.

To test the theory that poor trunk flexibility is associated with arterial stiffening, lead researcher, Kenta Yamamoto, with the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Ft. Worth, tested 526 adults and grouped them by age: 20-39 young; 40-59 middle age; 60-83 older.1  Arterial stiffness was assessed by the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity.  Subjects were classified as either “poor flexibility” or “high flexibility” after the sit and reach test.

Researchers tested for all three components of fitness: cardiovascular, muscular strength, and flexibility. The findings demonstrated that flexibility was an independent factor in determining risk for arterial stiffening.  Also, the results showed that age related arterial stiffness was greater in the poor flexibility subjects than the high flexibility subjects of middle age and older age.  In the young age groups there was no observed relationship of flexibility and arterial stiffness.

Further findings from this study showed a positive relationship between cardiovascular fitness and flexibility.

Whatever you plan to do… work at a job… build a business or retire… in work, in play, in exercise… build in space and flexibility for fate.

All of us are affected by the unknown. This is probably the most known and true reality we have in life.

Embrace change.

Spot Future Trends & Archives


You can see the whole message “Spot Future Trends” in the archives.

Aghhhh!  Please forgive my delayed replies this last week. My MacBookPro crashed just one day before we started our most recent Super Thinking + Spanish course. I had complete backup… but no computer to put it on.  This left me without a Powerpoint presentation and all thumbs trying to keep up with the steady onslaught of incoming email via GMail and stolen moments on Merri’s PC.  Aghhhh!

gary-scott-photo

I may look relaxed in my office but I can tell you I WAS NOT.

All this led me to spending some time at the Altamonte Springs Apple Store.  What an interesting place for investors to view.  So many ideas. So beyond…. computer.

Now I have two MacBookPros.  I’ll keep them synchronized so this never happens again.  The new computer… and Moore’s Law and watching all these so young, Apple geniuses really started me thinking about future investment trends.    My new Mac has 8 gigs of processing power… 500 gigs of memory and a high speed hard disk that chews up the graphics files I move around like the wind moves dust… all including three year service a one on one program high res, no glare screen… and a remote… $3,500.    I look back at my first fridge sized Data General Eclipse 32 bit machine.  I recall paying about $75,000 in the 1980s.  What a difference 25 or so years have made.

We can learn a lot  (not everything, but quite a bit) about investing in the future by looking in the past… so I often check back to see what I wrote and how the ideas turned out.  Talk about 3H… “Humbling”…. “Humorous” and “Honesty Evoking”.

The excerpts here are from a message posted at www.garyascott.com June 10, 2000, almost 11 years ago: I recently spoke at Jyske Bank’s international investment seminar which Merri and I always enjoy. We began at their Copenhagen headquarters in a grand old building in the center of town where they always speak a little and feed us a lot in their company dining room. Also, I am always impressed that the bankers themselves wait on tables and serve us. The building’s history gives us a bit of architectural awe and since Jyske are not normal bankers they really do work hard to entertain. 70 delegates came from all over the world, five Australians, a handful of Ecuadorians, Swiss, Germans, Danes and Swedes, two Taiwanese, Canadians, French, Austrians, one man from the Ukraine and one from Ghana, plus some more and we had a genuinely fun time as well as learned a lot.

The bank lined up a host of really good speakers including Ian Pierson, the head futurist for British Telecom spoke. He is really a bright guy!  If he is to be believed, we won’t pay for telephone calls in a decade and we’ll have computers that can almost create Star Trek style holodecks. We’ll have computerized skin of chips so small they’ll sink below the skin and connect with neural networks. We can put these on so we’ll feel and taste as well as see and hear digital experiences.

The idea is that TV and phone will drag the world into cyberspace! We will use increasingly powerful, smaller (and smarter) chips in phones and TVs. We will make them interactive with voice and gesture and the computers will even give vocal replies.

Their will be two steps that take place.   First we will move from using computers to using interactive TV and the phone. Too many people are afraid of computers because they are too user unfriendly. But everyone knows how to use the TV and phone.

Second we will shift from the typed word to voice. Not everyone can type but most of us can talk.

These voice and gesture activated devices will be powerful in assessing your needs, sorting out data available and giving you a short list of useable information. You will no longer go to the net and ask a general question which may result in thousands of possible answers. You’ll be able to ask specific, personal questions and get personal, specific answers.

This simple idea could change our entire social, economical, religious, political and economic structure. How?

One change will be the functional decomposition of companies. Many of the aspects of business that currently make companies a powerful social tool, such as human resources, information sharing, clerical, accounting, distribution, procurement, legal, sales, even R&D will be capable of being automated. Companies will simply not be needed. Computers will give the services to workers that companies previously provided.

Another change will be speed of change. In this scenario change becomes so rapid that experience becomes a liability instead of an asset! Businesses are a pool of experience commonly guided by a plan. As computers eliminate the current dynamics of time and space the inflexibility of plans will reduce the effectiveness of companies. Instead we will see highly flexible, loose knit, networks, linked by the net, that take on short term tasks.

This organizational shift will alter the dynamics of everything. Imagine the shift in political power for example. Imagine how a network of a thousand people can gain instantaneous and strong power. If each member in such a network can pass an idea to only ten people, three deep that small network can move a million people (buyers, votes, etc.) overnight. Small networks will be able to apply considerable pressure in very direct places at incredibly specific times, all at low cost.

Interactive TV and cell phones can also reverse the “Cycle of Knowledge”. For the past two hundred years this cycle has shifted from the individual as a general knower of many subjects to the individual as a specialist in just a few areas.

We can presume from this that those who are wealthiest spend the most of their time on a speciality which makes money for them.

But the vocal use of interactive, intelligent cell phones and TVs means that individuals will return to having more general knowledge. Specialists will not be so much in demand because up to date, relevant, less biased, specialized knowledge requirements will be filled on demand by computers.

So look for the cuddly home interface. This could be where the next big action is.

So, her I am Jan. 21, 2011 and I am thinking…..well, Pierson and that message really banged that nail on the head.  But how have the share prices of the cuddly interface companies played out?

Let’s take a look and see how the share price of some businesses that should have profited from these trends have played out.

How about British Telcom?  I mean they hired the guy… Pierson.  Here is the share price since the year 2000.

Brittel-share-price

So the telephone company employing Pierson didn’t do all that well in this decade of the cuddle interface.

How about Vonage the company that let’s us talk on the phone free?

Vonage-share-price

Nope, no great long term profits there.

Noika… the Finnish cell phone maker.  Are they in the race?

vonage-share-price

Evidently investors in 2000 thought Noika was the company that would excel.  They may still be thinking that and waiting. If so… I hope they had other investments as well.

Apple?  The company that started me thinking about this.  I am sure the IPod… the King of the phone cuddly interface played a big part in its recently rocketing share price, so this is the one share of a company heavily involved in the cuddly interface that has really moved up.

Noika-share-price

Why has Apple share prices shined and not the others?

One reason behond Apples success may be its lack of debt.

A recent article at www.garyascott.com “No Debt Shares” showed the share appreciation of top performing, debt free, companies. Apple was number two.

Here is an excerpt from that “No Debt” message:

no-debt-stocks

Apple has great design and a very innovative leader. Even now, as well established and successful as Apple is, Steven Jobs’ medical leave brings the company’s future into question.

Big companies like British Telcom are hard to adapt quickly.  Vonage does not have such a cuddly interface yet.  Noika, I am not sure what went wrong.

The clear message though is “just catching the next big wave is not enough!”  Every new technology offers great opportunity but venture investments do not have an obvious value profile so speculation and hence extreme discipline and diversification are required.

The key to prosperity rests in the ability to adapt to accelerating change.   This requires a new form of investment thought.

Our upcoming International Investing Made EZ and our International Business Made EZ seminars include sessions on how to use FM Thinking (Frequency Modulation) to improve investing and business choices.

We dipped into the archives, saw the comparisions and can see that to adapt to think Beyond Logic.  Our FM course is designed to help you to see bigger pictures….

Spot Future Profits


I recently spoke at Jyske Bank’s international investment seminar which Merri and I always enjoy. We began at their Copenhagen headquarters in a grand old building in the center of town where they always speak a little and feed us a lot in their company dining room. Also, I am always impressed that the bankers themselves wait on tables and serve us. The building’s history gives us a bit of architectural awe and since Jyske are not normal bankers they really do work hard to entertain. 70 delegates came from all over the world, five Australians, a handful of Ecuadorians, Swiss, Germans, Danes and Swedes, two Taiwanese, Canadians, French, Austrians, one man from the Ukraine and one from Ghana, plus some more and we had a genuinely fun time as well as learned a lot.

The bank lined up a host of really good speakers including Ian Pierson, the head futurist for British Telecom spoke. He is really a bright guy! If he is to be believed, we won’t pay for telephone calls in a decade and we’ll have computers that can almost create Star Trek style holodecks. We’ll have computerized skin of chips so small they’ll sink below the skin and connect with neural networks. We can put these on so we’ll feel and taste as well as see and hear digital experiences.

The most important part of his speech however was that computers are growing in processing capacity so quickly that soon we will have artificial intelligence and computers will be smarter than humans. His prediction is that humans will turn all the thinking stuff over to machines and spend more time being…more human.

This may sound simplistic but may be the most profound statement made at the seminar. 300 years of technology have made humanity richer than ever before. Technology in business, farming, manufacturing, transportation, war and such has evolved incredibly. Yet mankind can envision this evolution bringing itself nearer to extinction because our social technology has lagged behind. Islam and Christianity have been having a go at one another for a thousand years. The Protestants and Catholics still simmer with hate. And there is war and strife in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya, the Balkans to name a few.

Perhaps an increased focus on our humanity, our emotions, our compassion, can help overcome this shortfall. Let’s hope so.

Ian’s predictions also bode well for what we have studied about the Imagination Era at https://www.garyascott.com/archives/2001/08/29/359/ Predictions in that message are that markets for love, care, togetherness and convictions will be among the most important in the years ahead and of course wellness. This is why Merri and I have made a big investment in Natural Awakenings. For more on how this can bring you profits in your own publishing business go to https://www.garyascott.com/archives/2003/07/21/869/

This is also why you may gain from attending our Jan. 9-10-11, 2004 Florida International Business Made EZ course which has a focus on how to cash in on the Wellness Revolution through publishing and seminars. Details are at https://www.garyascott.com/courses/publishing.html

Perhaps this shift will also help us gain as we help troubled places such as Beirut. But that’s another amazing story you can read tomorrow. Until then, good investing.

The Huge 2019 Risk

Here is a huge risk that could explode in 2019.

I hope I am wrong… but the numbers are clear.

According to Treasurydirect.com, (1) as of December 27, 2018 the cost of interest on the total US public debt of $21,845,329,154,412.01.  Tht’s 23 trillion and 845 billion dollars.

This is not a theoretical problem for the future.  This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with.  This is a problem in the here and now for you and me.

Rising interest rates create a massive problem for every American.

US debt

The good news is I sent a note like this last year ad I was wrong.

Last year when I sent that note the debt was $20,467,375,664,755.32 (20 trillion+).  The debt has increased almost 1.4 trillion dollars in 2018.

This is good news and bad… the rock and the hard spot.  The bad news is that the rock (US federal debt) is getting bigger….harder to miss.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in 2010 (the debt then was a bit over 14 trillion then) that, under law at that time, debt held by the public would exceed $16 trillion by 2020, reaching nearly 70 percent of GDP.

The $5 Trillion Error.

They sure goofed on that.  Here we are… only in 2019 and debt has shot past 21 trillion.

How could the CBO be so wrong? 

The CBO screwed up because they could never imagine that the Fed would push interest rates so low… and keep them there.  The interest rates are so low that the government has been able to borrow more than imagined and still afford the interest.

For example, US Federal government interest last year amounted to around $483 billion on the 20 trillion of debt.  Yet in 2008 on debt of only $9,229,172,659,218.31 (9 trillion +) the interest that year was $451,154,049,950.63 (451 billion +).

Interest payments in 2017 were 7% higher than they were in 2008.  Yet the debt is over 100% higher.  

Very low interest rates have helped the government borrow.  Low interest has also helped the US stocks reach all time high prices.

Now US dollar interest rates are rising.  In 2018 the interest costs were 8.2% higher than in 2017.   Yet the debt increase was only 6.7%.

The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.

Here is the very hard spot.  

Rising interest rates, will create an almost unimaginable debt crisis.  If government interest goes to 6% it is like the $20+ trillion national debt  rising to 40 trillion!  Unless there are some huge tax increase the interest payments are not sustainable.

A tax increase?  Last year’s tax act reduced, not increased, revenue.

Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit in your savings despite America’s deficits, debt and currency risk.

Fortunately there are secrets that will allow a few to live much better, free of debt and worry despite the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power.   My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.

Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2018.

The first fact behind this secret is that things are really good in the western world.  Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has ever enjoyed, anywhere, ever.   To enjoy a fair share of this wealth, all we have to do is understand human nature and learn how to invest in the new economy, as it changes and becomes new, again and again.

Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years.  Each has allowed us to always stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer.  We are in another transition right now and want to share why and what to do so you can stay ahead and live a richer, independent life through 2019 and beyond.

A falling US dollar is one of the greatest risks we have to our independence, safety, health, and wealth, but also brings a window of huge profit as I explain below.   Though the greenback has been strong for a number of years, its strength is in serious jeopardy.  The growing federal deficits increase the national debt and this with rising interest rates propels a growing debt service.

While the Dow Jones Industrial Average passed 25,000, the U.S. national debt passed the $20 trillion mark.

The problem is that the Dow will come back down.  National debt will not fall.

The double shock of money fleeing Wall Street and US debt skyrocketing, will destroy the purchasing power of the greenback.

Go to the store even now.  Statistics say inflation is low, but buy some bread or, heaven forbid, some fresh vegetables like peppers or fruit.   Look at the cost of your prescription or hospital bills.  Do something simple like have your car serviced at an auto dealer.  Look at the dollars you spend and you’ll see what I mean.

The loss of the dollar’s purchasing power erodes our independence, our freedom and our savings and wealth as well. 

At the same time, low interest rates by big banks and higher health care costs soak up the ever diminishing income and savings we have left.  According to a Gallup poll, the most unpopular three institutions in America are big corporations & Wall Street banks, HMOs and Congress.

Yet there is little we can do because these institutions are in control.

Over the last 50 years the average income for 90 percent of the American population fell.  Our health system is restricted by a Kafka-esque maze of legislation and insurance regulations that delay, frustrate, and thwart attempts by patients and doctors from proper medical care.  Big banks and corporations restrict our freedom of choice.  The business customer relationships are no longer transactions between free equals.

Banks can trap us in indebtedness at every age from student loans to mortgages to health care costs.  They pay almost nothing on our savings.  They hide unexpected fees and payments in complex and unreadable documents.  Banks and big corporations routinely conceal vital information in small print and then cheat.  Weak regulations and lax enforcement leave consumers with few ways to fight back.  Many of these businesses ranging from cable TV to phone and internet service to health insurance have virtual monopolies that along with deceptive marketing destroys any form of free market.

These same companies control the credit-scoring agencies so if  we don’t pay unfair fees, our credit scores will plunge and we could lose the ability to borrow money, rent an apartment, even to get a job.  Many consumers are forced to accept “arbitration clauses” in lieu of  legal rights.  The alternative is to lose banking, power, and communication services.

Big business has also usurped our privacy.  Internet companies sell our personal data.  Personal information is pulled from WiFi and iPhones track and store our movements.  The government can access this information, sometimes without subpoenas.  There’s a lot that we don’t know, often withheld under the guise of “National Security.”

The glow on Western democratic capitalism has dimmed… or so it seems.  The US, leading the way, is still a superpower with economic, innovation and military might, but the institutions that should serve the people have become flawed or broken.

America’s infrastructure is in shambles.  The nation’s bridges are crumbling, many water systems are filled with toxins, yet instead of spending more to fix this, we build more prisons.  The 2.2 million people currently in  jail is a 500 percent increase over the past thirty years.  60% of the inmates belong to ethnic groups.  Not just non-white ethnic groups are suffering.  Annual death rates are falling for every group except for middle-aged white Americans.  Death rates are rising among this group driven by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse, alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.

America’s middle class is shrinking.  Nearly  half of America’s income goes to upper-income households now.  In 1970 only 29 percent went to this group.  How can we regain our freedom, our happiness and our well being in such a world?

What can we do?

Gain a better, freer life is to combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle. 

Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles.  Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:

#1:  Global micro business income.

#2:  Low cost, natural health.

#3:  Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead

Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits.  They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.

28 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits.   The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.

Join us for all of 2019 NOW.

The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together.  Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life.  There is little we can do to change this big picture.  However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.

We start with better lower cost health care.

Club membership begins by sharing ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”.   Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”.  Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen.  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health.  One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital can be worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is why charge masters are so often secret.  There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.

I have created three natural health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.

Club members also receive seven workshops and courses on how earn everywhere with at home micro businesses.  We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”.   The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free. These courses and reports are:

  • “International Business Made EZ”
  • “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
  • The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
  • The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
  • Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free.  You save $299 more.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio.  There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

There are seven layers of tactics in the Pi strategy.

Pi Tactic #1: Determine purpose and good value.

Pi Tactic #2: Diversify 70% to 80% of portfolio equally in good value developed markets.

Pi Tactic #3: Invest 20% to 30% equally in good value emerging markets.

Pi Tactic  #4:  Use trending algorithms to buy sell or hold these markets.

Pi Tactic  #5:  Add spice speculating with ideal conditions.

Pi Tactic  #6: Add spice speculating with leverage.

Pi Tactic  #7:  Add spice speculating with forex potential.

The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:

#1:  Current book to price

#2:  Cash flow to price

#3:  Earnings to price

#4:  Average dividend yield

#5:  Return on equity

#6:  Cash flow return

#7:  Market history

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

The Pi subscription is normally $99 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $99.

Profit from the US dollar’s fall.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Club members receive a report about opportunity in the  current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Platinum Dip 2019” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

Now there is a new distortion ready to ripen in the year ahead.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Platinum Dip 2019”.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged precious metal speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Platinum Dip 2018” offers enormous profit potential in 2018.

The report “Platinum Dip 2019” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.

There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.

There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier.  Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”.

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes them special.  Discover seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar places of opportunity.

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not!)

The report is very specific because it describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning locally and globally.
