Update on Puerto Rico

Update on Puerto Rico

Hello, and welcome to The Bauman Letter Weekly. Unsurprisingly, I received a lot of feedback about Puerto Rico this week. Let’s consider a pair of the more common questions.

The Last Word on Health Care

The Last Word on Health Care

Welcome back to The Bauman Letter Weekly. Last week I shared some of the responses I got to my Sovereign Investor Daily article on health care. As I reported then, about half of respondents favored some sort of government-funded — if not government-provided — health care system. I found that quite remarkable, since our politicians like to say that “the American people” don’t want that at all.

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

It’s a foggy morning here on the banks of the Rappahannock River. I’m up early to write, as always. My customarily strong coffee is brewing downstairs — an aroma strong enough to awaken my daughter, who just ran into my mom’s study asking about the gunshots she just heard (duck hunters, sweetie). There are four […]

It’s Not for Everyone

It’s Not for Everyone

Two weeks ago, I replied to a reader who challenged me about neglecting Africa as a potential place to live or acquire property. I asked whether you would consider Africa, either for living or investing, and why or why not. Unsurprisingly, there wasn’t much support for the idea. Here are some of the replies, and […]

This holiday season, I’m thankful … for you. You may have noticed, by reading between the lines of what I write, that I’m not a particularly sentimental guy. I like to look the world square in the eye and focus on what’s really going on. I like a holiday break as much as anyone, but […]

Of course, asset protection and personal sovereignty […]

Welcome to Sovereign Confidential Weekly, where I paraphrase and reply to your questions.
