Stepping out of the airport after my nine-hour flight, I took a deep breath and smiled. It was like coming home.
I never expected another country to feel quite so familiar, relaxing and inviting.
I also couldn’t get much farther from my rolling, green Kentucky hills than standing in Montevideo, Uruguay. But this country is really starting to feel like home, and the timing couldn’t be better.
The United States is balanced on a precipice as we face another presidential election that has the potential to chart a new, darker course for our country, as well as mounting debt and a Fed that is bandying about ludicrous ideas such as negative interest rates.
America is heading into uncharted territory and it’s time that we start doing some out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to protecting our assets and our freedom. It’s never been a better time to be in Uruguay…
I arrived in Uruguay a day early to get reacquainted with Punta del Este and to help prep for the Offshore Investment Summit. Jeff Opdyke, who has made many trips to Uruguay over the years, played tour guide, showing me around the area surrounding Punta del Este, with its amazing beaches, quaint shops and simply amazing restaurants. (If you were wondering, Jeff did finally pay up and get me a Chivito sandwich, which he has been taunting me with for at least two years. It was worth the wait!)
Back at the Conrad Hotel, there’s a buzz in the air. I’ve spotted a few attendees as they checked into the hotel, as well as some of our speakers. Everyone is anxious for the Summit to start, but after traveling through the night, there’s a hopefulness here that hasn’t been at play while in the States. At the Offshore Investment Summit, attendees will get the answers they need to take control of their future — whether that’s diversifying their assets or developing a Plan B, in case they should choose to leave the U.S., or all of the above.
And it’s time to start working on those changes now…
Are We Facing the Collapse of America?
The United States is facing some tough times and some even tougher decisions in the near future.
First, we are dealing with a recovery that hasn’t taken off how the Fed planned when it slashed rates to nearly zero and held them there for years. And while Yellen managed to lift interest rates at the end of 2015, it was too soon … the Fed is now stress-testing for negative interest rates.
The implementation of negative interest rates within the United States threatens to create a topsy-turvy world in which the borrower is rewarded and the saver penalized. It’s an act of desperation, and it’s unlikely to save our economy.
Second, the government’s attacks on our privacy and liberties are growing fiercer, and too few people are raising alarms. In fact, we’re dealing with a government that is sliding new laws into massive bills so that they pass without the public’s knowledge.
And finally, we’re looking at a rough election. The presidential candidates have handily avoided topics such as how they plan to tackle our mounting debt problem, while attacking the basic rights that define America.
Our country is changing before our eyes, and it’s time that we take steps to protect our assets, our families and our freedoms. That’s why we’ve come to Uruguay.
A New Plan of Action
The Offshore Investment Summit kicks off this afternoon with Ted Bauman delivering the opening remarks. We will also hear from Juan Federico Fischer about what makes Uruguay the “Country of the Year,” and Jeff Opdyke will discuss how central banks have failed us and provide the key to protecting your wealth.
Over the next several days I will be covering the panels, as well as tagging along for the farmland and real estate tours, giving you a sneak peek at the information that only 75 attendees will be receiving.
But I won’t be able to provide you with all the great information our speakers are providing and the amazing things we’re going to see on the tours. I’m only one person, and I can’t write that fast.
You can see it all with our Offshore Investment Blueprint. This kit will provide you with videos of all the presentations as well as the two tours. Get all this great information without having to board a plane!
This is our most exclusive conference. We sell out fast every time, but we don’t want you to miss out on the critical information you will need to develop an effective Plan B to safeguard your wealth against the changes coming to the United States.
Be sure to check back tomorrow when I give you a glimpse of what Jeff and Ted see for the future and what actions you can take now.
