As over-indebted governments grow increasingly desperate for money, keeping all your savings in a single country becomes a risky practice...
And start doing it today…
Remember, your government... considers you a milk cow. And history has shown, if they need to, they’ll use you as a beef cow, as well."
If you’re alarmed by the growing threat—from your own government—to your financial health and personal freedom, I can’t blame you.
You’ve seen the crowded parade of new laws, taxes, and regulations recently passed or now in the works. While many of those measures seem small, together they threaten to clog the arteries of the economy. Prospering—or just holding on to what you already have—won’t be easy.
In fact, I’m afraid that as financial resources shrink and government deficits rise, the grab for money will become more desperate. Governments will go beyond taxation and reach into retirement funds and into depositor accounts at banks to ask for help.
Events around the world show that capital controls, income tax hikes (to rates as high as 75%), debt monetization, nationalization of private pension vehicles, bail-ins and bank deposit confiscations, and other futile but destructive options aimed at your money will be used by cash-strapped governments.
No matter how well protected your government tells you your money is, how comfortable can you really be if it’s all in one country?
Fortunately, it’s not too late to diversify your assets internationally to protect yourself from an out-of-control government… and there are many practical, low-cost strategies you can put into place without ever leaving home.
“If you knew what’s good for you, you’d buy risk-free US Treasury bonds for your IRA and 401(k). Just in case you don’t understand that, we’re making an investment in US Treasuries mandatory for your retirement account.”
That’s my plain-English translation of the Obama administration’s argument that it should be handling our pension funds for us. (To be fair, the Bush administration made a similar move, but it died in Congress at the time.)
Retirement USA is basically an effort that amounts to nationalizing 401(k)s and IRAs."
The first step toward putting a government harness on your IRA has already been taken by the Service Employee International Union (SEIU), which has mounted an effort to create government-mandated worker retirement accounts as an entitlement program.
In other words, US companies, already bogged down with Obamacare costs, would be required by law to provide retirement funds for employees—with workers paying half the tab.
Under this program, cheerfully named “Retirement USA,” the government could then demand that part of the retirement contributions go into a government-created annuity funded by purchasing Treasury debt.
To see the flaws in this plan, we only have to look to Hungary, which in November 2010 gave its citizens an ultimatum: move your private-pension fund assets to the state or lose your state pension. The real purpose of this extortion scheme: reduce the country’s public debt.
Bloomberg reported that “workers who opt against returning to the state system stand to lose 70 percent of their pension claim.”
Do you really want to bet your retirement fund on the hope that nothing like this will get imported to your home country?
Mainstream investors think that using a few mutual funds or buying a couple of stocks trading on Canadian exchanges adds up to diversification. They’ll be the ones hurting the most when the economic tsunami hits.
But your name doesn’t need to show up on the list of victims.
Most people understand that it’s foolish to keep all their eggs in one basket. Yet they fail to go far enough in applying the principle. Portfolio diversification isn’t just about investing in multiple stocks or in multiple asset classes. Real diversification—the kind that keeps you safe—means holding assets in multiple countries, so that you’re not overexposed to the economic and political risks that are present in every country.
Doug Casey, founder and chairman of Casey Research, has said pointedly that spreading your political risk beyond a single jurisdiction is the single most important thing he can recommend today.
In short, international diversification is prudent because it frees you from absolute dependence on any one country. Achieve that independence, and your life can never be dominated by events or policies in any country.
Wealthy families have been diversifying internationally for centuries. Today, with modern communications, international diversification is within everyone’s reach.
You don’t even have to leave your living room to do it.
Whether it’s opening an offshore bank or brokerage account, owning physical gold in Singapore or Switzerland, or setting up a foreign company to hold your investments, low-cost solutions are within everyone’s reach.
That’s why I’m writing to you today, so that you can discover the possibilities for yourself. You’ll learn all about them in our new, book-length Going Global 2015 report. It spells out in full detail the eight best ways for you to TRULY diversify internationally and do it without ever getting on an airplane.
And as a BONUS, you’ll also learn how to use international online services to protect your electronic communications from professional hackers and NSA snoops.
You’re not going to hear about these opportunities from your broker or financial adviser, simply because they’re beyond his realm of expertise.
But diversifying internationally is now more important than ever.
Because what’s threatening your prosperity is the endless meddling by your own government... providing handouts and bailouts that you pay for... racking up trillions of dollars in debt that can never be repaid... passing more and more restrictions, regulations, and taxes... hobbling the economy and tormenting the people who pay the bills.
Allow me to briefly introduce myself...
I’m Nick Giambruno, senior editor of InternationalMan.com. For me, internationalization is a passion. It’s also my full-time job.
And I’m honored to be working on this report with the original “International Man,” Doug Casey.
Doug isn’t just a well-known contrarian investor and self-made multimillionaire, he is also a true citizen of the world. In the 1970s, he wrote The International Man, a book on investing and living in foreign countries. His next book was the acclaimed Crisis Investing, which became the best-selling financial book in 1980.
Today, Doug is a sought-after speaker at investment conferences across North America, and usually it’s standing room-only during his presentations.
Here’s something else about Doug Casey: his unique expertise makes him the master of diversification—the kind of diversification that can truly make a difference for your life and your savings. And over the years, he has established a network of specialists that are cut from the same cloth.
Move a significant portion of your savings out of your home country...
By far the most effective way to ensure your personal and financial freedom is to have your citizenship in one country, your bank and brokerage accounts in another, your residence in another, and your business activities everywhere else. That’s an ideal, of course, and it isn’t practical for most people.
What is practical for everybody, and totally necessary, is to move a significant portion of your assets out of your home country. . .
The storm that’s just now breaking has been building for a long time. It’s not too late to take shelter. But it soon will be. I don’t mean to be alarmist, but—notwithstanding temporary reversals—things are going to be unraveling for years to come."
Doug and the team of experts at Casey Research have put together Going Global 2015 with specific advice and in-depth information on all the ways you can protect yourself.
And remember, the benefits of international diversification aren’t exclusive to Americans, Canadians, Australians, or any one particular nationality. The information in this exclusive report is prudent advice for anyone in the world seeking to reduce his exposure to the arbitrary edicts of politicians in his home country.
This book-length report is a go-to resource for gaining the safety and opportunity you can only achieve by looking beyond borders.

It’s an unparalleled compendium of intelligence you won’t find anywhere else.
But I also have to tell you what it’s not: It is NOT a handbook on how to evade taxes or scoff at the laws of your home government. We’re interested in safety, and playing by the rules is an essential ingredient for staying safe.
That’s why we’re keeping it real—providing feasible (and legally sound) guidance and actionable advice.
You’ve heard about the Federal Reserve’s policy of runaway money creation. It’s laying the foundation for over-the-top price inflation. Get ready for five-dollar lettuce.
Not too long ago, many investors were buying euros, hoping that the Eurozone currency would outperform the dollar. But with the ongoing debt disaster in the PIIGS countries (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain), that’s not a smart bet.
While Going Global 2015 warns against the danger of relying too heavily on the dollar, it doesn’t recommend ditching it for the euro. Instead, it tells you which five currencies are best positioned to survive the inflationary hurricane that’s coming.
You’ll also get details on the three ways to acquire and hold the right foreign currencies:
And perhaps even more important, you’ll learn which are the best banking jurisdictions for keeping the currencies and which banks in those locations are best.
If you don’t yet have a bank account in another country, it would be wise to hurry up and get one.
Holding foreign currencies in an account outside of your home country is the way to go if you REALLY want to diversify your savings internationally—but in the last few years, new government policies, intentionally or not, have made it harder for you to open accounts with foreign banks.
It’s not too late, though—there are still feasible ways to open a foreign account. But you have to act quickly, before Washington enacts even stricter controls over your money.
In Going Global 2015, you’ll find the specific steps for opening an account. And you’ll find advice on how best to present yourself to a foreign bank as a welcome customer, including tactful answers to standard know-your-customer questions.
From Switzerland to Singapore to Hong Kong, we’ll show you what to look for in choosing a foreign bank.
Remember, money in a foreign bank account can be safer than money in a US bank account. Just consider that of the 50 safest banks in the world, only five are US banks, and the highest rank any of those five has achieved is #39. Where bank safety is concerned, the US is a third-world country.
In Going Global 2015, you’ll find all the information you need to open a bank account in a foreign country... and I urge you to read it today, for the sake of your financial security.
But as useful as foreign currencies and offshore bank accounts can be for diversification, there’s one safe and convenient way to protect yourself that I’m pretty sure your broker will never mention...
A second passport is a guarantee of international mobility. And whenever you want, it will allow you to live and work in the country where you’ve acquired your second passport, without restrictions of any kind.

Whether it’s obtaining citizenship by ancestry, through economic citizenship programs, special circumstances, or naturalization, Going Global 2015 covers in detail all the routes to the coveted second passport.
In this report, you’ll learn how to find the places that are right for you—the right places to invest, the right places to keep your money, and the right places to make your second home.
There’s even more for you in Going Global 2015, including:
... and much more.
Going Global 2015 is no pamphlet. It’s a complete handbook for gaining the safety and opportunity that is only possible by internationalizing your financial life. This report is so rich with valuable, ready-to-use information that you might expect a fat, three-digit price.

The facts you’ll find in Going Global 2015 are firsthand, on-the-ground knowledge developed by our team of experts who traveled the world to grill international lawyers, bankers, real estate experts, brokers, and asset managers. We don’t eat baloney, and we don’t sell it.

But that’s not all.
When you purchase Going Global 2015, the “Resources” chapter will link you to additional special reports written by our experts, and for you, they’ll be free. You’ll get:
You’ll also learn the names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of offshore banks and brokers that will welcome your business—yes, even from American citizens. You won’t need to send a seven-figure bank wire and say “please” to open an account.
And you’ll find professional resources that can help you form and use a foreign company or international trust.
These are specialists who understand the asset-protection and tax-planning opportunities and who want to keep you fully in compliance with all reporting requirements.
You’ll also be introduced to experts who can help you obtain an alternative passport, and you’ll meet CPAs who are knowledgeable about offshore and international tax reporting rules. They can help you file your tax returns and stay completely within the rules.
You wouldn’t bet everything on one stock. You diversify. You wouldn’t bet everything on one industry. You diversify. I urge you to follow the same prudent principle with currencies, national economies, and national governments. Protect yourself with the safety of international diversification.
