Doug Casey – The International Man Interview – We Discuss His Best and Worst Speculations, Dinner With Dictators, International Investing In War Zones and More

 

Doug Casey is a world-class thinker, speculator, traveler, and in my opinion the most interesting guy in the world. Think about it. Who do you know who has had dinner with third-world dictators, has tried to take a country public… and almost succeeded, written multiple best-selling books, made and lost millions in his speculations, and he is still looking to try new things.

This week we learn about Doug Casey. We discuss some of the secrets to his success, some of the most interesting places to invest at a time when everything is overpriced, how to become an international man, and why dictators are more interesting than anybody you know.

Doug Casey Bio:

Best-selling author, world-renowned speculator, and libertarian philosopher Doug Casey has garnered a well-earned reputation for his erudite (and often controversial) insights into politics, economics, and investment markets.

Doug is widely respected as one of the preeminent authorities on “rational speculation,” especially in the high-potential natural resource sector.

Doug literally wrote the book on profiting from periods of economic turmoil: his book Crisis Investing spent multiple weeks as #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and became the best-selling financial book of 1980 with 438,640 copies sold; surpassing big-caliber names, like Free to Choose by Milton Friedman, The Real War by Richard Nixon, and Cosmos by Carl Sagan.

Then Doug broke the record with his next book, Strategic Investing, by receiving the largest advance ever paid for a financial book at the time. Interestingly enough, Doug’s book The International Man was the most sold book in the history of Rhodesia. And his most recent releases Totally Incorrect (2012) and Right on the Money (2013) continue the tradition of challenging statism and advocating liberty and free markets.

He has been a featured guest on hundreds of radio and TV shows, including David Letterman, Merv Griffin, Charlie Rose, Phil Donahue, Regis Philbin, Maury Povich, NBC News, and CNN; has been the topic of numerous features in periodicals such as Time, Forbes, People, and the Washington Post; and is a regular keynote speaker at FreedomFest, the world’s largest gathering of free minds.
Doug has lived in 10 countries and visited over 175.
You can find Doug at www.internationalman.com

Topics we cover in this episode:

  • International investing
  • Dinner with dictators
  • Bringing a country (government) public
  • Becoming wealthy in 3rd world countries
  • Buying artwork for pennies on the dollar
  • Doug’s first entrepreneurial venture
  • His thoughts on Ayn Rand’s Virtue of Selfishness
  • Why Doug prefers writing fiction
  • His successful debate with Phil Donahue
  • Why science fiction is a better predictor of the future that any think tank
  • Will Ray Kurzweil’s singularity concept allow us to live as long as we want in peak form?
  • Top minds think we living in a simulation, what do you think?
  • Doug’s opinion of speculating vs investing
  • Why the worst sector in the world is the one he favors most.
  • The outcome of the greater depression
  • Should you invest in commodities
  • How you know when a trend is coming to an end.
  • Investing in bitcoin, pot stocks, and investments with extreme risk.

…and more.

Stan The Annuity Man Hates Annuities… Find Out Why

“Annuities are not bought, they’re sold.”

Stan “The Annuity Man” Haithcock knows all about annuities and he explains why there is so much negativity around this financial product.

Variable, fixed, immediate, indexed: It can all be confusing to an investor who doesn’t understand the industry jargon. Have you ever considered that maybe it is not an accident that annuities are confusing?

“If you are looking for market returns, you should never ever ever buy any type of annuity. If you are looking for income or principle preservation, or maybe some long term care issues, then an annuity may fit.”

These are the two most important question you need to ask before you buy an annuity:

1. What do you want the money to contractually do?
2. When do you want those contractual guarantees to start?

Find out why on our show…

 

Listen to the interview here:

After you listen to our interview with Stan, make sure you check out part 2 of this episode where our panel of annuity experts discusses annuities. There is some disagreement on the panel about some of the topics Stan discussed. You don’t want to miss this exciting 2 part episode.
