Geopolitics


"Today we live in a single, unified worldwide economy, so the actions of numerous foreign governments affect your investment results in myriad ways. Very often, events on the other side of the globe have more influence on your money than events in your home town."

Geopolitics

I began writing about geopolitics and economics in 1969, and I have now seen enough to believe that the most important influence on a person's standard of living is his or her political viewpoint.

Here's why.

The government controls the economy, mostly through the Federal Reserve's manipulation of the money supply. If you believe the government will always do the wise and honorable thing, and you conduct your business and investment affairs accordingly, odds are high that you will end up living out of a shopping cart under a bridge. If you assume the opposite — that they will never do what is wise and honorable — you will be wrong on rare occasions, but correct so often that your odds of achieving great success will be good.

I've seen many people who were honest and hardworking, but naïve about politics, and they ended up broke. Camouflaged by complexity, the political scams went right over their heads, and stabbed them in the back. I've also known many who earned fortunes by being savvy (or cynical) about politics. Many are EWR subscribers. (No surprise there.)

The need to be politically savvy goes not only for domestic politics but geopolitics, too. Governments manipulate their economies, which means that they are the single most important factor in determining investment results all over the globe.

Today we live in a single, unified worldwide economy, so the actions of numerous foreign governments affect your investment results in myriad ways. Very often, events on the other side of the globe have more influence on your money than events in your home town.
