Profit Incentive – Earning VS Stealing

The incentive to profit has the private sector meeting demand, while that same incentive has government penalizing these consumers and businesses. March 27, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP One of the greatest criticisms I see about unfettered capitalism is the “profit incentive”. Of course the same people who make this criticism are some of the first people who respond to images like the one featured here with: “IN A NEW YORK MINUTE!” They don’t make the connection that profit is often what gets us to do things that we might n … [Read More...]

Interview: Crush The Street – “US is the Worst Place to do Business”

March 23, 2017 Interview with Kenneth Ameduri and Bobby Casey Kenneth Ameduri from interviews Bobby Casey about internationalization of assets and the benefits it can offer.  Without a doubt, America is heading in a very dark direction.  Every dollar represents a portion of our $20 trillion debt, and the Federal Reserve just keeps printing.  The government is cracking down hard on businesses. The good news is, there are still ways to protect your assets under a Trump presidency.  There are still considerable benefits … [Read More...]

Healthcare Reform Bringing About Free Market Solutions

The government is controlling so much of healthcare, that it’s forcing a free market solution. March 20, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director It wasn’t that long ago really when the United States had a far more free market based healthcare system. Less than one hundred years ago, people were getting healthcare and it was quite affordable. It was largely a mix of cash and mutual aid. It was highly competitive and really reasonably priced because doctors were competing for lodge practice contracts. Once government introduced some … [Read More...]

Venezuela & Greece at the Brink of Economic Collapse

Venezuela and Greece become the modern-day examples for what economic collapse looks like. March 13, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Economic collapse, Venezuela, and Greece are not new topics, especially for us. But if you’re looking for a contemporary case study or even a glimpse at what it actually looks like when a country collapses, then look no further than Greece and Venezuela. We can speculate as to who might be next, but for now, these two are done. Venezuela One country is no worse than the other, but each time I s … [Read More...]

Offshore Trusts Proving to be Effective Solution for Non-Domiciled Expats

Offshore trusts offer a solution and sound countermeasure against upcoming UK change in tax regime. This change will adversely affect many of its currently non-domiciled residents. March 6, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP I’ve been telling people for years to get an offshore trust. Years.  I get that it might not be the most pressing thing in the world for many people.  If  you’ve been getting along because nothing has happened to you yet, that is great, and I hope that trend continues; however, that doesn’t mean the powe … [Read More...]

Trump’s Market Interventionism and Cronyism

Corporatism or crony capitalism has already found its way into the Trump administration. In less than a month, it’s the new boss same as the old boss. February 27, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP As a small business owner, few things bother me more than corporatism or crony capitalism. I hated it under Obama, and I hate it still under Trump. For a guy who loves to decry market manipulations out of China, Trump is swift to intervene and manipulate the market on the American side of things. You’d think that Trump supporters w … [Read More...]

The Status of the American Surveillance State

The American surveillance state hasn’t really shrunk or gone away, but rather has repackaged and obscured itself. February 20, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director We did several articles on the American surveillance state, but it doesn’t look like it’s gone anywhere. Edward Snowden revelations notwithstanding, it looks like the only thing that’s changed is the level of stealth the government has taken it to. There’s a movie called “The Kingsmen”. If you’ve never seen it, I highly recommend it. Aside from being a cool story line … [Read More...]

Trade and Immigration Policies & the Unintended Consequences

Trump’s trade and immigration policies are unfolding, and the unintended consequences so far are outnumbering the good intentions that prompted their enactment. February 13, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP As Trump’s trade and immigration policies unfold, the contentious rivalry between unintended consequences and well-meaning objectives isn’t obscure. I don’t deny the intent of tariffs and restricted immigration. Tariffs are meant to make cheap imports more competitively priced to what American made products cost: to offse … [Read More...]

The Education Bubble Hasn’t Gone Anywhere

The education bubble has been expanding year over year, while the Department of Education was having some “technical problems” with their reporting. February 6, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The education bubble hasn’t gone anywhere. We’ve written about this a few times before (“Government: Over Promises and Under Delivers” and “Tuition Bubble”) , and for some reason we were left with the very false understanding that everything was well in hand thanks to Obama’s Income Driven Repayment plan. In fact, it turns out, due to so … [Read More...]

Trump’s Inheritance and Economics

Obama's economy is Trump's inheritance; so what sort of economic policy are we in for? January 30, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Trump, like the 44 presidents before him, has inherited the American economy. It’s time to learn what HIS economic policy really is and what it will boil down to. Obama admittedly inherited a messy economy from Bush. And while every president inherits some modicum of slop from their predecessors, Obama inherited a recession, while Bush inherited a surplus. Less than a year after Obama took o … [Read More...]

January 23, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director The Trump administration is officially at the helm, and policies are underway!  Now what?  Regulations, tax codes, foreign investment competition, stimulating the economy without irresponsible risk are all waiting at the door of the Oval Office waiting for their turn.

January 16, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP 2017 is off to a bumpy start, and being that there’s still a few days before Donald Trump takes office, we can’t exactly blame him… yet… however, he will have quite a bit to contend with once he assumes office. Congress and Obama have been busy getting Trump’s welcome basket of issues ready, and it’s no small bundle.  By no means is this a comprehensive list, but it does touch on a few key and pressing issues. … [Read More...]
