Doug Casey and I Just Left the Most Incredible, Bloody, and Catastrophic Island

Recently, I left the worst place in the Western Hemisphere…

Haiti is a scene of unending human tragedy. It’s by far the poorest and most messed-up country on this side of the globe.

Most Haitians live on about $2 a day. Malnutrition and disease is rampant. Over 40% of the population is illiterate.

The misery there is simply on a different level.

Look at any international ranking, and Haiti is always at the bottom. It’s the last place anyone would think to visit, let alone invest in.

That’s a big reason why I went.

Anyone can go to France, or England, or Germany. Big deal.

I’ve always enjoyed far-off places outside of the usual tourist circuit. I think they’re far more interesting. And they offer better adventures.

Plus, strange countries with bad reputations are exactly the places a crisis investor should visit. The world’s most bombed-out, hated, and depressed regions can offer life-changing contrarian investment opportunities.

Seeing these places firsthand also gives us valuable insight into what really happens when an economy totally collapses.

That’s why I fly around the world with Doug Casey, chasing economic collapse, civil unrest, revolution, war, and geopolitical turmoil.

Haiti is just our latest stop.

The World’s First Economic Citizenship Program

Doug and I were also in Haiti to pitch radical free market reforms to the highest levels of the Haitian government. This is a country with terminal cancer and multiple gunshot wounds. Band-Aids won’t do the trick.

One of the ideas we discussed was economic citizenship.

It’s well known that countries like Saint Kitts, Dominica, and Malta have official, legal programs to sell their citizenship and passports to foreign investors. But the whole concept is rooted in Haiti.
