Finally! A newsletter focused on agorism and counter-economics. The technology underlying agorism and the community surrounding it are growing so fast, it’s tough to keep track of it all. I’m looking forward to finding new topics/ideas/technologies and people on these pages.
And the motivation and instruction for building a free world (and a liberated life) through Agorist, counter-economic action.
We're self-made libertarian entrepreneurs who live and breathe agorism.
Agorism was coined in the ‘70s by radical libertarian theorist Samuel Edward Konkin III:
“The goal of agorism is the agora. The society of the open marketplace as near to untainted by theft, assault, and fraud as can be humanly attained is as close to a free society as can be achieved. And a free society is the only one in which each and every one of us can satisfy his or her subjective values without crushing others’ values by violence and coercion”.
Agorism is the peaceful economic exchange of goods and services outside of the State’s control.
This is often called “counter-economics.”
It's when enterprising individuals peacefully and voluntarily buy and sell products and services in the black and "grey" markets - ignoring the State’s laws, regulations, and restrictions on commerce.
Basically, you’re buying and selling what you want, how you want, with whomever you want, any time you want WITHOUT government approval.
We’ve built, bootstrapped, and grown scores of online and offline businesses for over 30 years ranging from alternative media and advertising to wealth management, cryptocurrency solutions, and self-sufficiency.
We've done it above-board in the white market...
...In the weird, regulatory loopholes of the grey market...
And (theoretically, for the state agents reading) in the forbidden black market.
Here's the short list of the agorists behind the Counter Markets Newsletter:
Digital media and cryptocurrency entrepreneur, homeschooling dad, and mediocre gardener. Current COO of CoinText.
Serial entrepreneur and startup founder, software developer, and media star. Current CTO of CoinText.
Editor-in-Chief of Activist Post Media and expat in an undisclosed location in Central America.
Self-sufficiency expert and founder of a cooperative makerspace in Thailand.
Wealth advisor and host of the Cashflow Ninja Podcast.
Independent journalist and leading Agorist.
We're going to show you step-by-step HOW to put agorism into action to take control of your life, your future, and your liberty.
Every Issue Is Divided Into 5 main sections:
Trends and Forecasting
We analyze global and local trends in current events as if they are puzzle pieces.
Arranging them together to reveal a tapestry of emerging changes, opportunities, and warnings for the future.
Giving you the opportunity to slow down, trace the past, and gain a deeper understanding of how we wound up in the world as it stands today...
...and where the zeitgeist is leading.
For both profitable investments and detailed knowledge of the forces shaping reality around you.
You’ve probably heard it before, but you need to hear it again…
Today, right now, is the best time to start your own business and grow wealth (inside or outside) the system.
In every issue of Counter Markets, you’ll get tried-and-true business strategies from successful libertarian entrepreneurs.
You’ll discover how to make money and grow your wealth without the IRS stealing 40% of it (or more) each year.
You’ll understand how to trade with alternative currencies such as Bitcoin or gold.
And you’ll learn techniques and strategies for operating a business in the black or grey markets, outside the scope of government oversight or intrusion.
You'll find out:
wealth protection and growth
The government steals your money any way it can.
We show you how to invest your fiat USD into commodities, properties, cryptocurrencies, and more to safeguard your wealth from the greedy hands of politicians.
And then we show you how to leverage these assets to grow your wealth and financial security long term.
We’ll also walk you through systems and processes you can use to circumvent traditional banking or investment options in order to get higher returns without letting the banksters profit from your activity.
You need to know how to survive and thrive without asking for permission, without getting a license, and without getting caught.
That’s why we deliver DIY guides on everything from 3D printers to solar power so you know how to keep your family warm, put food on the table, and create the things you need to live comfortably while staying as off-grid as possible.
But more than self-sufficient living, you’ll learn about technologies and platforms that are decentralizing the control governments and corporations try to exercise over your life.
And we’ll show you how to use these tools to live free and prosper.
bitcoin and silver reports
If you want to profit from Bitcoin, you need to know when to buy and sell it.
Every month, we dive into the latest Bitcoin activity, showing you when it dipped and rose in price and the activity surrounding these events.
We’ll give you insight into the mind of a Bitcoin trader and forecast future activity so you’ll be prepared to “strike” at the right moments.
But we go beyond cryptocurrency and monitor the second-best reserve for wealth next to gold...
We analyze current monetary policy, global market activity, and economies in key countries to give you insights into how the US dollar and stock market is performing so you know what’s driving the price of silver up or down.
We also show you how well silver has been trading, recap its latest activity, and forecast what’s coming in the future so you know when and how to invest your wealth in this precious metal as a proven safe-haven from recessions, depressions, and collapses.
I am very impressed. That isn’t easy to do. We live in a world where, in many ways, content is produced in such quantity to get someone to pay for it requires something special. I think Vin and his team have nailed it in that regard. It will give subscribers an edge in changing markets.
