Doug Casey view of the World – Picks War in Europe and bets on Argentina

by Doug Casey International Man EUROPE From at least the 1600s, Europe could claim to be the center of world civilization on all fronts. The colonies of the Portuguese, Spanish, English, French, and Russian empires (with the Dutch, Germans, Italians, and Americans as bit players) covered almost the entire planet. In its early days, an empire is both fun and profitable. You get to loot and pillage at will, and an empire provides lots of room to relocate the disenchanted, the overly adventurous, and the criminals.…

A young foreign woman’s story of finding a new home in Argentina

Over the past few decades, more and more people have been travelling the world finding a new home in far-flung corners of the planet. Personally, I never imagined 20 years ago, that Argentina would one day be my home. Living in Australia at the time, I thought maybe I would make my permanent home there, or perhaps return someday to my birthplace, New Zealand, or maybe even try my luck somewhere in Europe. South America, and Argentina, were not on the list. A trip to Peru in early 2000 set off a chain of…

They fought as members of the Allied forces in the greatest conflagration in history against fascism. Many died without recognition, and others now tell their story for the first time. Fourth of July, 1944. The beaches of Normandy are the scene of one of the most famous battles in history. They cross two Spitfire aircraft from the RAF, the Royal British Air Force, through the sky.
