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…

The Scots behind Argentina’s sheep farming success

One of the largest sheep farming developments ever in the world is thanks to the emigration of farmers from Scotland’s bleak north coast to Argentina, a new book reveals. The little-known story of intrepid pioneers from Caithness who travelled across the globe is now being told. ‘Caithness to Patagonia’ tells of a largely uncharted aspect of the Scottish diaspora, featuring tales of adventure, hardship and some significant success stories. The regions of Caithness and Patagonia are literally a world…

11 property tips when buying

My thoughts from 30 yrs in the real estate industry. Tip 1: Contact your broker, don’t wait for them to contact you – Good properties always sell, even in a challenging market. Your ability to buy the best properties that tick all your boxes comes down to your relationships with the local brokers, so take the lead and make sure they always think of you first when they become aware of that perfect property. Ask to be on their mailing list if you are not already. Tip 2: Buy when you can afford to…

The early Scots pioneers in Argentina and the Patagonia Austral (Chile)

The early Scots pioneers in Argentina and the Patagonia Austral As part of the huge exodus of European peoples, significant Scots emigrated overseas the hundred years before the first world war. Most settled in the United States of America or Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other parts of Britain’s vast empire. A significant minority, however, emigrated to South American states, Argentina being a popular choice. The first Scots settled there in the years before Argentina became an independent confederation…

The unknown Argentine war heroes of the second world war

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. On the other side, in the same sky, forty German planes. Two against forty, that simple. RAF pilots don’t cower. On the contrary,…

Selling or buying properties in remote locations

Sellers face many of the same challenges as buyers do. Still, given current market conditions in many South American markets where we operate, we are finding the market is slow for remote properties. They are often owned as second or third investments outside their home location and are only visited once or twice a year. Each Seller’s motivation clearly varies. However, there is a broad spectrum of Sellers, from those content with fair market value and others who really don’t care what fair market value…

As a whole, this sector is responsible for 100,000 direct jobs…

Argentina seen through different eyes

Historians will normally agree that history is best written by those who are not nationals of the country they are writing about. So it is not surprising that when The New York Times sent a journalist to cover the Southern Cone, once said that Argentina was like a five-star hotel in which all the guests were complaining about the room service. His metaphor had a message: that those fractious hotel guests had no reason to complain about the room service. They merely had to stop bickering and recognise what they…
