Opinions on Jeff Berwick (The Dollar Vigilante)
I never knew about Jeff before, I see he has a ton of woke videos, watched some of those and the guy is on point on so many aspects. Have some of you followed him for a longer time and can share your opinion on the guy? He seems sincere.

Guy created a company and due to luck, received millions from the sale. Invested in a bunch of endeavors (including Bitcoin) and now is just another guy selling information (how to become rich).

I used to like the guy but realized he's just another case of survival bias.

I like his coronavirus videos and been watching them daily. However when he talking about the bible or Christianity it doesn't feel completely authentic.

His past is also troubling. I don't know all the details but there are accusations he was selling passports for several countries and then failing to deliver.

This guy is still around? I thought he fled to Mars after the Galt's Gulch disaster.

Six years ago, Berwick teamed with two guys named John Cobin and Ken Johnson and some Chileans to build a libertarian paradise in Chile. People bought small plots from them expecting a futuristic self contained community. Instead they found out that the water rights were never purchased, the land was never rezoned for small residential plots and some needed environmental permits were never completed. I'm not even sure that a single house was ever constructed. It quickly devolved into everyone accusing each other of being a fraud and lawsuits were thrown about.

Then there was his TDV Passports business. Basically, people were told that if they forked over thousands of dollars, they could get an extradited passport to a Latin American country of their choice or whatever. This scam was revealed when his Paraguayan agent was found running a fake passport workshop in her basement. I really don't know much more about his escapades more than that.

Listen to his viewpoints for an alternative perspective. His general anti-state outlook is helpful.

Don't do business with him.

The guy's pitch seems OK enough, but there are more serious pundits out there like James Corbett or Whitney Webb, who are pretty thorough and beyond reproach.
