Why are Billionaires Preparing for a Major U.S. Crisis?

Financial Researcher: Things may seem OK - but here's what's really happening and the simple steps you must take NOW to protect yourself immediately…

Dear Fellow American,

On the surface, everything in America seems OK.

But if that’s the case, why are so many wealthy and well-connected people quietly preparing for a collapse of the federal government… and complete social disorder?

The list of folks who’ve established some type of escape plan or “bolt-hole” is startling…

Steve Huffman is the founder and CEO of Reddit… an internet firm worth at least $500 million.

Huffman says he’s getting ready for, “the temporary collapse of our government and structures…” 

One successful U.S. hedge fund manager moved his entire family to Singapore. He says the government “has no clue what they are doing. They are going to ruin
us all."

Another hedge fund manager, billionaire Kyle Bass, built a 41,000-square foot ranch stocked with firearms and gold.

Peter Thiel, the billionaire founder of PayPal, paid $10 million for a second
passport and a 400-acre estate in New Zealand.

A.G. Martínez, a former Facebook product manager, bought an island in the Pacific Northwest and stocked it with generators, solar panels, and ammunition.

He says: “I think people who are particularly attuned to the levers by which society actually works understand that we are skating on really thin cultural ice right now.”

Robert Dugger, a former partner at the global hedge fund Tudor Investment Corporation, says:

“people… are worried that America is heading toward something like the Russian Revolution.”

And when Reid Hoffman, the billionaire founder and CEO of LinkedIn, was asked what percentage of Silicon Valley billionaires are preparing for a major crisis, he answered: “50%+.”

Why are all these people so concerned?

What do they know that you don’t?

An Inevitable Crisis is on the Horizon

My name is Porter Stansberry.

I’m the Founder and CEO of Stansberry Research.

Most investors probably know we’re widely recognized as the world’s largest independent financial research firm. We serve many of the world’s top investors: hedge funds, major banks, America’s top money managers, mutual funds, private equity firms, and some of America’s wealthiest families and celebrities.

All told, we have more than 350 employees in offices stretching from Singapore to New York City, covering virtually every major financial market in the world, from municipal bonds to exotic commodity-based derivatives.

In more than 120 countries we serve nearly a million subscribers, who rely on us every day to help guide their investment decisions and identify emerging risks.

And there’s something else. Something I very rarely talk about.

More than a decade ago, as America approached its largest financial crisis in almost 100 years, I was one of the very few analysts who foresaw that both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would collapse. Barron’s, America’s leading weekly financial magazine, even profiled my work.

Likewise, as early as 2006 I explained how GM couldn’t possibly escape bankruptcy. Our firm warned subscribers to short Lehman Brothers and explained why its collapse could trigger a global financial crisis.

But that’s not all.

I believed there was a significant likelihood that the 2008 financial crisis would cause the complete collapse of the existing financial order -- a global flight out of all paper money.

I knew the only way to deal with the enormous losses in the U.S. mortgage market (around $2.5 trillion) would be to print money on a massive scale.

And that’s exactly what has happened… and why I’m writing to you today.

The world’s major central banks have embarked on an unprecedented monetary experiment, printing more than $15 trillion and backing their currencies with risky mortgages, corporate debt, and even highly volatile American tech stocks.

But not one American in 1,000 knows anything about these enormous risks that are now hiding in plain sight.

Not one in 1,000 understands the direct link between the central banks actions and the incredible bull market of the last eight years.

My firm, however, has been studying this subject closely for more than a decade. And understanding these connections has given us a huge edge in the markets...

  • We helped readers see nearly 400% gains by showing them how the government would bail out the banks. We recommended purchasing “warrants” on some of the banks that were bailed out after the last crisis.
  • We showed folks how “easy money” policies would cause gold prices to soar, which lead to gains of as much as 995%.
  • We explained how buying America’s most “capital efficient” businesses, right in the middle of the last crisis, could lead to gains of more than 200%.
  • And we even showed subscribers how to “hedge” their portfolio, by “shorting” a company that issues extremely risky auto loans. The play returned more than 50%.

But I’m not writing you today to tell you how to profit from this huge, ongoing financial inflation.

In fact, just the opposite.

I’m writing today to tell you how to survive what will happen next.

America is in for some major changes to our economy, our country, and our very way of life over the next five years. And when the next crisis arrives, it’s going to look NOTHING like the last one.

The way you live, work, travel, retire, invest... everything is going to change. Some of it in ways most people would never expect.

The next crisis is approaching… and it’s going to be a shocking event that not only affects the banks and the stock market—but every human on the planet. I’ll show you exactly why this is true, in just a second.

We are going to witness major changes to the very fabric of our society.

You probably think that sounds crazy.

That’s OK.

People thought I was crazy a few years back when I predicted oil prices would go from over $100 a barrel to less than $40. Then it happened.

People thought I was crazy when I predicted the collapse of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and General Motors. Then they all went bankrupt.

People thought I was crazy when I said the biggest mall owner in America and one of America’s biggest newspaper companies would go bust. Then those companies fell apart, just as I predicted.

So look… I get it. I’m used to people doubting my analysis.

And I know…

Everything seems better in America. Real estate sales have hit a 10-year high… and the NASDAQ stock market index just hit a new all-time high.

But there’s a big problem.

We have completely destroyed and ruined one of the most critical elements for a fair, stable, and opportunistic society…

Our money.

Yes, the destruction of our money has been happening for decades.

But this problem has accelerated in a dramatic way in the past decade.

In that short span…

  • We’ve DOUBLED our national debt to a whopping $20 trillion!
  • We’ve printed more money out of thin air (nearly $5 trillion) than at any time in our nation’s history.
  • And we’ve artificially manipulated interest rates for the past 8 years, making it easier and cheaper than ever to borrow money.

And that’s not even the worst part.

The worst part is that artificially lowering interest rates (as the Fed has been doing for the past few years) has encouraged millions and millions of people to borrow money they can’t possibly afford to pay back.

The government’s actions to "stimulate the economy" haven’t led to any real increase to wages or wealth.

But it has created a new, enormous, credit bubble.

Not including mortgages, the U.S. consumer is now in more debt than ever before in our nation’s entire economic history.

At the same time, wages have gone nowhere.

This is an economic recipe for a huge wave of debt defaults, with total losses that will rival the mortgage crisis.

Not many people understand the fallacy of what our leaders have done to our money. By manipulating its value and controlling its price (interest rates) they’ve simply engineered another huge credit bubble.

These policies are leading us off a cliff… towards the greatest
disaster our country has ever seen

The silent destruction of our money affects everything in America today...

But as I said, not one in 1,000 citizens understands what’s going on or what to do about it.

And that’s precisely why I wrote a new book, called America 2020—The New Crisis.

This is a handbook, a blueprint, and an owner's manual for how to protect yourself and your family over the next few years.

And I want to send you a copy of my new book, at a ridiculously low price. You’ll pay just $19… and I’ll even cover the costs of shipping this hardback volume to your front door.

Very few Americans understand the relationship between interest rates, bond prices, and our currency… and how this affects EVERYTHING in the financial world and the economy.

So far in 2017, for example, the dollar has fallen dramatically against nearly every major world currency… and has fallen even more against gold and silver. Default rates are rising… asset prices (like stocks and houses) are soaring.

But what’s going to happen next? And how can you protect yourself?

Everything is explained in our recent book: America 2020—The New Crisis.

If you truly want to understand what is going on, how it’s going to affect you and your money, and what you can do about it, there’s nothing else like this available, at any price.

Keep in mind: This book is not for sale ANYWHERE ELSE.

The only way you can get a copy is directly through my research firm.

And you’ll pay just $19 (which includes free shipping).

The truth is, I will actually lose money on each copy I send out. So why would I do this?

Two reasons.

For one, it's the right thing to do.

The American people deserve to know what our government has done to our money, what's coming next, and what you must do to protect yourself and your family from the currency disaster our government has created.

I know that the more people who are prepared… the fewer who are relying on the government… the better off we’ll all be.

The second reason I'm giving this information away at a ridiculously low price is because I know my Baltimore-based research firm (which I started 18 years ago) does the best work in America when it comes to retirement, investing, and protecting assets for individuals and families.

If I can help you prepare yourself for the huge change that’s coming in America, you might become a fan of our work, and a customer over the long term.

And I believe that rather than TELLING you about our work... the best thing I can do is simply SHOW you what we do, with a great sampleand no obligation for you to ever purchase anything from us ever again.

And that’s why I'm happy to send you my recently published book, America 2020—The New Crisis for just $19.

It’s jam-packed with literally dozens of useful ideas that will help protect you and your family.


  • The three assets you (legally) do not have to report to the government. (page 47)

Most Americans don't know there are three legal assets that you never, ever have to report to the government.

Yes, you still have to pay taxes if you earn income on these assets or sell for a profit, but you LEGALLY DO NOT have to tell the government or anyone else in the world that you own them.

The benefit of this should be obvious...

Nothing is more dangerous than a broke, desperate, and
well-armed government.

The less the government knows about where you have your money, the better. They will simply have a very hard time taking what they don't know you have.

Every American needs to get some money beyond the government's reach.

My 300-page Blueprint contains so much more... You'll also learn...

The one financial asset you must have to survive the next crisis. This strategy was taught to me by one of the richest and most successful men I know. It could save you or someone you love in the near future. This is probably the most important thing you can do to protect your family, and it costs you almost nothing (it has nothing to do with medicine or gold or anything like that.) (page 89)

How to safely and legally move as much money out of the U.S. and out of the U.S. dollar... without having to report a single penny of it to the U.S. government. Yes, this is all completely legal and it's a strategy used by many of my friends and colleagues. (page 43)

How one small neighborhood survived after hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. So many neighborhoods were destroyed and looted. But one used a radical technique to survive pretty much unscathed. What these folks did is extreme, and may not be right for you and your neighbors, but you should at least understand what they did. (page 91)

A unique way of owning U.S. currency that will soar in a crisis. This is a very clever way of holding real U.S. money. But you can’t get this money from your bank. I’ll show you exactly how this currency secret works. In 2009, during the last big crisis, it went up 50% in a single year... and could easily soar 500% during the next financial crisis. (page 49)

The most valuable asset in a currency crisis. There's no telling exactly how bad things are going to get as this crisis unfolds in America. There could be riots, protests, mobs, bank runs, even massive arrests, for extended periods of time. (page 76)

But the good news is, there is one asset you can own (now widely available in America), which should help protect you and your family from this chaos... and could also likely make you a small fortune in the years to come.

In fact, an index tracking this asset has absolutely crushed the stock market. Since 1992, it's returned well over 1,500% gains. AND IT’S NEVER HAD A DOWN YEAR DURING THIS TIME.

Best of all, it provided these gains with almost no volatility. Just look at the chart below. 

See how that black line goes straight up, without any hiccups?

Multimillionaire investor Barton Biggs, who has done exhaustive research on which types of assets survive a crisis, said this particular asset has historically "protect[ed] both your wealth and your life."

As my multi-millionaire friend Doug Casey says, it's the ONE THING you should own in the years to come.

My new 300-page book, America 2020—The New Crisis, contains all the details on everything you need to know... and so much more too... including:

  • My favorite private gold storage facility in America. Forget banks. You can find one of these operations in virtually every American city and town. (page 86)
  • A one-of-a-kind silver investment that could pay you up to 1,000%. There's one type of unique silver investment that could eventually be the most profitable investment in America when the next crisis hits. There's nothing else like it in the world as far as I know. (page 55)
  • A secret certificate used by the world's wealthiest people. This has nothing to do with the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Swiss franc or any other paper currency you've heard of before. These certificates are among the most lucrative investments in the world, pay enormous income, and allow you to completely separate as much money as you want from the U.S. banking and brokerage system. (page 94)
  • How to easily open a foreign bank account in one of the safest (English speaking) places in the world. Not everyone needs or wants to do this, but if you do, here’s where to go. (page 41)
  • Two of the most dangerous investments for the next five years. Almost every American has one or both of these. (page 95)
  • The 5 things you absolutely, positively must do to ensure you and your family can safely survive just about any crisis. Many "survival experts" list dozens of things you should stock up on. But believe me, there are basically just five things. (page 82)
  • My two favorite places to buy gold—I don’t get a penny for recommending these guys. (page 54)
  • How to invest in the world’s best hedge funds without paying any fees. Most hedge funds are a complete waste of money—but I’ll tell you about one fund that gives you access to one of the world’s best money managers… and you pay literally zero in fees. It’s returned 450% to investors since 2008. (page 163)
  • 25 True Trophy Assets you will want to make sure you buy when the prices get really cheap. Keep this “shopping list” handy. (page 113)
  • How to legally walk out of the country with $1 million in your pocket. I learned this from a former police officer who now runs a super-successful publicly traded business. (page 66)

And much, much more.

Look, I can't tell you exactly how bad things are going to get as our debts continue to soar, interest rates rise, and the value of our money continues to fall. No one can.

But I can tell you with 100% certainty that the next crisis is going to be very different from what we experienced in 2007-2008.

Just remember: We as Americans are not immune to the basic laws of economics and finance.

I think some of Donald Trump’s ideas are fantastic. Cutting taxes on individuals and corporations is the best thing you can do to spur the economy. But it appears he is going to also ratchet up deficit spending, which can only make our situation worse.

The only question is: Will you take the necessary steps for the big shift coming to America?

You will if you read and take the simple steps detailed in my new book:
America 2020—The New Crisis.

And that's why I want to send you a copy at a huge discount.

The $19 fee basically just covers my costs to produce, print, and ship this book to your home.

Now... I know... the ideas and solutions I'm encouraging you to take might seem somewhat radical to you at first... perhaps even "un-American."

But the truth is, I'm recommending these steps because I love this country, and I want to see as many people as possible emerge from the mess our government has put us in.

As I’ve said: The fewer people who have to rely on the government for help, the better off we'll all be.

This is what I'm doing personally... for myself, my family, and my business. And it's exactly what you should do too

When I send you your copy of America 2020—The New Crisis, there are three other Research Reports I've been working on that I want to give you immediate access to as well, all totally free of charge.

They are...

Research REPORT #1:
How the Rich Make a Fortune During a Credit Crisis.

In this report, I want to show you a strategy used by some of the wealthiest people in America. David Tepper, for example, used it after the market crash of 2008—his entire portfolio went up 120% (after fees) that year. This has nothing to do with shorting or trading options or anything risky like that.

The Tax-Free Way to Make 500% Gains in America

As inflation builds, this strategy could be a life-saver. It’s a way for you to get money OUT of the financial markets, into something real… and potentially sell for several times your initial investment, while keeping most or even all of the gains, totally tax-free.

How to Reduce Your Taxes by 90%, Without Leaving America.

Broke governments do truly desperate things. And while Trump is reducing taxes over the next few years, in a crisis, rates could soar. You should at least know about a radical strategy, which several of my colleagues have taken advantage of. It requires a few major changes, but is the only way I know of to legally reduce your taxes by 90%.

Like I said, all three (3) of these Research Reports are totally FREE of charge.

I'll also give you a free 30-day trial subscription to my monthly research report, called Stansberry's Investment Advisory.

In my monthly research report, I will regularly update you on the continued collapse of our currency and rising interest rates—I’ll tell exactly what these things mean for you and your money.

My Investment Advisory Service, which you'll receive on the first Friday of every month, is the perfect way to stay up-to-date on what’s taking place in America right now.

You'll pay just $19 to get all this Research delivered to your doorstep.

I can't imagine there's a better deal anywhere in the financial world.

If you like our work, great -- I hope you'll want to keep reading our research and insights in the future. We'll bill your card a fully-refundable 1-year subscription fee of $149 after your 30-day free trial is over.

I think you'll benefit substantially from receiving our work over the next few years... but like I said, if it's not for you, no problem.

By paying just $19 today, you'll at least have the information you need to protect yourself from the disaster taking place.

Plus, you'll receive access to a bundle of bonus Research Reports and a free thirty-day trial subscription to my monthly research letter, Stansberry's Investment AdvisoryAnd you are under no obligation whatsoever to buy anything else from me or my firm in the future.

It's also important to keep in mind that: All of the steps I am recommending you take to protect yourself are simple, cheap, and easy... at least for now.

But that will change very quickly as events unfold.

I know, most people reading this will do nothing. They'll say to themselves: "I'll deal with this problem when the time comes."

Many of my friends, colleagues, and family members are still in serious denial about a major currency crisis in the United States. But this is natural...

In the world of psychology, they call this the "normalcy bias."

You see, the normalcy bias actually refers to our natural reactions when facing a crisis.

It causes smart people to underestimate the possibility of a disaster and its effects. People believe that because something has never happened before... it never will. We are all guilty of it... it's just human nature.

We’ve lived with rising bond prices, falling interest rates, and a world dominated by the U.S. dollar for more than 30 years.

Most Americans have no idea how quickly this could all change. As Barton Biggs reported in his definitive book, Wealth, War, and Wisdom:

People "almost always are too complacent, because they cherish the illusion that when things start to go bad, they will have time to extricate themselves... It never works that way. Events move much faster than anyone expects... History usually doesn't evolve in a slow and orderly way; often it leaps forward in disorderly, chaotic jumps."

This point is: Take the simple and critical steps now, while it's all safe, cheap, easy, and 100% legal. Don't wait. We’ve entered a major turning point in U.S. history… and it’s critical to position yourself accordingly.

You can learn everything you need to know simply by requesting a copy of my America 2020—The New Crisis.
