  • The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority - Henrik Ibsen.

  • The mainstream (corporate) media is nothing less than the unofficial accomplice of the banking crime syndicate which is running/ruining our markets and economies. Nowhere is this despicable relationship more apparent than in its deliberate efforts to grossly misinform investors on the critical subject of risk.

    Jeff Nielsen

  • The business of investing rationally becomes problematic when market participants are pursuing maximum nominal returns without a second thought as to the real (inflation-adjusted) value of those returns and the location of the savings.

  • Comparing the currencies is like picking the prettiest horse in the glue factory. The history of all fiat currencies shows they all end up being valueless. Gold’s nobody else’s liability and it has no counterparty risk. It’s provided protection against destruction of wealth for centuries and we’re at the cusp of another major chapter in its illustrious history.

NICARAGUA on the beach

better than Costa Rica...cheaper than Miami and away from socialism

A Bargain-Ripe Coast That’s Yours For the Taking

While tourist numbers grew steadily in Nicaragua over the last three years, property prices didn’t. A million visitors traveled to Nicaragua in 2010…and it's rated as one of the top destinations to visit in 2011 by Lonely Planet, Travel Agewest and Shermans Travel. Yet, you can snap up beachfront properties here for less than half of what you’d pay in Panama or Costa Rica. There’s a reason for that…In the first half of this decade, property speculators rushed to Nicaragua, buying the finest beachfront and oceanfront land, hoping to cash in on the boom. Then the U.S. housing market stalled, and buyers dried up. Today, some owners of lots and condos (mainly North American) need to sell their property to shore up their finances back home. And that means property bargains and exciting opportunities…from a third-acre lot a short stroll from a white-sand beach for $25,000…to a three-acre spread in a private community with privacy and wide ocean views for $135,000…or a two-bedroom true beachfront condo (with the beach right outside your front door) for $179,000.
If that’s not enough to convince you to put Nicaragua on your shortlist of second-home destinations, here are five more reasons why you should consider this country:

  1. The coastline. Put simply, it's stunning.

    Unlike much of Panama or Mexico, the coastline here is not flat. Sharp forest-clad cliffs fall to the rippling waves of the deep-blue Pacific, with ribbons of gorgeous sandy beach in between. The cliffs and hills close to the shore give dramatic, expansive ocean views. And the price of beachfront here is as dreamy as the views.
  2. It's easy to get to. You can fly direct to Managua, Nicaragua's capital city, from many locations in the U.S. From Miami, it takes just two hours and 40 minutes. That’s important not just for you…but also for future buyers and renters. Your home is more desirable if it’s within a two hour drive of an international airport, and if that airport has regular, direct flights to the U.S. And when you’re talking property, more desirable means higher potential sale price, and lots more renters.
  3. Its natural beauty. Towering, smoldering volcanoes...virgin rainforest and cloud forest...old colonial cities...pristine islands...pounding surf...and enormous freshwater lakes teeming with exotic wildlife. Up close, Nicaragua boasts dramatic landscapes that easily hold their own against Costa Rica’s. It's just not as well-known. That's mainly down to the lack of a Costa Rican-style tourism marketing machine. But as I mentioned, Nicaragua’s tourism figures are steadily increasing. More tourists means more travelers coming here…needing a place to stay…and wanting to own a piece of Nicaragua. That bodes well for property appreciation and rentability.
  4. It's not mainstream yet...but it is fun. Savor a leisurely lunch in a shady plaza in the colonial city of Granada...

    …surf the Pacific waves...snorkel the coral reefs and clear Caribbean waters of the Corn Islands...trek through a cloud forest...sail or fish on Lake Nicaragua. Or simply relax in a locally-made hammock or rocker, in the tranquility of a tropical afternoon...
  5. The value. Nicaragua is one of the lowest-cost countries in the region. You can afford to eat out regularly, and hire household help. Residency comes with a low income requirement of just $600 a month. And there’s that low-cost property to factor in, too.
