      February 19, 2013
      Santiago, Chile

      In another brilliant move aimed at destroying the few table scraps of economic freedom which remain in the Land of the Free, a bipartisan group of esteemed lawmakers in the United States Congress has introduced the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013.

      Remember the golden rule of legislation: the more noble the name of the law sounds, the more disastrous its results. This one is no exception.

      Generally speaking in the United States, retailers must collect state and local sales tax at the point of sale. When you walk into a Main Street shop in Anytown, California, you'll pay the sticker price PLUS hefty city and state sales taxes that can easily be 10% or more.

      But if you purchase goods through the mail from a company in, say, Nevada or Oregon, either through the mail or online, no sales tax is charged. This goes back to a 20+ year old US Supreme Court decision which exempted out of state companies from collecting sales tax.

      Well, according to the intellectual luminaries in Congress, local retailers are at a disadvantage, effectively having to charge 10%+ more for their products than an out-of-state retailer.

      And by God, they're going to do something about it. After all, it's just not 'fair' that mom and pop retailers on main street have to charge sales tax, while mom and pop retailers on the Internet do not.

      The Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 aims to level the playing field by requiring online retailers to collect some sort of sales tax from their customers. Needless to say, if the bill is passed, it will be the customer who ends up paying the price.

      The thinking on this is completely absurd.

      One of the primary reasons people shop online is because online retailers have reduced overhead costs, and these cost savings are passed along to consumers in the form of lower prices.

      So if the idea is to ensure that brick and mortar retailers don't suffer any competitive price disadvantage, why not just regulate prices altogether? Or even better, why not just abolish sales taxes altogether?

      That's because this bill has absolutely nothing to do with fairness, and everything to do with the government taking more of your money. This bill constitutes STEP 1 on the road to a national sales tax, which, given the state of national and state balance sheets, is a financial inevitability.

      It's the most insidious form of deceit-- creating new taxes masquerading as 'fairness'. It's a total fraud, brought to you by the same people who tell us that there is no inflation, and that we must sexually assault airline passengers in order to protect ourselves from men in caves.

      Have you hit your breaking point yet?

      Meet the guy who can help you make a killing in Chilean property


      In last month's edition of Sovereign Man: Confidential Simon Black provided subscribers with some of the solutions for the looming agricultural challenges that are affecting food production, as well as an overview of the best places in the world to own high-quality farmland. On top of that, a groundbreaking solution was announced to ship your precious metals to the industry's leading innovator Silver Bullion in Singapore.


      This month's issue includes:


      a.. An interview with a Chicago-born real-estate investor who lost everything by betting against a bailed-out U.S. property market in 2008-- then recouped many times more by investing in off-the-radar real-estate in Chile. He can help you do the same.
      a.. An extensive boots on the ground account from Ecuador. The country is still incredibly cheap and continues to operate on mañana time. For some people it ticks all the boxes required.
      a.. Ecuadorian real-estate can be an incredible value for money. Some of it is literally dirt-cheap. You can buy a house for only its construction cost, and get acres of very productive agricultural land for free.
      a.. The extensive coverage of the country also includes updated information on the various ways to obtain residency in Ecuador. The barrier to entry is very low, and, if you want to live there, you can become eligible for citizenship after only three years.
      a.. This month's issue also includes a thorough overview of buying & selling gold and silver bullion in Hong Kong. From coins to bars, from collectibles and jewelry to ingots-- everything is covered, including storage.
      a.. The lengthy Q&A section tackles issues such as traveling with gold internationally, the ins and outs of taxation on worldwide income, and corporate tax rates and labor costs in Chile.

        J. Keen Holland WWP Email Member and Construction Equipment Owner (OldPolitico@...) The better approach might be to compel retailers to report to state authorities the names and addresses of customers who were not charged sales tax at point of sale. Then the state could send them a bill for it (it is called sales and use tx for a reason). The problem predates the internet. It has long been considered a problem by PA revenue authorities that our citizens buy big ticket items in NJ where the retailer writes up the purchase as having been delivered in PA - that way neither state gets the tax.
