He edits a newish investment letter called Addison Wiggins Apogee Advisory. It’s a macro newsletter which only occasional gives specific investment advice.
If you read Agora’s free daily emails the recommendations won’t be much of a surprise.
While I fundamentally disagree with his conclusions I find him an interesting read. If you are looking for specific investment advice I would say its best to look elsewhere.

I have just read the report cited. Selling a news letter in todays competitive market is difficult. However, as a long time reader and sometime subscriber to Agora, I discern consistency . Over the last several years, Bonnrers plan to sell shares and purchase precious metals has been extremely profitable. Given the unknown reactio to crisis and percieved crisis by the Fed and Adminstration, I feel very defensive. I anticipate QE3 in smaller doses. The just passed extension of FICA savings is an example. 100 B will be avaiable for cosumption. Will the Fed hesitate, in an eletion year, fail… Read more »

purchased the newsletter a month ago – late starter- lost my job so i am finally able to read and understand this whole investment thing. i find it sorely disappointing. his initial pitch was very convincing and i thought i’d be getting intelligent information in a NEWSLETTER…instead i get a very politically slanted verbal/video doom messages with little viable information in it.
just my opinion…
i do like the Gold Prices and Silver Prices emails, Chris Martenson, Streetwise Report, David Morgan, Stockgumshoe and research on the net!!!

You have to keep in mind that most of these newsletter writers would like nothing better than to go back to the gold standard and pretty much all of them have a libertarian bent. Obviously that’ll colour some of their recommendation especially with a letter such as this which is very macro oriented.

I have followed the commentary from Wiggin and Bonner for years. I am an economics MA and I happen to agree with them. If Keynesian economics as currently practised was going to work Japan would not be where it is today. Japan been following the classic Keynesian script for 20 years – its a bust. Just as an aside: Keynes himself warned it would be. He said his methods would work best first time – less well thereafter – and he feared governments would get addicted to spending more than their income. He was obviously correct. Please read the excellent… Read more »

thank you for the book tip…i am willing to do my own study, it helps to have a tip in direction (nursing was my field so WAY out of this subject, however… focused on doing my study)

i don’t necessarily disagree with the politics, just i felt it was given to me enough in the first “pitch” that i understood ideology, now give me substance to make some choices about investment so i can go research…that what i was looking for in the newsletter, not a lot of teasers that leave me hangin’ as where to start.

I guess you are in the US, Monica. In that case Bonner & Wiggin’s advice boils down to have 2/3 of your money invested in companies that earn most of their income outside the US. What you have invested in US domestic stocks should pay good dividends like MLPs. Outside the US look for compaines in mining, food production, energy transmission. Bonner also recommends owning physical gold that is held in Canada or Australia outside the reach of Uncle Sam. I live in the UK so the political risk is different. But I too look for most investments to be… Read more »

ian, checking out those companies…thank you for a morning of research. i really liked the new britain palm oil and their focus on sustainability, participation in world economic forum (awards in 2011) price range!!! 😉 and antofagasta – there is much on gold silver mines but i think copper is of interest to me as well….and again, i have to look at my own family’s finances and go from there. still researchin’ just wanted to give a wink!!!

I trust Wiggins like I trust any politician. He sold me on “Iceland biotech-can’t miss” years ago. Decode Genetics was the loser. Thanks for your contributions everyone.

I just subscribed to the Apogee Advisory, in order to get the free Little Book of the Shrinking Dollar book. The two free reports can be summarized easily: “Use Everbank for currency diversification.” and “Use gold to keep your money away from the Feds (maybe).” I know this is a macro newsletter, but the description says “Each month, you’ll have specific recommendations to protect your wealth and profit from everything you’ll learn.” I haven’t read the back issues yet, but the current issue appears to have a couple in-progress trades (both currently at a loss) which aren’t tracked in the… Read more »

I want to thank everyone who posted here. I recently received a 20 page booklet from Mr. Wiggin, and I’ve never heard of him. So before I sent him money, I wanted to hear from others about this deal. Your feeback has convinced me that it’s probably not worth the money, so I think I will pass.
The only thing that really interested me was his special report titled, “set it and forget it.” Anything to it, anyone?

I received an Addison Wiggin insert dated Jan.2013 that also mentions his “set it and forget it” teaser, with its “two secret steps.” I too am curious whether anybody knows anything on this…

I just got another solicitation for this newsletter. It looks an awful lot like Agora, which I thought was awful.
I’ve had my absolute fill of these far-right doom-and-gloom Republican rags. They all have far more to say about politics than investing. I want to get a good return on my investment, not listening to some windbag harp on the guvmint and tell me the sky is falling.
I’ll say one thing for them though – they sure are popular. Just like Limbaugh, Hanniity, and Beck, and for the same reasons.

I have been a reader of Bonner’s daily reckoning for awhile. It is often nothing more than a hype for a newsletter deal or video. But, I find much of his musings hit a nerve lately. With the US debt past the 16Trillion mark and unemployment over 20%, and our dollars so over inflated, I do fear hyperinflation in the next few years if something doesn’t happen to the drunken spending spree of the Federal government. Let’s pray that Americans will wake up from their Fed induced stupor in time to vote out Obama before we are turned into a… Read more »

I have been swayed by the sheer maths of the “debt pile is to big to climb” arguement and I have about 55% of my assets in allocated gold, still waiting for the bubble (thats what it will be) to start inflating, Bill Bonner says that it is starting. Can anyone explain exactly what his “set it and forget it” advice actually is?? While we’re on the subject what do you think of the latest hype, that on Jan 1st the banks can count all thier gold at face value instead of 50% at present. The arguement goes that this… Read more »

I believe he is hinting at the probable change to the composition of U.S. nickles and pennies. There was a report out earlier in the year from Geitner in which he talked of how the Treasury Dept. could save 200-300 million a year by changing the composition of these coins. I can’t say I am 100% correct but that is what I have concluded from what little research I have done on the subject.

This is June 15, 2014 and Addison’s report on how US Nickels are really worth 7 or 8 cents is, I found, not currently true. Look at Coinflation.com and see their online calculator to see what metals are currently worth. I checked today and a $100 worth of nickels is worth $95 !!! And, of course, you could get bags of them on the internet and pay a 12% premium!!

Not my idea of stellar research…
