Every Privateer is divided into four sections, which between them cover much more than just the latest happenings on the financial markets. We are fundamentally concerned with the underlying ideas which shape the way nations interact, the way economies and markets work, and the way individuals prosper or decline on the basis of their ability to choose and act.
We hold that the fundamental reason behind the present chaos in global relations, in trade, in financial interactions, and in markets themselves is an "absence". What is absent, or missing, is the freedom to choose and act, the security of private property, and the use of sound money. That is the fundamental premise on which The Privateer bases all its analysis.
This is the heart of each issue of The Privateer. It is a five-page section dealing with the issues which we consider to be the most important in analysing the global financial and economic situation. The presentation is in depth and the analysis is always reasoned to conclusions.
INSIDE THE U.S.A.
The U.S. remains the most important nation in the world. It is the home of the world's largest economy and an even bigger stock market. It is the world's richest nation. It carries the world's largest debt. And it is the home of the world's reserve currency, the U.S. Dollar.
INSIDE JAPAN - AND CHINA
China is the most populous nation on earth. Japan is a nation where the grounds of the Imperial Palace once had a higher land "value" than the entire State of California. These are the two giants of the Asian Pacific Rim.
INSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION
Continental Europe is the cradle of Western civilization but the world's youngest economic "superpower" as they progress towards a single currency and political unity for the first time since the collapse of the Roman Empire.

THE GLOBAL MARKET REPORT
The focus is usually on the U.S., the most important market in the world. This is the equivalent of "The Global Report" - on the markets.
Major market movements over the past two weeks. What have been the major factors moving markets and which markets have been moved the most.
The Privateer does not set "targets" for the markets. This section lists the major events over the next reporting period which are most likely to have an influence on investors.
