Berwick is the author of the book Shemitah Trends:The Plot to Enslave Humanity and How to Find Freedom which details the financial elite's use of biblical timelines that coincide with major financial market calamities.
In 2013, Berwick announced his plans to co-found the world's first bitcoin automated teller machine (ATM) in Cyprus. Business Insider called the plans "bogus" and "almost certainly nonsense." Berwick responded that the plans were legitimate.
In 2013, Berwick was a promoter of Galt's Gulch Chile project, a libertarian enclave in the Curacaví region of Chile that did not come to fruition as envisioned. He was also part of an attempt to start a free-trade zone in Honduras.
