If you’ve been around the stock industry these past few weeks, chances are that you’ve come across the name Paul Mampilly.
In recent days, he’s been in the spotlight for his idea of America 2.0, and maybe you’ve been curious about getting involved with it.
But is it legit or some type of scam? America 2.0 is not a scam, but it isn’t a product, either. It’s the concept that a new revolution is going to sweep the country and result in an unprecedented economic boom. Mampilly offers his insights on which stocks to invest in with this concept in mind in his newsletter Profits Unlimited.
With that in mind, let’s take a deeper look into the concept of America 2.0, who’s behind it, and if you should invest money in stocks backed by this concept.
Who is Paul Mampilly?
Before we explain about America 2.0, let’s take a look at the man behind the idea.
Paul Mampilly is a stock investor and analyzer who works with a company called Banyan Hill. You can purchase services from him in which he gives his personal insights as to which stocks are going to hit big and which stocks to avoid.
Mampilly began his career in 1991 as a research assistant for the Deutsche Bank. He then began advancing through the positions of different companies. After 25 years, in 2006, he was approached and asked to be the manager of the hedge fund of a $3 billion firm.
He started investing in companies like Netflix and Google, and the assets of the hedge fund soared to $25 billion. He began garnering a lot of attention – particularly that of a prestigious foundation that was having an investment competition.
This foundation wanted to see what investors could do with $50 million, and Paul was invited to compete. He ended up winning the competition, making a 76% return during the 2008 economic crisis.
After years of working, he was able to retire early at the age of 42. Now, he lives in Raleigh, North Carolina and manages his own investment services. His net worth is said to be $50 million.
He’s earned this net worth through his different investments and, now, by selling his trade and investment secrets and tips to subscribers of his newsletters.
One such newsletter is called Profits Unlimited: A Wall Street Insider Reveals the Secret to Life-Changing Wealth. Which tells his story on Wall Street and how he began making the money that he is and gives insights into starting on that path yourself.
What is America 2.0?
The first thing to note is that America 2.0 isn’t a product, it’s a concept.
Essentially, Paul Mampilly thinks that we are on the verge of a manufacturing and economic boom. He thinks all of the “mega trends” he’s seeing will lead to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is what he’s dubbing as America 2.0.
He also says, “Citizens from every edge of our great nation — from farmers to doctors and from 10-year-olds to 100-year-olds — will reap the benefits as the Dow soars to 100,000 and real estate doubles.”
So, here we can see that this concept is a bold one.
Keep in mind that, currently, the Dow is at just under 29,000, and that’s the highest it has been in history. That’s just over a quarter of the 100,000 that Paul Mampilly thinks it will get to.
You can learn all his thoughts about America 2.0 and what companies he thinks are going to be big when it comes around by subscribing to his Profits Unlimited newsletter.
This is kind of similar to how other Banyan Hill newsletters work.
For example, we recently reviewed a subscription from Charles Mizrahi, who also works for Banyan Hill. He created a video where he talks about a $15.7 trillion revolution, and eventually leads you into buying his subscription, the Alpha Investor Report. And order to learn about that “revolution”, you need to buy the subscription.
What Is Profits Unlimited?
Profits Unlimited is a subscription that gives you information weekly on current trends and investing in technology. With this subscription, you’ll receive a report with advice on what to invest in and what to sell in stocks every month.
There are three tiers of subscriptions you can get:
The standard is the lowest subscription and includes only a digital copy of Profits Unlimited. This includes Paul Mampilly’s, “No. 1 Stock Pick,” and “The Blacklist.”
The No. 1 Stock Pick is Mampilly’s top company he thinks you should invest in; and The Blacklist is a list of 100 companies that are “deemed safe by the experts, but in reality, they are not prepared for America 2.0.”
The deluxe is the same as the standard, but it also includes a printed copy of all the information, not just the digital format.
The premium is the highest subscription and comes with a digital copy, print copy and three bonus reports, titled:
- 3 Stocks to Retire a Multimillionaire
- How to Make 1,000% in America’s Next Energy Megatrend
- How to Ride AI’s 76,000% Surge to Massive Profits
All of these subscriptions are for one year and they automatically renew after that year is up, which is an option you can stop at any time.
So basically, this newsletter is designed to help you make money by sharing some of Mampilly’s insights into the stock market and giving you advice on where to invest and where to steer away from.
How Does It Work?
In order to get started with Profits Unlimited to begin learning about America 2.0, all you have to do is go to Paul Mampilly’s website and buy your subscription.
You’ll get the digital format of the information via email, and if you get a printed copy, that will be mailed to the mailing address you put in when you signed up.

How Much Does It Cost?
The cost varies based on the tier you chose, and they break down as follows:
- Standard: $47
- Deluxe: $129
- Premium: $79
It seems a little backwards that the premium, which includes more, is cheaper than the deluxe, but according to the sign up page, the premium subscription is normally $496, but it’s discounted (which, to me, seems like just a sales tactic).
And if you’re worried about spending the money and not liking the results, they do have a money back guarantee for this subscription.
It’s a one-year, 100% satisfaction guarantee. The website states that if you try Profits Unlimited for the year and aren’t satisfied, you just give them a call and they will issue you a full refund for your subscription price.
So, this money back guarantee seems a lot more honest and safe than some others we’ve reviewed, which is a good sign and should make you feel more comfortable if you want to give it a try.
Is America 2.0 a Scam?
America 2.0 is not a scam because it is essentially just a concept, and you don’t have to pay money for an idea.
But is the Profits Unlimited newsletter a scam?
No, because you’re paying for a subscription and you get those subscription materials. It’s basically like a magazine subscription – available in either digital or printed formats.
But just because it’s not a scam doesn’t mean that it’s going to work or that it’ll be a guaranteed success.
The problem is that it hinges on the concept of a totally revolutionized society. And while we are seeing things that he’s mentioned, like the integration of digital homes, other things seem like a far way from happening – if they ever do – like fleets of self-driving cars.
Some people argue that self-driving cars are the next big thing, but there’s some evidence that we might be farther away than some might like to think.
For example, Tesla’s Autopilot was known to be engaged during three fatal crashes that took place in the United States.
There was also the self-driving Uber car in 2018 that hit and killed a pedestrian who was jaywalking, because self-driving Uber cars don’t have “the capability to classify an object as a pedestrian” unless it’s near a crosswalk.
The point is, if we aren’t on the precipice of “America 2.0,” then some of his recommendations might not pan out like he hopes.
And once again, America 2.0 being successful the way Mampilly sees it would also mean that the Dow would have to more than triple what it is currently at, which is the highest it’s been in history.
So, even though it isn’t a scam, it’s a personal choice as to whether or not you should spend your time and money on this.
Just keep in mind that a lot of the success will ride on the correct prediction of the concept America 2.0, so that should be something you personally believe is going to happen if you choose to get involved with this.
Summing It Up
In the end, even though it isn’t a scam, there is no guarantee that you are going to make any money from America 2.0 and the Profits Unlimited subscription.
But if you did want to give it a try, it is only a $47 subscription, which works out to only a little less than $4 a month.
But maybe be cautious about taking Paul Mampilly’s advice as 100% accurate. Stocks are a volatile thing which are affected by many different factors.
So if you do decide to get this subscription, maybe don’t jump in head-first and dump hundreds of thousands of dollars into the stocks that he recommends. It’s always safer to start off with smaller investments, and to only invest money you can afford to lose.
No one can predict the turns of the economy or which stocks will do well with 100% accuracy. Yes, a lot of people make a lot of money in stocks, but there is always a risk involved.
And while people like Mampilly might have sound advice – and maybe he’s right about the whole America 2.0 thing – it would be wise to proceed with caution.
