  • In recent years there have been methods developed to decentralize investing. We take a close look at crowdfunding, the legal issues and dangers involved, and how to approach it as an entrepreneur. Crowdfunding is an important step forward in supporting both small and large efforts for the individual and groups alike.

    This Solari Special Report includes legal pathways to help navigate these new developments.

    “It is certainly desirable that all societies have systems by which to guard their core values, and that justice and peace be preserved…But the values needed to ensure these things lie beyond the realm of the law, in ethics and culture and religion.” ~ John Laughland

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    John Laughland is Director of Studies at the Institut de la Démocratie et de la Coopération  (The Institute of Democracy and Cooperation) in Paris. John is a British historian, author, philosopher, and journalist widely respected for his expertise in international law, his analysis of European and global politics and his efforts to promote the rule of law.

    This week on The Solari Report, John joins me to discuss the state of Europe and the future of the US-European relationships.  Given continued struggles to manage debt loads and popular backlash against austerity programs, tensions in NATO, fighting in Ukraine, sanctions against Russia and the ramifications for the European economy, an influx of immigration from the Muslim countries, triggered in no small part by US wars in the Middle East,  continental Europe is managing challenging times.

    I know of no one better to address these issues. I first heard John speak after the publication in 1997 of his book The Tainted Source: Undemocratic Origins of the European Idea. His brilliant insights regarding the flaws of the European Union have more than stood the test of time. For background, access our previous report with John here.

    This is the last week of the month, so our next Money & Markets will be posted next week on Thursday, February 1.

    Enjoy!

    Inside the secret network behind mass surveillance, endless war, and Skynet

    by Nafeez Ahmed

    INSURGE INTELLIGENCE, a new crowd-funded investigative journalism project, breaks the exclusive story of how the United States intelligence community funded, nurtured and incubated Google as part of a drive to dominate the world through control of information. Seed-funded by the NSA and CIA, Google was merely the first among a plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘information superiority.’

    The origins of this ingenious strategy trace back to a secret Pentagon-sponsored group, that for the last two decades has functioned as a bridge between the US government and elites across the business, industry, finance, corporate, and media sectors. The group has allowed some of the most powerful special interests in corporate America to systematically circumvent democratic accountability and the rule of law to influence government policies, as well as public opinion in the US and around the world. The results have been catastrophic: NSA mass surveillance, a permanent state of global war, and a new initiative to transform the US military into Skynet.

    Once Isis got near oil fields, the US sent drones to strike targets

    by Tom Bawden

    Conspiracy theorists have long insisted that modern wars revolve around oil. Now research suggests hydrocarbons play an even bigger role in conflicts than they had suspected.

    According to academics from the Universities of Portsmouth, Warwick and Essex, foreign intervention in a civil war is 100 times more likely when the afflicted country has high oil reserves than if it has none. The research is the first to confirm the role of oil as a dominant motivating factor in conflict, suggesting hydrocarbons were a major reason for the military intervention in Libya, by a coalition which included the UK, and the current US campaign against Isis in northern Iraq.

    by Ahmed Bilal

    One of the major reasons that solar panels are facing such hurdles to replace conventional electricity sources is because they are very inefficient. The most efficient (and most expensive) panel is currently somewhere around 32 percent efficiency. However, scientists in Switzerland have figured out a way to utilize Graphene in solar panel design, raising its efficiency to an absolutely staggering 60% – a finally feasible amount.

    The experiment was conducted by a team from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and no I cannot pronounce that and they were able to convert a single photon into electorns, producing an electric current. They did this by placing a thin layer of Graphene into an ultra high vacuum chamber. Electrons were subtracted and added chemically before the process (graphene doping). Then, it was blasted with a super fast pulse of laser light which excited the electrons in Graphene and put the whole material into a higher energy state. Since electric conduction is relative the new state was higher than before, resulting in current, and once again as it reverted back to its old state. This phenomenon can then be conducted as an electric current and used for power, and it all happens in a matter of femtoseconds, so a few quadrillionths of a second.
