    Making Waves

    “Your complaint is your call to action.”
    ~ Jason Bawden-Smith

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    Creative destruction is upon us – the shift between Global 2.0 (an industrial economy) and Global 3.0 (a networked economy) is accelerating.

    So what happens when productivity rises dramatically? If the application of online and new technologies creates $1 of income by destroying/saving $20 or more of existing income/expense, how is that supposed to work?

    Here are several examples in the recent article Why Every Aspect of Your Business is About to Change:

    • Skype brought in approximately $2 billion in 2013. McKinsey calculated that in that year Skype transferred $37 billion away from old-guard telecom firms.
    • San Francisco’s taxi regulator reported that the number of fares per licensed cab fell 65% from March 2012 to July 2014 as Uber, Lyft, and others entered the market.
    • When Airbnb entered Austin, Texas, hotel revenue fell by 8% to 10% according to Boston University researchers.

    What is the process by which we invent new enterprises using the capacity that is now available? While we are at it, how do we reinvent a more peaceful economy, operating in a positive relationship with each other and our environment?

    It’s called entrepreneurship – and it’s time for a lot more of it. This is despite the fact that the US and most of the G-7 political and economic leadership are doing a great deal to centralize control…which handicaps entrepreneurs and potential investors.

    This week, Jason Bawden-Smith publishes his business biography, Making Waves. It describes how he founded four companies focused on solving environmental problems.  Jason’s achievements include introducing technology into Australia which reduced lead poisoning in children and lessened the impact of excessive exploration and mining activities.

    To celebrate the launch of Making Waves, Jason will join me on the Solari Report this week to discuss entrepreneurship in changing times.

    For Let’s Go to the Movies, we’ll take a look at Nick Hanauer’s TED Speech:

    The wealth potential — if we reinvigorate trust and markets, including the free flow of local and entrepreneurial capital — is significant. We don’t have to let a deflationary spiral take hold.

    Please join Jason Bawden-Smith and me on the Solari Report this week to discuss how we can do it.

    The Fiscal Cliff

    [CAF Note: Budget issues are in the news as a result of the US Presidential primaries. In response to numerous questions, I am republishing my piece on the obstacles to a very desirable and necessary revolution in federal fiscal policy.]

    by Catherine Austin Fitts

    Ultimately, the fiscal cliff is the tip of the iceberg of our economic and cultural woes. Our problems are deeper. The more of us who are prepared to look honestly at our situation and take responsibility for it, the sooner authentic solutions will become possible and emerge.

    As we look over the fiscal cliff into our financial abyss, now is a good time to “Come Clean” about the real state of our lives, our communities, and our economy, starting with the U.S. federal finances that flow deeply and intimately throughout every aspect of our lives.

    This Solari Special Report includes (22) challenges we must address to put our federal fiscal house in order.

    “Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.”
    ~ Winston Churchill

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    A “saker” is a large migratory falcon that breeds from Eastern Europe across Asia. It is a more than appropriate handle for the Saker, the military analyst who “flies” from Vineyard of the Saker — my preferred website covering the geopolitical dance between Russia and the US and the emergence of a multipolar world.

    Saker has just published a marvelous collection of his posts entitled The Essential Saker: From the Trenches of the Emerging Multipolar World.

    For anyone who wants to understand the flow of events in Russia and Eastern Europe, you will find this week’s interview and the Saker’s writings a rich, fascinating contribution:

    “I think it’s a war — personally, I think Russia and the US are at war. And it’s a war for the future of civilization quite literally because the two models are incompatible. And one of them will have to collapse and be replaced by the other one. It’s unclear to me which one it will be, but that’s how deep it is now.”

    “And there is another phenomena: these people [the Western leadership] project their own mindset onto others. For instance, you probably remember that statement that Hilary Clinton made (I think it was in Scotland or in Ireland) that Putin is trying to rebuild the Soviet Union. And that’s laughable. It’s pathetic. You wonder who her advisers are. Russia has no need or use for a Soviet Union. As a matter of fact, everyone in Russia knows that. There is ridiculous talk today about Russia either planning to invade the Ukraine or now they say Poland and the Baltics — it’s laughable. But the thing is, this is what they would probably do if they changed places. Not only are they dead set on never negotiating but only submitting people, but they assume that everybody functions like they do.”

    In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the documentary Sacred Stage which tells the story of the historic Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, a symbol of culture that’s managed to outlast war, revolution and the fall of Communism.

    Mariinsky Theatre

    [Reposting as  Blowout Sale is On.]

    “If my cuisine were to be defined by just one taste, it would be that of subtle, aromatic, extra-virgin olive oil.” ~ Alain Ducasse

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    I am one of those people who are perpetually in search of the finest olive oil and balsamic vinegar to make – among other things – the perfect salad. I have never found an olive oil to top my favorite – Barbàra Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sicily. There is something about olives that come from trees that are hundreds of years old – some said to be even a thousand years old.

    Their US importer just launched their website so the oil is now readily accessible to retail.

    Enjoy!
