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.
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.

“Success doesn’t necessarily come from breakthrough innovation but from flawless execution. A great strategy alone won’t win a game or a battle; the win comes from basic blocking and tackling.” ~ Naveen Jain

Australian entrepreneur Mark Dansie travels the world evaluating new technology claims, implementing the chosen few and reporting on his website Revolution Green. He specializes in magnetic motor and HHO gas evaluations, but also reviews a wide range of energy and related technologies. I met Mark at the Global BEM conference and was impressed at his command of the practical issues involved in bringing a new technology to market.
Mark’s catch phrase is “show me the data.” Previously, Mark studied Industrial Design at the Adelaide School of Arts, managed several commercial businesses at an Australian University including the Press, Communications and Internet company and served as CEO of a regional public housing company in Australia.
Key points to consider from our discussion:
I asked Mark to join me on the Solari Report after getting a number of requests on how to handle the practical challenges of launching breakthrough technology projects. He was in the Philippines when we spoke and our call reception was less than ideal. We will get a printed transcript up for this report as soon as possible in the hopes that reading is easier.
This is the last week of the month so we will not have a Money & Markets segment. I will be back next week, reporting from Sydney, Australia where I will be speaking on the subject of Planet Debt.
Please join me on the Solari Report this week! You can learn more about becoming a subscriber here…

Monday was one of the most inspiring days of my time “down under.” I had the opportunity to visit the Ficino School in Auckland. Ficino was founded in 1997 by leadership from the School of Philosophy.
Ficino is named for Marsilio Ficino, an Italian scholar and priest who was one of the most influential humanist philosophers of the Italian Renaissance. A student and translator of Plato, Ficino emphasized the divinity and immortality of Man’s soul and the personal relationship between Man and God.
The morning started with the assembly of all 98 students from grades 1-8 lead by principal Peter Crompton. The students recited the school values:
Washington, Nov. 21, 1864
To Mrs. Bixby, Boston, Mass.
I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts, that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle.
I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.
I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom.
Yours very sincerely and respectfully
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

A wonderful audience turned out yesterday to support the Ficino Educational Trust lecture series at the University of Auckland Business School. I gave a presentation on the re-balancing of the global economy. A fascinating Q&A period followed. The conversation continued with a smaller group over dinner.
I promised to post the slides as well as the audio of the lecture/Q&A as soon at it is ready and related links that came up in the Q&A and dinner discussion.
