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.

By Catherine Austin Fitts
One of the most remarkable aspects of my life so far is the number of times that I have faced death – call them “almost near death experiences.” A healer once told me that there were more than a few people who found it baffling, even terrifying, that I was alive and well.
One of the blessings of such circumstances is that I have made friends with death. In a favorite movie, the hero says “Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.” Indeed if you can smile at death, including your own, you free yourself from a world of worries, many instilled in our culture for the sole purpose of creating dependency and selling commercial and financial products. You step into a more meaningful and lively life.
This week on The Solari Report, I will speak with author and attorney Jo Kline Cebuhar about her new novel Exit that tells the story of life and death in a hospice in Iowa. Jo will share her recommendations for building our skill sets at managing the end-of-life, whether our own or of those we love. We will also touch base on her remarkable work on health care proxies [See our last Solari Report with Jo] and ethical wills.
It’s the last week of the month so no Money & Markets. I will be driving across the Southwest, after joining subscribers for lunch in Albuquerque next Wednesday.
For Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend To Dance With The White Dog, a movie made from the book of the same title. Love does not end with death. Indeed, some of us continue to communicate with those we love after they die and we may join them when we do. To Dance with the White Dog tells such a tale.
Talk to you Thursday!

I recently had the opportunity to interview Scott Tips on my nationally syndicated radio show, Uncommon Awareness. He gave a great interview and I became an instant fan and supporter of National Health Federation due to their humanitarian work and success on our (the people’s) behalf with the Codex Alimentarius Commission meetings.
I began radio about a year ago out of a desire to help raise awareness of what is actually happening in our World with respect to all our freedoms. I was first and foremost dedicated to discussing solutions for the mounting and ever escalating insanity of corporate, banking, and militaristic actions that can only be described as crimes against humanity. When one understands that the United States government, all their regulatory bodies, and our courts have been incorporated, meaning they are private institutions serving masters and not the public interest, the fall down the rabbit hole becomes fast and furious. Of course the U.S. is not the only country to fall prey to this most insidious and despicable treason; but our government is certainly one of the most devious when it comes to double-speak, flagrant lies, manipulation, and extortion and harassment of those who oppose their immoral and reprehensible allegiances or seek to uphold the sanctity of life, all life, as well as our right to be self-determining, free, and healthy.
