Going Up

“The European Union’s principles are democracy, solidarity, mutual respect…These principles were not based in blackmails and ultimatums, especially in these crucial times. No one has the right to put in danger these principles.”
~ Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras

Events in Greece underscore one of the challenges that the bond market faces – predatory lenders face a day of reckoning.  It’s a good time to talk about what the turn in the bond market means to equities.

This week on the Solari Report, I will examine how equity markets performed in the second quarter of this year.  This report will feature detailed performance charts and sector comparisons.

As equities markets build out globally, they are becoming more place-based and place-centric. With this in mind, I will also report on the Australian and New Zealand equities markets and what I learned on my recent visit “down under.”

In response to your questions, I will address a “key” topic for investors: portfolio risk management, including custodial risks that impact securities and precious metals.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will look at Red Dog, one of Australia’s most popular films. We’ve had a lot of bad news lately – time for some heart warming inspiration!

I hope you’ll join me on the Solari Report this week. If you’re not a subscriber yet, you can learn more about the benefits of becoming one here…

We Apologize

By Catherine Austin Fitts

We apologize!

You may have noticed that we have been managing repeated Denial of Service and hack attacks. They have been quite fierce this year – coming from many different places both in the United States and around the world.

I can only conclude that we are indeed bringing you “the truth and nothing but the truth.” The long-term solution is our new website which we intend to launch this summer. We believe it will be much harder to hack. The short-term solution is to continue to do the many things our systems team is doing to make the site as invulnerable as possible.

I would like to compliment our systems and operations team – they are doing a great job up against a syndicate which has clearly invested significant resources to defend their market share.

You deserve the very best service – we are working hard to make sure that your service is interrupted as little as possible.  We thank you for your understanding, your suggestions and your support!

Here is an idea if you would like to help:

We believe that the post which triggered the latest round of attacks was my comment on the Pope’s Encyclical. So, we would be delighted if you would click on the following link, copy the content and e-mail this article far and wide. Let’s make it difficult for resource-rich institutions to censor via cybercrimes.

Today, 1500 CEST Wednesday, 1 July 2015, WikiLeaks releases a modern journalistic holy grail: the secret Core Text for the largest ‘trade deal’ in history, the TiSA (Trade In Services Agreement), whose 52 nations together comprise two-thirds of global GDP. The negotiating parties are the United States, the 28 members of the European Union and 23 other countries, including Turkey, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Pakistan, Taiwan and Israel.

Today’s publication happens the week before the next TiSA negotiating round that begins on Monday, 6 July. WikiLeaks is also today publishing the full agenda for next week’s negotiations, which shows that discussions will focus on Financial Services, Telecommunications and the Movement of Natural Persons.

All this dithering over Greece is getting boring. European ministers flexing their muscles and posturing over whether they can help the Greek people of not. Why don’t we the people just sort it instead?

The European Union is home to 503 million people, if we all just chip in a few Euro then we can get Greece sorted and hopefully get them back on track soon. Easy.
