Never let the fear of striking out get in your way”                             ~ Babe Ruth

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This Thursday, I talk to you from Tennessee. Franklin will join from the Eastern seaboard where he is enjoying a break from the responsibilities of being a farmer, a precious metals dealer, a pastor and the head of a very large family at Christmas.

On January 3rd, I did my 2012 Wrap Up. This Thursday, Franklin and I focus in on the precious metals market. What were the most important events in 2012? How did our predictions turn out? What did we get right? What did we get wrong? What do we see coming up for the gold and silver markets in 2013? And what does it mean to you?

We will discuss my new article publishing on January 8th, “Coming Clean Beyond the Fiscal Cliff” – a serious look at the issues behind reengineering the federal finances – and the impact on the general economy and households in 2013.

I will start with Money and Markets and Ask Catherine. Please post your questions on the blog.

In Let’s Go to the Movies:a review of Ken Burn’s remarkable 10 DVD series Baseball that tells our history through one of our favorite sports, celebrating America’s spirit and community. As we come clean about our corruption, let’s appreciate what is worth nurturing.

Talk to you Thursday!
