MY COMMENTARY – What we are witnessing is
a financial coup d’etat -- a negative return on investment
“tapeworm economy” expanding in alarming proportions.
It is vitally important that we shift our own assets away from
the Tapeworm and into a truly diversified portfolio that is invested
in building real wealth through sustainable economies as opposed
to paper wealth through liquidation and destruction.
This is no longer a question of what investment has the best yield.
This starts with the question of whether or not your assets are
safely diversified and best serve you and those you love.
If we want to have fresh food, fresh water, lawful thriving communities,
and sustainable solutions, we have to finance them. The notion that
we can make money buying securities issued by large corporations
and governments that make money from war and environmental destruction,
and then use that money to buy preferred rights to diminishing fresh
water, fresh food and energy in safe neighborhoods, is no longer
Sustainable technologies means arranging the strategic resources
you and your family need to be sustained. Learning and repositioning
takes time, including more time for learning and networking, so

I: Is SRI Hazardous to our Wealth?
II: Solari Portfolio Strategy - The Power of Financial Intimacy
As I drive around the country, I find so many members of the Solari
Action Network who are doing courageous things with their time,
their investments and their activism. Your steps in a positive direction
are building real momentum for solutions because so many ways that
investors are making money today are dependent on the destruction
of real wealth. Turn that one behavior around, and the possibilities
that open up are countless because we start – systemwide –
creating real wealth instead of shrinking it.
We hope that our articles and audio seminars will continue to support
you in doing all that you are doing!
Blessings coming your way!
