This Thursday on The Solari Report I will be speaking with the leading independent U.S. pollster, Scott Rasmussen, founder of Rasmussen Reports, about what Americans are thinking and feeling and what that means for the country and our political leadership over the year ahead. We will also speak about Scott’s excellent book, In Search of Self Governance, and the power of civic and grassroots action.

I will start with Money & Markets. This week’s Money & Market charts will be posted at the blog.

I will take questions that you post in your cart, or by e-mail or on line in Ask Catherine.

Finally, in Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Josh Fox’s documentary Gasland: Can You Light Your Water on Fire? about domestic gas drilling known as "fracing" and the impact on our water supply and health.

More at the blog.

Listen live on Thursday evening by phone, Skype, or online, or listen at your convenience by downloading the MP3 after it posted on Friday. If you would like to learn more about The Solari Report and subscribe, click here.

The Hu-Obama Summit

On January 19, Presidents Barack Obama and Hu Jintao will hold their eighth bilateral meeting, but only their second state visit (the others were all brief sessions on the margins of multilateral forums like APEC or the G-20). At the last full-fledged bilateral summit in Beijing in November 2009, President Obama hoped to open a more productive chapter in U.S.-China relations through a joint statement with President Hu noting areas of U.S.-China cooperation and highlighting each party’s "core interests."
