Third Quarter Wrap-Up

"I am confident that my colleagues on the Federal Open Market Committee and I will maintain the focus on long-term price stability as monetary policy's greatest contribution to general economic prosperity and maximum employment."
-- Ben Bernanke

This Thursday is our third quarter wrap up. I am going to check in with the major trends (see our annual wrap up in January) and review how events and markets unfolded during the last three months.

I also want to look forward at the "fiscal cliff" and the central bank-Congressional one-two punch on household financials underway.

Finally, I will report on the Transformations & Renewals conference in Tennessee last weekend (yes, it was amazing!) and what I learned about opportunities to rebuild our local and regional economies.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Arbitrage, the story of a troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire.

From The Blog

Beige Book: Housing Market Turning Around
The U.S. housing market has shown “widespread improvement,” but economic activity has improved only modestly in recent months, according to the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book. The central bank releases its anecdotal findings on the state of the economy across the Fed’s 12 districts eight times a year.

Vote for the Dinner Party!
One of the more interesting things we will learn on Nov. 6 is whether or not there is a “food movement” in America worthy of the name — that is, an organized force in our politics capable of demanding change in the food system.

 
     

Food Safety

As the holiday season approaches, we continue to reflect on our many blessings, including your friendship and support. We also continue to reflect on safe food.

Last year, we made a single donation to Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, which protects the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce. Two years ago we made donations to local food banks and farmers markets in every state and country where we have subscribers: all 50 U.S. states and 23 countries.

This year, we've decided to make a donation to Jeffrey M. Smith’s organization, Institute for Responsible Technology responsibletechnology.org. You may remember that Jeffrey was on The Solari Report on September 20th and is the leading advocate of promoting healthier, non-GMO food options. We also would like to donate to three more causes, but we need your help. Healthy food is so important and we want to support those who are fighting to protect us from GMOs. Do you know authors, attorneys, scientists, artists, musicians, or activists who are making a positive impact on our world and protecting us from dangerous food? We want to know about them. Please send information about these incredible people and how we can support them to kristen@solari.com
