Coming Clean: The Geopolitics of Water with Terje Tvedt

“In a world where more than half of the population – that is, more than 3 billion people – live along river courses shared by two states or more, and where many of the big world players – such as the USA, China, India, Germany, France, Brasil, Turkey and Canada – are either upstream or downstream states in large international rivers… water as a geopolitical factor can hardly be exaggerated.”
~~ Roar Hagen, Graham Chapman & Terje Tvedt

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on The Solari Report I will be speaking to Terje Tvedt. I could not be more delighted that Tvedt has agreed to join us.

The power and importance of water to the question of how we govern our resources – whether in a community or globally – and how we achieve cooperation and peace, as Tvedt says, “can hardly be exaggerated.” Tvedt should know – he has spent a lifetime studying the social and political dynamics of water.

Terje Tvedt is presently professor at the Department of Geography, University of Bergen, and Professor in Global History, University of Oslo, Norway, as well as a professor in political science and development studies. He is the author of a wide range of books about water and water bodies, has written/co-directed documentary films and been the leader of a number of national and international research networks and research projects on these topics. His newest book, A Journey in the Future of Water, is expected this year.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Even the Rain, a Spanish film directed by Icíar Bollaín about a director and producer who travel to Bolivia to make a film about Christopher Columbus and instead are swept away by the 2000 Cochabamba protests. The protests reversed the privatization of the local water company with foreign investors and produced the Cochabamba Declaration. The experience of Cochabamba is a counterpoint to privatization supporters who believe that optimizing water investment and allocation requires corporate ownership and management. These strategic issues are critical to the efforts to centralize seed and agriculture that we discuss on The Solari Report.

I will start with Money & Markets and Ask Catherine, including the extraordinary shifts we are experiencing in G-7 policies re-engineering capital flows. We will record our interview with Tvedt on Wednesday – so post your questions on the blog for the interview by the end of tonight.

Talk to you Thursday!

Save Europe: Split the Euro
On the eve of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln famously said that “a house divided cannot stand.” Today, the European Union — committed for decades to the quest for “ever closer union” — must confront an agonizing truth. Lincoln’s maxim must be inverted.


Introducing the Solari Coin

We have created our first Solari Coin - a one ounce silver round minted for us by the Northwest Territorial Mint.

The coin design features a solar armillary (the Solari logo) on one side, and the horsemen of the Knights Templar on the other side. The coin is representative of Solari's purpose: to align interests, protect, guide, and lead through troubled times.

We are currently offering a Solari coin to The Solari Report subscribers who sign up for a full year subscription.

"I said, 'We can so increase the learning metabolism within business networks and within a place that you can kick up that learning metabolism in a way that so increases economic productivity and value that you can make the pie that much bigger. There’s enough wealth for everybody.' And he looked at me, and it was funny, he started to cry. His eyes were tearing and he said to me, 'You don’t understand. It’s too late.' I said, 'What do you mean, it’s too late?' He said, 'It’s too late. They’ve given up on the country. They’re moving all the money out starting in the Fall.' Now, that fall was October 1998, the beginning of federal Fiscal 1999 when all the money started to disappear."  Watch the video...

Just A Taste - No Safe Haven

Get a "taste" of The Solari Report with this video excerpt from last week's report:

"This week was a reminder that when the powers that be want to round up trillions of dollars in capital and send it in one direction, they know how to do it and they know how to do it quickly. Several weeks ago we had a leak about 32 trillion dollars of capitol in off shore havens all designed to embarrass the institutions and people that have that capitol. Remember that it served the Financial Coup d'Etat well to have that money moved off shore but now it's being round up and is goingto head back in a variety of ways in the security markets of choice. It's also going to increase taxable income.."  Watch the video...
