The Solari Report

2nd Quarter Wrap-up

“The world needs a wake up call, gentlemen. We’re gonna phone it in.”
~~ Gilbert, They Live

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Please join me for the July 4th fireworks on the Solari Report!

We will review the top 10 stories of the 2nd Quarter and connect the dots to the extraordinary swing of the financial pendulum back towards North America.

G-7 and the developed nations are calling capital homewards. The resulting squeeze in the emerging market and tax havens is rocking through the commodities and precious metals markets, while US equities move higher and pundits declare it is morning in America again. The Fed has cleaned the balance sheets of their member banks of questionable mortgage securities and returned bank stocks to pre-bailout levels.

One one hand, it is part of the ebb and flow of the long term re-balancing of the global economy. On the other hand, the force behind this move reminds us, “what Mr. Global gives, Mr. Global can take away.”

The NSA reminds us that one of the things that has been taken away is personal, financial and economic privacy. Our personal digital systems are feeding a insider trading apparatus.

We will be talking about what is next and what it means to you.

Our theme for 2013 is “Coming Clean.” Seeing things as they are is an essential part of the coming clean process. Please do let me know your questions and concerns – I want to make sure this Wrap Up leaves you with a strong sense of coherence – you see the deeper patterns in the flow of disparate events and your pathway forward.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the BBC series Wallander about Swedish detective Kurt Wallander, a deeply moral man struggling to maintain his balance in the face of the violence and perversion he experiences. In the process, he inspires us to feel the power of our intuition and humanity to make sure things come out right.

This week's report will be live and the mp3 will be available to subscribers in the blogpost and archive the following day. Please note that after this week we will be using our new format where the recorded interview will be available to subscribers Thursday mornings while Money & Markets and Ask Catherine will be live Thursday night.

Talk to you Thursday!

Solari Stories - The $400,000,000 Story pt. 2

Do you want to know what's really going on? Watch our weekly Solari Story:

"Let me fast forward and continue that story. Several months later – I think it was probably about 9 months later – we ended up shutting down the coinsurance program because the corruption was so bad. And at that point we had a $9 billion portfolio and because we had shut down the new originations it was a fait accompli that a lot of that, if not all of that portfolio, would default back in for servicing at HUD.

Just A Taste - The Empire Strikes Back

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

"Our Theme tonight is 'The Empire Draws the Capital Home." What we're seeing in the last year is as the money is poured into the BRIC nations, you see them flexing their political muscles. We've had currency wars, various countries both in the developed and emerging markets demanding the US ship their precious metals back which are stored in the New York Fed. The Empire has decided to exercise a little reminder of who's boss. Another way to say this is that 'Mr. Global giveth and Mr. Global taketh away.'"  Watch the video...
