3rd Quarter Wrap-up - Oct. 3

"There’s a plan in everything, kid, and I love it when a plan comes together." ~ Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith

By Catherine Austin Fitts

The world I refer to as the “legacy systems” is fading and a new world is being born.

But, what’s driving economic growth? How are events behind the scenes impacting economic growth? What does this mean to financial markets? Finally, what does this mean to you?

Let’s look back over the 3rd quarter of 2013…

The Legacy Systems “Downshift” Now that the financial coup d’etat has moved trillions out of government funds and retirement systems throughout the developed world, an effort to reduce expectations is underway. The result is becoming very unpleasant for everyone.

Control is Backfiring From engineering consent for a war in Syria, to eavesdropping on the G-20 leaders, to Putin playing the GMO-card, to exploding smart meters on homes, plans for “friendly fascism” are stalling and sputtering.

The Digital Heartland Revs Up The financial coup has shifted capital into mechanisms which are reinvesting in technology and innovation at breakneck speed. But, this time it’s not just happening in Silicon Valley – new technologies are popping up in the U.S. heartland, whether it’s factories, farms or infrastructure.

Space Beckons From Popular Science to the MIT Technology Review, talk of outer-space seems to be everywhere these days. NASA is moving forward in a privatized model at the same time that “coup capital” appears ready to make big bets on off-planet resources.

Join me on The Solari Report this week for a look at how these changes are unfolding. Solari Report Wrap-Ups are times when I step back to examine the deeper trends at work in our world. I’ll be sharing “wildcard” scenarios I keep on my risk-management list. I’ll also discuss my outlook for the fourth quarter and for financial market performance.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, we’ll look at the latest re-make of The A-Team. I love action movies and this one has the ideal “moral of the story” to help you stay amused in the 4th quarter.

Talk to you Thursday!

Lavabit's Ladar Levison: 'If You Knew What I Know About Email, You Might Not Use It'
Ladar Levison, 32, has spent ten years building encrypted email service Lavabit, attracting over 410,000 users. When NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was revealed to be one of those users in July, Dallas-based Lavabit got a surge of new customers: $12,000 worth of paid subscribers, triple his usual monthly sign-up.

Matt Taibbi Really Gets to the Depth of the Money Grab Issue for Government Pensions

Pay attention to the explosion of on-line education. There is a lot of excellent curriculum and teaching that is becoming available.

JP Morgan & the Sheriff of Nottingham

Just A Taste - Journey to the Center of the Mind

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

"This is Jon Rappoport for The Solari Report. The name of this is 'Century of the Brain.' I'm going to say 1996, somewhere around there, and I was giving a talk to people. I said to people, '21st century is going to be the century of the brain.' What I mean by that is that researchers are going to get tremendous amounts of funding, and they're going to leap in and do things to the brain. They're going to try to figure out how it works and replicated it with machines, computers, and so on. Also, they're going to try to alter the brain and make it 'better' so to speak."  Watch the video...
