In recent years there have been methods developed to decentralize investing. We take a close look at crowdfunding, the legal issues and dangers involved, and how to approach it as an entrepreneur. Crowdfunding is an important step forward in supporting both small and large efforts for the individual and groups alike.
This Solari Special Report includes legal pathways to help navigate these new developments.
As we look over the fiscal cliff into our financial abyss, now is a good time to “Come Clean” about the real state of our lives, our communities, and our economy, starting with the U.S. federal finances that flow deeply and intimately throughout every aspect of our lives.
This Solari Special Report includes (22) challenges we must address to put our federal fiscal house in order.

“Success doesn’t necessarily come from breakthrough innovation but from flawless execution. A great strategy alone won’t win a game or a battle; the win comes from basic blocking and tackling.” ~ Naveen Jain

Australian entrepreneur Mark Dansie travels the world evaluating new technology claims, implementing the chosen few and reporting on his website Revolution Green. He specializes in magnetic motor and HHO gas evaluations, but also reviews a wide range of energy and related technologies. I met Mark at the Global BEM conference and was impressed at his command of the practical issues involved in bringing a new technology to market.
Mark’s catch phrase is “show me the data.” Previously, Mark studied Industrial Design at the Adelaide School of Arts, managed several commercial businesses at an Australian University including the Press, Communications and Internet company and served as CEO of a regional public housing company in Australia.
Key points to consider from our discussion:
I asked Mark to join me on the Solari Report after getting a number of requests on how to handle the practical challenges of launching breakthrough technology projects. He was in the Philippines when we spoke and our call reception was less than ideal. We will get a printed transcript up for this report as soon as possible in the hopes that reading is easier.
This is the last week of the month so we will not have a Money & Markets segment. I will be back next week, reporting from Sydney, Australia where I will be speaking on the subject of Planet Debt.
Please join me on the Solari Report this week! You can learn more about becoming a subscriber here…

I arrived in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, on Monday. Kiwi’s – as New Zealander’s call themselves – are one of the most literate populations in the world. With four million people on a series of large and small beautiful islands, Kiwi’s are hard-working and intensely interested in their political, economic and cultural life.
I came to Wellington to see Alastair Thompson. For sixteen-years, Alastair has led the remarkable independent news media site Scoop Media and its global networks of independent writers, researchers and journalists.
Scoop Media covers the news – all the news – in New Zealand. Scoop’s day-to-day flow grew out of its coverage of the New Zealand legislature along with the national government and central bank.

A wonderful audience turned out yesterday to support the Ficino Educational Trust lecture series at the University of Auckland Business School. I gave a presentation on the re-balancing of the global economy. A fascinating Q&A period followed. The conversation continued with a smaller group over dinner.
I promised to post the slides as well as the audio of the lecture/Q&A as soon at it is ready and related links that came up in the Q&A and dinner discussion.
