This Thursday we will continue our rollout of the 2016 Annual Wrap Up with my overview of financial markets over the last year combined with the first  2017 Blockbuster Chartology from Rambus.  We will discuss what happened in 2016 and what current charts and outstanding technical analysis from Rambus indicate about current markets for the US dollar, the euro, and global fixed income and equity, as well as for precious metals.

You can follow along with the 2016 charts in the “Financial Market Round Up”section linked on the 2016 Annual Wrap Up web presentation and the latest Blockbuster Chartology on its linked web presentation. You can link back to all of the Rambus quarterly reports over the last year.

In all of our Annual Wrap Ups to date, I have told you there is a good chance that the “slow burn “will continue through the next year – but not so for 2017.  We are entering the “pressure cooker.” So in combination with financial charts, I am also going to introduce our scenario thinking and four scenarios for 2017 published in the Annual Wrap Up web presentation in “Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready.” I will use these scenarios for business strategy as well as determining investment allocations.

In Money & Markets this week I will answer your questions in Ask Catherine. Make sure you e-mail or post your questions.

For Let’s Go to the Movies, I will comment on the TV series Designated Survivor and what it says about the governance tensions in Washington, DC between the President-elect and differing factions in his intelligence agencies.

“The American motion picture is the greatest unconscious carrier of propaganda in the world today. It is a great distributor for ideas and opinions.” ~Edward Bernays

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Solari Report subscribers are familiar with Jay Dyer, proprietar of Jay’s Analysis.  Jay joined me on the Solari Report last year for a very popular interview Unpacking What Movies Tell Us About Mind Contr0l.

Jay has published a significant new review of the relationship between Hollywood, geopolitics, the CIA and the covert world told through the prism of twenty movie reviews that take you deeper that most readers are used to going. All the big names are here, including Kubrick, Spielberg, Scott and Hitchcock.

Jay describes himself as a comedian and, indeed, he is very engaging and funny. However, I would describe him as also philosopher and historian who brings a serious passion for culture, symbolism and meaning to bear on understanding what the great films of our day are communicating and why.

If you are ready to dive into the deep end of what the “fake news network” has been up to in cinema, this book is for you. If the Pizzagate scandal blows in 2017, Jay Dyer will be prepared to give us chapter and verse on how Hollywood has been telling us what has been going on all along.

“Society is built on three legs: Economics, politics and religion. These three must be mutually compatible or the society will not last long, and the dust bin of history has plenty of examples of societies that failed when division set in.”  ~Patrick M. Wood

By Catherine Austin Fitts

We sit in the middle of an invisible war. Are we going to run society by rules and force or by laws and price?

Since WWII, the shadow government has used an Orwellian combination of invasive digital technology and covert operations and finance to build a new form of centralized governance to succeed where communism failed. Patrick Wood has documented this history in Technology Rising – the Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. He calls this new form of “command and control” governance  “technocracy.”

Documenting the emergence of a complex global rules based system is not easy to do. Wood has done us a remarkable service by attempting to integrate the various systems into a comprehensive overview.  For many years I have struggled to explain to financial professionals that the leadership does not want free markets – they want to communicate information through controlled networks rather than through prices. As long as the debt growth model could grow, an infinite amount of zero cost capital could paper over a society managed by command and control – albeit with highly sophisticated information systems, analytics and artificial intelligence.
