“Don’t let the same dog bite you twice” ~Chuck Berry

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.

“I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out.” ~Charles Dickens

This Thursday we continue our roll out of the 2016 Annual Wrap Up!

We began last week with Part I of our conversation with Dr. Joseph Farrell on News Trends & Stories, covering Economy & Financial Markets, Geopolitics, and Culture. This coming week, will be Part II covering Science & Technology, The Unanswered Questions of 2017, and Inspiration. You can follow along with the selection of stories linked on the 2016 Annual Wrap Up web presentation.

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 – not so for 2017.  So I encourage you to focus your attention on our discussion of News Trends & Stories, as well as our business and investment scenarios for 2017, when we cover them in our Equity Overview in the following week. Big change is underway – debt party’s over, get ready to rock and roll! I want you to think through what this means to you and yours and how to make sure you are in position to navigate successfully.

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 am happy to announce that Vaxxed has been chosen as Solari Report 2016 Documentary of the Year. Not only has the Vaxxed team created a life-changing documentary, but the team continues to travel, giving presentations and publishing critical interviews and case studies. If you have not seen Vaxxed or plugged into the network, you will most certainly want to in 2017!

Talk to you Thursday!

“No one warned us. No one said you are going to lose two engines at a lower altitude than any jet in history. This was dual engine loss at 2,800 feet followed by an immediate water landing with 155 souls on board. No one has ever trained for an incident like that.” ~Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This Thursday we begin our roll out of the 2016 Annual Wrap Up!

This year’s Wrap Up brings valuable perspective onto what happened in 2016, the changes underway now and events ahead.  Our theme this year is “The Global Harvest and What It Means to Investors” – because food is the heart of local and global economic and political success.

We will start this Thursday with my Introduction and Overview as well as the first part of our conversation with Dr. Joseph Farrell on News Trends & Stories. Dr. Farrell and I will be cover Economy & Financial Markets, Geopolitics and Culture.  The following week we will  cover Science & Technology, the Unanswered Questions of 2017 and Inspiration.  You can follow and link to the selection of stories on the 2016 Annual Wrap Up web presentation.

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. Not this year.

The heat is turned up and we are moving into a financial pressure cooker. With the financial coup accomplished and the debt growth model coming to an end, thousands of institutions will be forced into “controlled demolitions” – pension funds are cutting benefits, insurance companies are canceling policies, and companies will continue to layoff, move, close down or declare bankruptcy.

In the face of this wave of financial defaults, our opportunity is to reengineer government investment and expenditures from a negative to a positive return. Can we do it? If we don’t, we are headed into a long and difficult financial squeeze.  You will want to access our business and investment scenarios for 2017 when we cover them in our Equity Overview in the third week.

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 am happy to announce that Sully has been chosen as Solari Report Movie of the Year. Congratulations to Clint Eastwood and the cast for creating a marvelous movie about truly extraordinary leadership – Captain Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger III and the “Miracle on the Hudson.” Inspiring leadership in each and every person is exactly what we need when the unexpected is all around.  Leaders invent their futures – and that is exactly what we will do together in 2017.

Talk to you Thursday!

“The information that you share not only has changed my life but possibly even saved my life… Catherine, your site is so unique in that it not only informs us of the world as it is but helps to illuminate in how it could be. I’m writing to inform you of how the information discovered on Solari has changed my path going forward.” ~ A Solari Report Subscriber

By Catherine Austin Fitts

If there is one thing I know about Solari Report subscribers, it is that each of you is unique. That means when you focus on your new years resolutions for 2017, you will have a wide variety of interests.

To help inspire you, here are interviews with some real masters from our full Solari Report libraries with ideas to help you craft your new years resolutions:

COMING CLEAN

Coming Clean is the name we give for cleaning the corruption out of our lives – out of our minds and spirits, our bodies, our pocketbooks and our homes.

Article: Coming Clean*

Eunice Boston is the master of how to manage your home and work spaces in a manner that will enhance their beauty, and also help nourish your spiritual and personal well being. She never ceases to amaze and inspire me – not to mention, she saved my life! She tells the story here.

Coming Clean: Transforming Lives through the Power of Cleaning*

In Coming Clean: Detox Power, Dr. Laura Thompson walks you through critical techniques to help you detox from hard times and environmental pollution.

Coming Clean: Detox Power

The health care system can be a dangerous place to be unless we provide clear legal power, authorities and directions to those who support us. This is a topic we love to avoid, but doing so can save your life or the lives of those you love – both young and old. Attorney and author Jo Kline Cebuhar makes this an easy and understandable topic in two interviews:

Jo also did a great interview with me on death – a topic that is not popular in many Western cultures. That’s too bad, because sharing this passage with those we love can be a remarkable transformation for us all. As a culture, it would be wonderful if we could all come clean about our fear of death.

Managing End-of-Life

BUILDING FINANCIAL WEALTH

One of my favorite books on building wealth is Family Wealth – Keeping It in the Family: How Family Members and Their Advisers Preserve Human, Intellectual, and Financial Assets for Generations by attorney Jay Hughes. Hughes wrote it to help wealthy families stay wealthy. However, the same practices can help you become wealthy too. Jay joined us on the Solari Report to discuss what he has learned over a lifetime of helping families manage their wealth.

Family Wealth

Sometimes the best way to build wealth is not to lose what you have. Financial fraud is a serious problem in the developed world. One of the most pernicious is Identify Theft. Top author and journalist Bob Sullivan describes what you can do to protect yourself.

Identity Theft: Avoiding It If You Can, Surviving It When You Don’t

Every Solari Report subscriber has heard me say often how important it is that they learn about the techniques used to manipulate us with digital media and electronics. Adam Trombly’s discussion with me on entrainment technology is a must

Entrainment, Subliminal Programming and Financial Manipulation

This year we started to help our readers explore how these techniques are used to market a wide number of addictions, which lead to publishing several book reviews:

Then of course there is our great interview with Dr. Robert Lustig about Sugar Addiction.

Sugar Addiction: Getting It, Ending It

If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, which is compromising personal health and financial wealth, it may help you to understand the powerful technology that may be involved in covertly creating and maintaining your addiction.

DEEP SURVIVAL

We are in a period of change, learning to live with rising levels of uncertainty. It helps to get out of trying to predict the future and into to creating our future. This starts with being prepared to succeed in a variety of future scenarios.

One of my favorite books and Solari Report interviews is with Laurence Gonzales, author of Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why. Gonzales interviewed people who have survived extraordinary wilderness survival experiences. He distilled the survivor lessons down into “twelve rules of survival” that are essential skills for everyone to learn and apply.

Deep Survival with Laurence Gonzales

One of the tools that I use to great the future with confidence and for investment strategy is scenario thinking. You will find our annual scenarios in the Solari Report Annual Wrap Up. This year the best scenario thinker I know joined us on the Solari Report.

Scenario Thinking with Eric Best

Well, there is lots more in the Solari Report archives if you have digested all of these. So send your questions if you are looking for something else or want more.

On behalf of the Solari Team, my best wishes for a happy, healthy prosperous 2017 for you and yours.
