This week on the Solari Report, my discussion with Dr. Joseph P. Farrell continues with Part II of the most important News Trends & Stories of the 3rd Quarter Wrap Up.

In Part I, Joseph and I covered the accelerating economic, financial and geopolitical changes. We discussed his new book: Hess and the Penguins: the Holocaust, Antarctica and the Strange Case of Rudolf Hess.  We also touched on the Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Virtual Pipe Organ Crowdfund.

This week Joseph and I cover five areas: culture, science & technology, unanswered questions, go local, and inspiration. Joseph’s understanding of the importance of culture to accelerating change always inspires me.

Make sure to access the News Trends & Stories section of the 3rd Quarter Wrap Up web presentation, linked from your subscriber links. Our web presentation includes:

  • Control 101 – During the last week of the 3rd Quarter Wrap Up roll out, I will publish my overview of how the centralized control systems work. If you want to understand what is happening in the financial markets and geopolitics, you must understand how the people participating in the transactional ecosystems are controlled individually and collectively.
  • News Trends & Stories – Our News Trends & Stories editor Brad Eddins has done an outstanding job of presenting top trends, stories, and videos of the 3rd Quarter.
  • Financial Markets – a roundup of market and commodities charts from the 3nd Quarter.

 

In Money & Markets, I will discuss the latest financial and geopolitical news, including devastating fires in California, tax reform, and missing money.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the TV series Game of Thrones, which just finished its seventh season. The series explores the brutal nature of power politics and war. Control in our society has always been based on physical control. However, decades of peace managed with subtle financial and legal controls in the developed world have resulted in a modern western population that generally cannot understand violence entering its day-to-day life.  Game of Thrones shows us a myth to reminder us of (1) that implicit violence and of (2) how explicit violence plagues the dynasties that manage our day-to-day lives, from the economic and political summits of our world.

To learn more about the investment implications of cryptocurrencies, you can refer to Bitcoin: The Op, a Solari Report with Harry Blazer.

1. Introduction

The only certainties in life are death and taxes, and while you can’t take your bitcoin to your grave, the taxman certainly wants to take a cut every year before that. Cryptocurrency is a new enough concept that much of the tax treatment is either not fully formed or not widely understood. Over the course of this article, we hope to cover some general rules and trends regarding the United States’ federal tax treatment of cryptocurrencies. This article will give you step by step guidelines for how to handle the taxation of your, or your clients’, cryptocurrency.
