Mapping the Real Deal: Real Deal Dim Sum

Mapping the Real Deal:

Real Deal Dim Sum -- Is the Popsicle Index Important?


By Catherine Austin Fitts - Solari

***********

The Popsicle Index is the % of people in a place who believe that a child can leave their home, go to the nearest place to buy a popsicle (ice cream) and come home alone safely. (See also... The Popsicle Index)

As a government official and private investor, I found that the Popsicle Index was essential to understanding return on investment in the management of the US financial system.

A deterioriating Popsicle Index globally has been a leading indicator of the slide in our physical and financial security and the centralization of wealth through predatory currency, lending and business practices managed by the central banking and G-8 governmental apparatus.(See also... The American Tapeworm)

Today, in an effort to explain relative values to a colleague, we decided to to see what the Internet might indicate about whether or not people care most about the basics -- a home of our own, a safe environment, free time, an education and a good job.

I checked Google to see how many hits numerous topics commanded in terms of internet attention. My colleague described them as "most interesting."

Google Hits for the following subjects -- in millions

While each one of us will interpret the meaning of this data differently some immediate opportunities are indicated. Imagine a world where angels at 12 and TV at 236 were reversed. Imagine a world where government workers were paid according to the actual performance of the Popsicle Index as voted on by the citizens. Imagine a stock market in which a rise in the Popsicle Index would trigger a rise in the Dow Jones Index and a fall in the Popsicle Index would trigger a fall in the Dow Jones Index and as a result we enjoyed a total expansion of total wealth.

Like Chinese dim sum -- it's something lite on which to chew.
