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...

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."

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.
