Solari Update: The Power of IT
"Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time."
-- Colossians 4:5
By Catherine Austin Fitts
Our economy is run by force. In essence, authority and enforcement come from the barrel of a gun. That force hides behind complex legal, technology and financial systems. However, ongoing bailouts and violence are inspiring a wider understanding of more secretive forms of governance that extend from the centralized bureaucracies into local communities.
Often I talk about our core problem - that we are governed by people who are invisible to us and have the ability to kill and operate outside the law with impunity. Indeed, we have multiple groups in that category who are competing with each other. They often solve their differences by agreeing to steal from those who don't command the necessary force to protect their interests.
As we gather to create a world in which order and authority come from within rather than from external force, what would that look like? How would it feel? To begin, we need power. Where does authentic power come from? What is the nature of human power - how do we create it, build it, manage it? If we are to take responsibility and find the power of our imagination individually and collectively, how would we do that?
In this special Solari Report, Jon Rappoport and I will share a free ranging conversation about the nature of authentic power. Our goal is for you to increase your personal power in a manner that will make a concrete difference for you in the coming months.
At the end of each Solari Report, I always say, "Don't worry if there is a conspiracy. If you are not in one, you need to start one." If you are going to start a conspiracy, just where does IT begin?
Join Jon and I this Thursday nite for an exploration at the heart of the matter.
We will talk for as long as it takes to cover the material - up to two hours. There will be no Money & Markets or Let's Go to the Movies this week. Post questions for Jon and Catherine in the live webinar software or here on the blog.

The Real Estate Deal That Could Change the
Future of Everything
Dan and Ben Miller began tugging two years ago at a simple question they believe is central to the failings of the American real estate industry.
Why I don't Invest in IPO's by Chuck
Benjamin Graham, the father of value investing and much of modern security analysis, recommended in his treatise The Intelligent Investor, investors steer clear of all initial public offerings. The reason? During an IPO, the previous owners are attempting to raise capital for expanding the business, cash out their interest for estate planning, or any other myriad of reasons that all result in one thing: a premium price that offers little chance for buying your stake at a discount. Often, he argued, some hiccup in the business will cause the stock price to collapse within a few years, giving the value minded investor an opportunity to load up on the company he or she admires. This often turns out to be case.
