Coming Clean - Starting a Solari Circle

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Want to team up to learn how the economy works? Want to go past the headlines to see how the money really works? There is no better way than to join with friends and family to start to research and invest together.

There are numerous ways to start and operate a Solari Circle that focuses on investment. You can meet in person or by phone. You can organize your membership within a family or within a network of personal friends. You can combine your meetings with a pot luck dinner or meet at a restaurant. Think of this as a conspiracy designed to help you successfully manage your finances. We are more powerful together than alone.

In 2005, Paul Ferguson helped me start a Solari Circle with members from ten states who met by phone every Monday evening for the last seven years. Paul is a private investor and entrepreneur who has twice chaired one of the oldest, largest investment clubs in the country. This Thursday, Paul will join me to talk about what we learned creating and running a Solari Circle focused on liquid securities and other liquid investment.

I will post an updated version of the partnership documents developed for our Circle at the subscriber area of this blog post.

I will start with a discussion of events in Cyprus and what it means to the markets and you in Money and Markets and answer your questions in Ask Catherine. Please post your questions on the blog.

In Let's Go to the Movies, I will review Something Ventured, a documentary that tells the story of the venture capitalists who financed the creation and early years of Intel, Apple, Cisco, Atari, Genetech, PowerPoint and Tandem.

This will be an important Solari Report - I hope you will join us!

Talk to you Thursday!

1st Quarter Wrap Up

Cyprus' Savers Bear Brunt of Unprecedented Bailout
The euro zone agreed on Saturday to hand Cyprus a bailout worth 10 billion euros ($13 billion), but demanded depositors in its banks forfeit some money to stave off bankruptcy despite the risk of a wider run on savings.

US Wants to Centralize Mortgage Market Even More
[CAF Note: How has centralizing the mortgage market worked so far? Great, how about some more? Anyone considered free markets? Like the kind of markets where the borrowers don't like crime because without federal credit, it's bad for business. This will make things worse, not better]

The Complexity of Billionaires
In his introduction, "They succeed by meeting your needs," Steve Forbes writes: "The overwhelming majority of these people have moved ahead through meeting the needs and wants of other people, not through inheritances or crony capitalism. Their successes didn't come at the expense of everyone else. Free-market capitalism is not a zero-sum system." As someone who has studied the nuts and bolts of government policy engineering the centralization of wealth, I have to question Forbes' grasp of reality.

1 In 10 Doctor Practices Flee Medicare To Concierge Medicine
As Medicare whacks away at what doctors are paid and health insurers move away from paying fees for service to bundled payments, more physicians who own their own practices will start direct pay or concierge medicine in the next one to three years.
