1st Quarter 2011: Looking Back

by Catherine Austin Fitts

This Thursday night on The Solari Report is our 1st Quarter Wrap Up.

In our year-end wrap up, 2010: The Road Turns East, I said that in 2011 the economy would continue in a Slow Burn.

As currency debasement eats through household savings, however, the squeeze is more challenging. Many of us are shifting networks and careers, not to mention the way we see things. That is why our Solari Report theme for 2011, “Slow Burn on the Prairie” celebrates our strengths to manage the path we are traveling.

If you have had a chance to review our write up of the January year-end wrap up, it is excellent background for our discussion this week. Subscribers will find it at their control panel in the archives.

Among the topics I will be covering:

  • The Solari Report: 1st Qtr Highlights
  • The Slow Burn Heats Up
  • Collapse Comes to Fukushima
  • Tracking the Car Companies
  • The Oil Card: War Spreads in the Middle East & Northern Africa

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will be discussing the 1984 German epic fantasy film series – The NeverEnding Story and The NeverEnding Story Part II: The Next Chapter – about a world called Fantasia that is being threatened by a force called The Nothing.
