2012 Annual Wrap Up – January 3

Happy New Year!

It’s that time of year to assess – what happened in 2012? And what are the major trends for 2013?

Our poster for 2013 celebrates our theme for this new year – Coming Clean.

Throughout the developed world, extraordinary increases in the money supply, fiscal stimulus and falling interest rates have failed to engineer economic recovery.  Rather than digging out, governments and central banks have dug themselves in deeper. Their insistence on more controls and inability to break through to real solutions mean we need to craft solutions for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

Solari Report subscribers have been doing this for years. However, the number of people interested in “coming clean” will increase, perhaps dramatically in 2013.  Let’s welcome them.

This Thursday night on the Solari Report (6pm PT/9pm ET) is my annual wrap up. I will cover the key events of 2012 and important trends going forward into 2013. Topics include:

  • Top Stories of 2012
  • Solari Report Highlights
  • Unanswered Questions of 2012
  • Hero of the Year
  • Movie of the Year
  • New Year Resolutions
  • Market Round Up – Predictions for 2013
  • Opportunities for Coming Clean in 2013


In Let’s Go to the Movies, two reviews. First, a review of  the most talked about movie of 2012, the third movie in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the Dark Knight Rises, as part of our discussion regarding the push for gun control in 2013, its relationship to the fiscal cliff, and the importance of coming clean about the federal finances and who and what is really behind mass shootings.

Second, the essential lesson that the Masterpiece Theatre series Downton Abbey can teach us about Coming Clean.


This will be an hour and a half special with a transcript including special graphics available later this month.
