Megatrends with Jim Puplava

“Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work – and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t” ~Lucille Ball

This week on The Solari Report, Jim Puplava, founder and host of the Financial Sense Newshour at Financial Sense,  joins me  for a discussion of “Seven Megatrends that Will Reshape the Next Decade” – a new overview by Jim and his team that echoes many of the themes you heard in our Annual Wrap Up.

Jim is an optimist about America’s future and always does a great job of documenting the case for optimism. As change accelerates, there is a lot of coverage of negatives. If you spend time on Jim’s website, you know that he has researched and given airtime to all of the obstacles and risks ahead. Which is to say, Jim is a realistic optimist who helps us step back, assess, and identify the areas and places which offer opportunity.

One of the megatrends that Jim mentions is the revolution in education. In Let’s Go to the Movies, I invite you to watch the single most popular TED speech ever given, Sir Ken Robinson on creativity and education. It is a delightful reminder of what is possible in a world where education helps people enjoy and develop their creativity.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in global politics and financial markets.

Talk to you Thursday!
