The Global Chessboard

On this week’s Solari Report, we will be talking about the economics and geopolitics of food and energy with F. William Engdahl from his office in Frankfurt, Germany.

Engdahl’s latest books, Seeds of Destruction and Full Spectrum Dominance, both quote George Keenan in 1948:

“We have about 50% of the world’s wealth but only 6.3% of its population…In this situation, we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity without positive detriment to our national security. To do so, we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming; and our attention will have to be concentrated everywhere on our immediate national objectives.”

Engdahl’s work is an extraordinary road map to help us understand American and European objectives in the 21st century and the real deal on the global chessboard.

Topics we will be covering include:
•    Food and GMOs
•    Energy
•    Nuclear primacy
•    Space technology
•    G-20 and the integration of IMF
•    Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan
•    Narcotics in Afghanistan and the Russian encirclement
•    The German election
•    Soft warfare and the role of NGO’s
•    Who is really in charge?
•    The New World Order – will it succeed?

This will be a great one for understanding the deeper trends driving a successful investment strategy for both family and business. Don’t miss it!
