It’s time to begin our 2nd Quarter 2019 Wrap Up – my announcement of our theme, The State of Our Currencies, and overview is at Solari.com.
This week we publish the first in our two-part publication of the News Trends & Stories for the 2nd Quarter 2019 Wrap Up. Dr. Joseph P. Farrell joins me for our analysis of what is happening in 2019—and where the world is going.
In Part I, we look at the top stories in Economy & Financial Markets and Geopolitics. We also fill in the Trump Report Card for the 2nd Quarter.
I hope you take advantage of both Parts I and II—I know of no better round-up of the deeper news than these quarterly discussions. Our team invests significant time each quarter to convert months of headlines into actionable intelligence which gives our subscribers mastery of the economic, political and cultural flows in which we navigate.
Just when I feel I have achieved a synthesis, I sit down with Dr. Farrell and something remarkable happens. Joseph’s understanding of history, science, culture and ability to integrate across many sectors takes the conversation into a whole new mind. Our discussions this month were some of our most insightful and fun recording sessions yet.
Here are our choices for the top stories for Part I:
Economy & Financial Markets:
Story #1: Secret Books & FASAB 56: US Securities Markets Go Dark Story #2: U.S. Debt Spiral & Reserve Currency Pains Story #3: Slowbalization: Recession Looms, Equity Markets Correct; Interest Rates Fall Story #4: Technocracy, Farmageddon and the Reengineering of Land and Real Estate Story #5: Trade Wars: Superpowers Bare Their Teeth Over Sea Lanes, Borders, Back Doors & AI
