Nov. 8, 2010 Future Salon Catherine Austin Fitts Solari.com

QUESTION: How much toilet paper should you keep in your house? Answer below.

On November 8, 2010 in Palo Alto at SAP, The Bay Area Future Salon hosted Catherine Austin Fitts from Solari.com‘s presentation “Our Financial System: Facing Hard Facts, Creating Positive Futures.” Austin Fitts has gone from Washington insider to community organizer at the local level. She was the Assistant Secretary of Housing – Federal Housing Commissioner during the savings and loan crisis of the first Bush Administration and went on to become an investment banker for the Wall Street firm of Dillon, Read & Co. Inc. She is now founder and managing member of Solari Investment Advisory Services, LLC.

Here is her abstract:

“The global financial system is being used to engineer a revolutionary centralization of governance on planet Earth. In the process, trillions of capital has been shifted out of Europe and North America, much of it by illegal means. Many of us do not share a vision of non-accountable, centralized currencies and debt systems. Let’s reject the financial coup d’etat underway by taking steps to protect our families, businesses and communities and do so in a way that shifts our assets to a more productive, transparent, decentralized vision supportive of free people and healthy ecology.”

My impression is that she advises rebuilding trust person by person. Act locally. It means investing in your community’s small banks and businesses to create an economy based on equity and not debt. She thinks it more important who your county sheriff is than president. Create an alternative economic model that people can choose over the current one.

ANSWER: According to Catherine Austin Fitts, two years worth. A safe investment in a commodity you will actually use. Watch the video. Okay the economy is bad, but look on the bright side. At least the planet hasn’t been destroyed by a galactic radiation storm..yet. As I said, watch the video.
