2023 Annual Wrap Up: Building Wealth: Where to Stash Your Cash in 2024 with Ricardo Oskam and Carolyn Betts

A Short Preview:

“Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.”
~ Henry Ford

This week, we continue publication of our 2023 Annual Wrap Up. In Parts I and II, Dr. Joseph P. Farrell and I examined the top 20 news trends and stories of the year, unanswered questions, and “great takings.” In “Building Wealth: Where to Stash Your Cash in 2024,” Ricardo Oskam and Carolyn Betts join me to shift our focus from “takings” to the people’s Building Wealth Reset.

All signs point to 2024 being a critical year for staying focused and not letting yourself get distracted by fear or hope porn. Our goal is to provide you with practical suggestions for managing risks and allocating your time and resources in 2024. Guided by the six pillars of the Solari Report’s Building Wealth curriculum, we outline a variety of possible actions:

  1. Maintain a commitment to living a Free and Inspired Life by surrounding yourself with and supporting high-integrity people; in the context of my favorite Bible story, the story of Gideon, that means individuals who are both faithful and competent.
  2. Build Navigation Tools (for example, by creating a learning plan, acquiring hard-copy books, subscribing to new media); recognize that in wartime, strategically investing time and money in reliable intelligence is essential.
  3. Take Risk Management seriously, including in the areas of personal and family safety and health (for example, acquire self-defense skills or knowledge that allows you to “become your own doctor”). Also make sure all of your important documents are adequately archived.
  4. Building Living Equity includes ensuring that you have access to clean water and real food and that you continue to build capacity to protect against and detoxify from the Great Poisoning. Investing in the next generation—the children you love—should also be front and center, including fostering their critical reasoning skills as well as their appreciation for high culture.
  5. For Financial Equity, there has never been a better time to focus on a “family wealth” approach (I never tire of recommending James Hughes’ book on that topic) or to get educated about strategies like hedging and behavioral investing.
  6. And don’t forget to Turtle Forth. As we frequently remind subscribers, “turtling” is about “moving forward steadily, taking action, and never stopping.”

While listening, we recommend that subscribers scan the list of over 40 ideas and options in “Where to Stash Your Cash in 2022” as well as the list of 33 ideas covered by Catherine and Ricardo in “Where to Stash Your Cash in 2024.”

On January 30, the 2023 Annual Wrap Up will continue with my quarterly Equity Overview with Tim Caban, followed on February 6 by my interview with Future Science Series host Ulrike Granögger—the author for our “Water” theme—who will help us understand how water relates to building wealth.

Money & Markets:

This is the last week of the month, so there is no Money & Markets. The next Money & Markets will publish on February 1. Post questions at the Money & Markets commentary here.
