The full name of the book is Secret Weapon: How Economic Terrorism Brought Down the U.S. Stock Market and Why It can Happen Again, but that’s quite a mouthful – so, we’ll just call it ‘Secret Weapon’.
Now, let’s start with the short version of this review, so here it is:
Buy this book. Read it the whole way through – all of it. Believe it.
For those of you who need more:
Some of you may not know that I spent some time in the financial services industry in the 90s. It was an eye-opening experience, one that I both enjoyed and loathed all at the same time.
Suffice it to say that finance is both fascinating and full of the some of the most despicable examples of humanity imaginable. Spend too much time in the investment industry, and you also will become fascinating and despicable.
I got out while I was still just fascinating.
After having spent a decade and a half writing about global security and foreign policy, I see that I have something of a chance to tread through some of my old stomping grounds in the financial services industry.
If anything, it’s even more appalling now than it was then. It is hard to believe that we’ve let this happen to us. But, believe it I must, because I suspect that Kevin Freeman barely scratches the surface of what is possible.
I pray that we never know just how dire our current situation is, but I’m afraid that my prayers aren’t going to be answered the way I’d like. We are in for a rough ride, and America has determined opposition that is prepared to do whatever it takes, with whatever it takes, to achieve their ends.
Yes, when you finish the book, you will probably have more questions than answers. That’s often what you get when you enter the realm of covert operations and covert finance. But, the questions this book does answer should motivate you to action.
Please do not hesitate to act. I doubt that there is much time left for dithering.
So, I whole-heartedly recommend this book. It is well worth the price of admission.
Make sure that you apply what you learn.
