Publisher's Summary

New insights for investors and business people looking to create wealth in the turbulent post-crisis world...

In a no holds barred expose of the 2008 financial meltdown from the inside, Ziad K. Abdelnour argues that the political and financial elites have done nothing to fix the structural problems and instead have worsened the situation. By creating more market bubbles, they are actually waging a war on the most productive members of society.

For investors, business people, and entrepreneurs that need to navigate the troubled geopolitical waters of the post-crisis world, Abdelnour offers several solutions, including looking at the world anew and understanding that the federal government's primary objective is to promote the creation of an environment conducive to the creation of wealth not job creation, not bailouts, not subsidies, not expansion of the federal bureaucracy, and not providing lifetime support to those who choose not to take advantage of the innumerable opportunities that exist in this nation for them to create a better, more productive life for themselves.

  • Written for investors that need to navigate the troubled geopolitical waters of the post-crisis world
  • Offers "out of the box" investment tactics and strategies to outsmart the system
  • Describes political and business solutions that anyone can engage in to restore freedom and prosperity

The author is President and CEO of Blackhawk Partners, Inc., a private family office that has two major lines of business, private equity investments and advisory services, and physical commodities trading Compelling and persuasive, Economic Warfare reveals that wealth can be created in the new, post-crisis world, but investors need to understand that the rules of the game have changed.

Reads like a Fox News opinion segment

For a book on such a serious topic with potential with a lot of substance, I was disappointed by how full of invective and ad hominem attacks this book contained. He has some good points throughout the book but his approach to arguing his points undermines the book and will turn off anyone not already convinced of his point of view.

  • Overall
    5 out of 5 stars

this should be mandatory reading in school today.

well narrated, educational and clearly written. I pray that the next generation of leaders in this country learn the lessons of this book.

Not Military focused, rather politics of wealth

I was hoping for international perspectives on economic warfare between nation states and non state actors. This book makes arguments for letting successful wealthy people in the USA operate without Govt interference. It provides some investigation of the USA financial ecosystem and emerging markets. However I found that it largely focused on themes of reducing Govt interfence in the market, call for shrinking USA Govt, the need for political change in the USA and many arguments against progressive and socialist thought. While clearly intelligent and a highly skilled investor I found his understanding of political history and social issues mediocre. I failed to be persuaded by evidence presented and would have welcomed a more detailed analysis and more supporting data. I think there are seeds of thought leadership in this book but more care needs to be taken with constructing a coherent arguments and avoiding emotive labels.
