Overview

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.

Ziad's book is an outstanding, inspirational and life-changing read. If you read one book this year, let it be this one. This book will challenge your perceptions; it will shock you; it will entertain you; and it will slowly but systematically change your life. No matter who you are, what profession you have undertaken or what your interests may be, this book will resonate with you on an intrinsic, primal level. If you are a proponent of the free market system, you will thoroughly enjoy Ziad’s free market ideology. If you have any interest in the global economy, Ziad offers one of the best written explanations of the current state of the global economy, the banking industry and the global debt crisis that I have ever read. Ziad provides never-before-heard tips and invaluable insights into the world of wealth creation. You will no doubt thoroughly enjoy this book.

Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics (Hardcover) This book will move you to action, and will arm you with the history, information, and action plan you need to make a difference in an economic system—particularly a system based on capitalism. You cannot read Economic Warfare and not learn something new, not be challenged in your thinking, or not be inspired to act. This book belongs in every person’s literary collection, and ought to be read and reread. Writing with clarity, conviction and aplomb, Ziad Abdelnour provides a succinct and intelligent depiction of the evolution of the American economic system. He recommends specific structural and personnel changes to the U.S. government, as well as changes to legislation and regulations, in order to steer the U.S. back to what he believes should be its goal: the support and creation of entrepreneurial businesses, and the development of worldwide economic freedom. His willingness to be blunt, forceful, and fearless permits him to offer a new game plan for wealth creation, and to challenge conventional thinking. We would be wise to use this opportunity to learn from this brilliant maverick, and to set a course for wealth creation and economic change based upon his precepts.
