John Truman Wolfe gives an excellent analysis of what happened leading up to the crisis. As a banker with more than 20 years experience he provides detail in naming the characters involved. Anyone who just thinks "Blame Bush" should read this. There is much much more than what the public was told.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more, and also wants to know what we can do from here.

There a lot of books these days that talk about this financial mess. This one is different. Mr. Wolfe goes into detail on the individuals creating this mess and paints a picture that makes a lot of sense and also gives some good advice as to what to do in the coming months and years because of it.

When enough people finally wake up to the fact that this world is run by less than a dozen insane men, then we will be able to really do something about it. Alas, the hardest thing to face is evil, and people shirk it off or can't handle it and go into denial that any such a thing could ever exist and start labeling those people as "crazy conspiracy theorists". Well, truth is always stranger than fiction. This book points us to the individuals who are carrying out the plan of our enslavers-- The World Bank, IMF, Federal Reserve and Bank of International Settlements (Hitler's bank used to bank all the riches stolen from the Jews in World War II). If you care about your future as a human, then you need to read this book.

I found this book extremely helpful in understanding how this financial crisis happened. He talks in everyday language and explains what things are. I didn't know what a deriviative is. I didn't know what a credit default swap is. Now I know and now, I understand what's going on far better than before. I also understand how vulnerable we are to Big Money.

A Great Read!

I have over the past few years been reading many books dealing with economics, finance and the state we are in thereof. I have read books from Hayek to Kiyosaki and in between. I want to tell you about a book that I just finished reading that you must get and add to your repertoire.

I bought this book and was unable to put it down. It deals with the source of our current financial woes and it is not what you have been led to believe. It requires courage and a long view in order to accept. Our legislatures "who have the financial IQ of road kill" certainly are not the culprits. Neither is our first black president. These are mere puppets. You cannot beat a dead horse however you can vote for competence...that takes courage too! But this is not a political commentary.

The name of the book is Crisis by Design written by John Truman Wolfe, a pen name. Some of you know him as Bruce Wiseman. He used to be the Executive Director of the Citizens for Human Rights. I trust his writings. He has a lot of integrity. This book is interesting from cover to cover. This book will dissect the events of 2007 and 2008 and 2009 and show you how they relate to the events of 1907 and 1913. The author will tell you exactly what is going on and he will name names.

In the end the author shows you what you can do not with your life, job and business but your retirement plans and reserves. He'll show you how to do many things...invest in currencies, how to open an off shore account to name a couple of them (these have always intrigued me).

So, in case you haven't noticed things are getting pretty crazy. We do not have a lot of time to sit and dream that it all gets better. Get the book. At least you will know WHO to beat with the stick and wherein to place your reserves.

Format: Hardcover
John Truman Wolfe doesn't just connect the dots of Global Financial machinations, he colors in the emerging picture so vibrantly that the reader who may know "something is rotten in Denmark," but who has no background in finance or economics, will follow the timeline and data,and discover a very vital truth.

There's a French word "insouciance" which describes the playful and satirical style Wolfe uses to help you see and face something truly terrifying. This collection of articles does all of us a genuine favor--as it sheds a relentless light on a shadowy enemy.

No government on earth is senior to this enemy, and therefore no government is exempt from its influence. And we, as Americans, are going to have to do something about it. Without information and knowledge,however, one is powerless. After you read this book, you no longer are powerless. I highly recommend it.

This book is a must read but if you are one of those who hates to read then order the Money Masters DVD which will make your eyes pop out and make your jaw hit the pavement. If any of this surprises you then you are not alone and if it doesn't surprise you then you are not alone. This should be compulsory reading for all America.

Even though I've worked in the securities industry for a long time, I had not heard of the banking entities described in this book. I'm not much of a conspiracy person, but the reasons for the financial meltdown and continued volatility and disruptions in the financial markets are definitely plausible as described in this book. If what is written in this book is true, we need to resist the "merchants of chaos" and take back control of our financial system.
