Book Description

Game Plan is the first "how to" investment handbook of its type. It will explain the emerging risks and provide a complete game plan of response for investors at all levels. Freeman will explain that there is no "one size fits all" solution as events are happening quickly and the challenges can morph suddenly. Just as a football team must plan for a variety of offensive strategies and attacks, investors must be prepared to strategically adjust. This book provides the game plan to respond and succeed.

In Game Plan you'll learn…
  • The proper use of gold in your investment strategy
  • How stocks should be deployed in your investment portfolio
  • The smart way to diversify your portfolio
  • How to decrease your bond holding vulnerability
  • How to judge a guarantor in guaranteed investments
  • How to avoid falling into the marketing hype for Hedge Fund scams
  • How to find a properly trained investment advisor
  • How to advance wealth at the individual level
  • How to win the global economic war



Editorial Reviews

Review

“America’s political and military leaders may be ignoring our economy’s vulnerability to foreign attack, but our enemies aren’t. The information in Game Plan is essential for protecting your family from the devastation that economic warfare would bring. Being the messenger for this kind of warning may not be much fun, but I can’t think of anyone better than Kevin Freeman to ring the bell.”
—GLENN BECK, #1 bestselling author of MIRACLES AND MASSACRES

"As Kevin Freeman points out, America is facing a global economic war which has direct threats for your family, your job, and your life savings. Yet, despite his five-year effort to warn Washington, willful blindness appears to be at work, preventing our leadership from protecting you. Reading Game Plan will provide the hidden truth about the economic threats targeting you and provide you the actionable steps you should take to protect your family."
—LT. GEN. WILLIAM G. “JERRY” BOYKIN (U.S.A. RET.), former commander of Special Forces Command and the Green Berets and former deputy under secretary of defense for intelligence

“No one has done more to warn our government about the threat of financial terrorism than Kevin Freeman. His new book Game Plan provides a clear strategy for Americans to follow in order to protect themselves against an inevitable attack. If Washington continues its dysfunction, it will become even more essential for average citizens to know how to defend their finances.”
—CONGRESSMAN STEVE STOCKMAN (R-Tex.)

"Kevin Freeman understands the threat of financial terrorism as well as anyone. You'd have to be negligent to ignore his timely advice about protecting your family from the economic attacks that are clearly on the horizon."
—FRANK KEATING,President and CEO, American Bankers Association, former governor of Oklahoma

"Kevin Freeman is a national treasure. His ability to synthesize economic and national security is unsurpassed — and of incalculable importance in the conflict of our time: the War for the Free World."
—FRANK GAFFNEY, President and Founder, Center for Security Policy

“The threat of financial terrorism is very real, and nobody knows that threat more thoroughly than Kevin Freeman. In this book, he'll tell you how to deal with the possibility of financial collapse, and give you hope for the future, too.”
—BEN SHAPIRO, New York Times bestselling author of "Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America"

"Game Plan is an important look at one of the most significant threats to U.S. security: Cyber attacks and other efforts designed to cripple the economy. Must reading for those interested in protecting national security.”
—BILL GERTZ, senior editor of The Washington Free Beacon and national security columnist at The Washington Times

"This work is a new National Security Primer. If our elected leaders, national security, intelligence and military officials ignore his well-researched analysis, 9-11 could look like child's play. Moreover, our technology and industry leaders (those who by virtue of daily global challenges understand his remarkable vector) will hopefully start lively chatter in their communities about the nature of this potential immense and perhaps imminent calamity. Serious scholars will hopefully take the critical decision to ask "Why have we missed this series of interlocking threats?" Academia owes the nation a rigorous review of this work. It simply cannot be ignored. Markets matter. Our nation matters. This book matters.”
—HON. THOMAS W. O'CONNELL, Former Assistant Secretary of Defense, Special Operations 2003-7

5.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of financial book January 7, 2014
Format:Hardcover
I have read many finance books over the past 20 years and I strongly believe in the power of budgeting, compound interest, and living below my means. I have not yet found a financial book like Game Plan, however. Freeman paints a scary (but compelling) picture of the potential areas where the US economy is vulnerable to cyber attacks. His research is certainly eye opening. The focus of the book is not simply to scare the reader but rather to help them form a game plan (hence the name) on how to deal with the potential attacks.

The middle chapters of the book give a fairly common primer on different types of investments (gold, stocks, bonds, hedge funds, etc.) that are probably review for many readers of financial books. What I found helpful was that Freeman brought his expertise on financial terrorism to bear on these areas.

Where the book really shines is in the last three chapters. Chapters eleven, twelve, and the appendix are where the author really lays out a plan on how a regular person can go about preparing for a financial crisis such as he envisions from his research. These chapters are worth the price of admission and are bound to become a valued, and oft referred to, resource for anyone who wants to make sure they and their loved ones are ready in the (likely) event of financial crisis due to economic terrorism.

5.0 out of 5 stars What we've waited for. December 31, 2013
Format:Hardcover
What a detail-specific follow-up to 2012's "Secret Weapon" ( Secret Weapon Economic Terrorism Brought ). In this brand-new (2014) book, Kevin D. Freeman tells readers what they can do NOW to protect themselves and their finances from a cyber-economic attack. Don't think that's going to happen... You haven't been seeing the news. An attack can be anything from hacked credit card info (ask Target about that) to something on a much-larger scale. This book cover things we can do to be prepared... How to invest... what to stay away from... Things that are specific and action-oriented so we aren't caught unaware. It's not a matter of IF the next cyber attack will happen, it's a matter of WHEN. The adage of an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure certainly applies to the specific advice the author details in "Game Plan." The minimal investment in purchasing this book today could help prevent a family financial catastrophe later on. This is the follow-up to "Secret Weapon" we've waited for, and it couldn't have been released at a better time. This is the playbook to preserve, protect, and grow your finances. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Economic Sharks are Circling. January 7, 2014
Format:Hardcover
The US government's acknowledged debt is about $17 trillion. Analysts such as Boston University economics professor Laurence Kotlikiff place our government's true liabilities as closer to $211 trillion. A major transformation is coming and the sharks of the world are circling. We know this because hostile regimes and non-state actors have said so in their communications. The spirit of American independence and the protections of The US Constitution still hold the potential to provide a return to Capitalism and modern technology in the private sector makes greater liberty, private entrepreneurship and personal responsibility than the world has ever known possible. Read Game Plan and choose your destiny. Kevin Freeman may be the Western world's foremost authority willing to speak publicly about Economic Warfare.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't need a gun you need this book December 27, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read Kevin's first book Secret Weapon, where he made a very compelling case concerning those who want to take down our country with with economic attacks as happened in 2008. The next battlefield will not be filled with tanks and missiles, but with sophisticated economic weapons that are designed to destroy our economy. In Game Plan, Kevin Freeman provides an understandable "how to" guide for protecting our money and investments and ways that we can protect or economy from coming economic-cyber attacks.

If you are truly financially sophisticated (that is, you are a professional or have a business degree in finance), this book is not for you. However, if you are a regular person trying to get your mind around what is going on in the economy today and what you need to be considering as you plan your financial life, I can strongly recommend this book as one to read to get yourself STARTED on the right pattern of financial thinking as you get yourself into a better state and what to watch for.

Kevin Freeman is alerting us to the fact that we are in an economic war with Russia, China, Iran, and other countries that do not wish America well and cannot compete with us militarily. And as they attack our economy, your own financial well-being is at risk as surely as if they launched missiles at us. Just as the Cold War did damage to the combatants without ever dropping “The Big One” on anyone, this economic war is harming us (and you) in a similar way.

The first two chapters present the author’s case for the economic war facing America and wants you to see the risk you face because of it. He drives home what happens to you and yours if this war succeeds in chapters three and four. He spends chapters five through ten going through the case for putting your money in various assets and how they might behave under different scenarios. I think he does a good job in telling you not only what the benefits are to each, but the very real risks facing each of them. For example, precious metals, which he strongly supports as a part of your portfolio, run risks of being physically lost or stolen. And if you have physical possession of the metal, there are costs to storing it and protecting it.
