About the Author
A woman of the Left who garners praise from Noam Chomsky and Greg Palast at the same time as she is quoted respectfully in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal, LORETTA NAPOLEONI was born in 1955 in Rome. In the mid 1970s she became an active member of the feminist movement in Italy, and later studied as a Fulbright Scholar at Johns Hopkins University’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C. She began her career as an economist, and went on to work as London correspondent and columnist for La Stampa, La Repubblica and La Paîs. Napoleoni is the author of the international bestsellers Rogue Economics: Capitalism’s New Reality and Terror Incorporated: Tracing the Money Behind Global Terrorism. She has served as the Chairman of the countering terrorism financing group for the Club de Madrid, and lectures regularly around the world on economics, money laundering and terrorism. Napoleoni lives in London and Montana.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

WOW - private sector currencies developing on the net.
- Muslim Banking pushing for a return of their ancient Gold
My own obserbvations re the collapse of the USSR and the parallels today in the erroading public faith in our own system frighten me, and this well written and catching book is both fair and non-alarmist, but provides insite into major frightening trends that are shaping the new order.
BRAVO Loretta Napoleoni
In this global economy of today it is increasingly difficult for politics to regulate the market. In 50 years, less than a lifetime, the American dream has turned into an American nightmare where globalization has laid the groundwork for the socioeconomic decline of Middle-Class America, the backbone of the victorious U.S./ Corporations outsourced jobs and relocated production abroad. Dismantling of communism can be compared to the melting of the North Pole's ice cap: cheap labor flooded the market redesigning the economies of entire markets.
Global capitalism, driven by speculation & finance is robbing the middle class of its share of the productivity & new wealth. Aggressive and unethical groups of hedge funds are today among the most powerful of globaliization's outlaws. They are the bullies of finance, using the size of their portfolios to crush industry and circumvent legislation, because they are unregulated they elude national monetary & financial controls.
The author gives specifics in many areas of the "outlaw economy".Read more ›
