Those who read Anthony Sutton's WALL AND THE BOLSHEVIK REVOLUTION should read THE BEST ENEMY MONEY CAN BUY in tandam. The latter book simply follows events during and especially after World War II and the Cold War. Sutton has amassed a collection of anecdotes and comments which, if so sad and deadly, would be funny.
Part of THE BEST ENEMY MONEY CAN BUY deals with government officials either defelcting or ending investigations of U.S. business executives who did business and made lucrative deals with "The Evil Empire." Many U.S. presidents preached about the purity of their anti-Communism while at the same time arranging for business leaders to make huge sums of money doing business with both the Soviets and Chinese Communists.
Some of the projects that U.S. and Western European businessmen included innocent sounding projects such as the Kharkov Tractor Factory which was built in 1932. This became a military production factory. Another example of U.S. government and business executives occured just before the Soviets Afghanistan in 1980. The Soviets purchased huge grain supplies knowing that window dressing would preclude further grain sales.
Sutton also cites the Kama Truck Factory which was computerized by Texas Instruments, powered by General Electric, and financed by U.S. bankers. All of this done via the U.S. taxpayers. One must raise the question of who pays for all of this.
For all of his tough talk about the wicked Communists, Pres. Reagan continued the late Pres. Nixon's policy of money and technology transfers to the Chinese Communists. One amusing aspect of the Cold War was the fact that U.S. authroities went after any and all dissenters who complained about the status-quo.Read more ›
"The Best Enemy Money Can Buy", authored by Antony C. Sutton is a fact-based work, published in 1986, but based on research undertaken by the same author in throughout his career, particularly in the late 60's and early 1970's.
Many an academic is pigeonholed in a specific area of expertise, in which they push the envelope further, in matters of investigation, research, theories, formulae, theses in a framework of university level graduate work (Master's, PhD's, professorship, etc.)
In the case of Sutton, the area was the Cold War between Russia and the USA mainly, or the Western Countries with NATO generally. Also, this work and worth as an investigator was measuring the performance of both world rival super-powers, in that Cold War competition, and analysing how well Russia was doing, and by which methods, focusing on technology in particular.
In this treatise, Sutton expounds over the above subject over more than 210 pages, using his advance language skills in reading German and Russian publications, and retaining the relevant military and industrial developments, achievements and facts contained therein, to explain them to readers, in a concise, legible, understandable manner.
Although at times over-simplified, Sutton exhaustively documents (going over every nook and cranny, at times) how the USA almost every single time, was ready, willing and more than able to create the best enemy that Russians could afford to become, monetarily.Read more ›
Sutton proves conclusively that the United States financed the economic and military development of the Soviet Union. Without this aid, financed by U.S. taxpayers, there would be no significant Soviet military threat, for there would be no Soviet economy to support the Soviet military machine, let alone sophisticated military equipment. The book reads almost like a legal brief from the prosecution.
This book is one of the most important about the subject of manipulation by a part of the ruling elite and its betrayal of the united state people and its constitution.Anthony Sutton is without doubt one of the best scholar on the subject as much as a courageous man.Nothing it says rings false and that s the terrible point that lead us to think that we truly live in a messed up world .,The crisis of cuba in 1968 would have never happened without these treator of the american ruling class.
i didn t rate it five star for obvious reason as the cover of the book is different from the one i got even though the book is a must read. to understand what is going on i this world
