Editorial Reviews


"Dense and disturbing...Weiner succeeds in making the case that something fundamental has changed in the world with the rise of Eastern and Middle Eastern economies, and that is worth paying attention to." -The New York Times Book Review

"Eric J. Weiner out-hustles the global influence peddlers."  -Vanity Fair

"Alarming...a bleak survey of how flush authoritarian governments deploy financial means to achieve geopolitical ends."  -Bloomberg BusinessWeek

"Unnerving...consistently engaging...a revealing - and troubling - overview of the uses of money and power at the international level."  -Kirkus Reviews

"Does a good job of captivating you."  -Crain's Chicago Business

"Informative, admirably lucid."  -Publishers Weekly

"Weiner explains how the U.S. is ceding dominance to countries with more cash and less debt. His book explains how to succeed as an investor in the world of the shadow market"-Worth

Format: Paperback
This book clearly explained so many world events that never rang true as reported in the usual sound bytes we've grown to expect from the media: why the Lockerby bomber was freed, why the Rio Tinto employees were arrested, why Iceland's economy tanked so suddenly. This was an easy reading story of how the various wealthy countries interact with each other, where the money comes from, the differences in how various countries manage their funds, and why our financial systems seem so out of control. It is always surprising how ingeneously manipulative the powerful are. Global economics will never again by as dull as it was before reading this book. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to understand how the world is evolving.
