About the Author

Up until September 1994, Joan Veon was just a businesswoman. As a result of attending her first United Nations conference in Cairo, Egypt, she received her "wake-up call," as there was more going on at the global level than most Americans knew, understood, or were being told.

In her determination to understand the global level and what it really means for Americans, she has attended more than twenty-five U.N. and U.N.-related conferences since September 1994 on topics ranging from the social to the economic, the environment and reinventing the government. The level of conference has varied as well, from the U.N. mega-conferences in Cairo, Copenhagen, Istanbul, and Rome, to IMF/World Bank meetings, to Group of Seven/Group of Eight meetings, the International Organization for Security Commissions, the Rio plus Five in March 1997, the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and the fiftieth anniversary of NATO.

Joan has reported for USA Radio Network, the Michael Reagan Show, the Jane Chastain Show, and the Lou Epton Show, to name a few.

As an international journalist, Joan has asked questions of presidents, prime ministers, key United Nations/IMF/World Bank officials, Bank for International Settlements executives, high officials in the Clinton administration, multinational CEO, and others in order to understand the global agenda and how it relates to the local level.

In her capacity as a businesswoman for fifteen years, Joan writes a quarterly economic newsletter which has become more global in its reporting in an effort to identify and name key economic players. Her firm, Veon Financial Services, Inc., is a Registered Investment Advisor.

In order to help with the expenses of covering international conferences, Joan started the Women's International Media Group, Inc., which is a 501(c)(3) educational corporation. Those looking to help inform others are welcome to support this endeavor.

Lastly, Joan has authored a number of briefing books documenting her research. Her book "Prince Charles: The Sustainable Prince," which is in its third printing, discusses her view of world politics which states that when America signed the U.N. Charter we officially entered world government and reverted back to Britain. She documents the partnership between the Prince of Wales, the United Nations, and the World Bank. She shows the real Prince Charles as a very powerful man to watch!

Joan Veon was at first confused by the conflicting messages from the U.N. and its advocates. So she attended the Cairo Conference on over-population and began her education. Many conferences later, she has done her homework, gives professional quality analysis in a no-nonsense way, and exposes the United Nations for what it is -- a burgeoning One World Government. You can think yourself educated on this subject if you are not familiar with her work, but you are cheating yourself of hard-core information to not add it to your reading list.

Joan Veon has been studying the internal workings and the politics of the United Nations for a great portion of her life. If there is anyone in the world that can be considered an expert on the U.N. she is it! She attends every UN-connected meeting in the world and she reports in-depth on all of them. Through her research it has been discovered that the United Nations is not the "good guys." As a matter of fact, when one reads about the UN and finds out the truth it becomes downright frightening.
Now, if anyone reviews this book (and any other anti-UN book) and calls it a "right wing nutcase conspiracy junkie" book you will know which side they are on. And it won't be the good side.

Very comprehensive book with a lot of documentation. An excellent book to have in your library, as well as "The Unseen Hand" by A. Ralph Epperson.
