Editorial Reviews


Conservatives and liberals will each find much to agree and disagree with in Ziad's book. Economic Warfare is a timely addition to the debate and a good history lesson in advance of the next election of how our modern financial institutions came to be and how far from the founding fathers'intent many of them have strayed. 
Ziad argues forcefully that much of what we have come to accept as"progressive" ideas needs to be looked at through a different prism--a prism of economic liberty. Traditionally, we are taught to judge the success of a society by how it deals with the least able, most vulnerable     members of that society. 
Economic Warfare challenges us by asking whether it is not the reverse that should be true. Shouldn't we judge a society by how they treat the most successful? Do we vilify, tax, expropriate, and condemn those who have succeeded, or do we celebrate economic success as the engine that propels ou rsociety toward greater collective well-being? Economic Warfare's timing couldnot be better.
I have known Ziad for more than 25 years since our time together at theWharton School and as a coworker at Drexel Burnham Lambert in the mid-1980s. Itruly admire Ziad's passion as well as his ability to see events and trends forwhat they are. Ziad's outsider's perspective on what is great about the UnitedStates and what we are in danger of losing is timely and informative and animportant contribution to the debate going forward.

From the Author

I am into creating wealth, lobbying for just causes, and empowering the best and brightest to do more of the above over and over again. Because of that, I have been called Machiavellian. I consider it a compliment.
What I am sharing in this book is what I have learned on the way to succeeding in spite of the best efforts of the anticapitalist radicals who have temporarily seized control of our government. I have done it without compromising basic business principles like risk management and ethics. I believe I speak for many of my professional peers when I say that I am appalled that a very few have nearly destroyed our economy because of their greed and corruption.
I believe we are at a crossroads in this nation. More than 235 years ago, we declared ourselves independent from an economic system that chose winners and losers based on patronage and heredity. We fought to free ourselves from a market model where the government dictated how successful we could and would become. We chose instead to have a free-market system in which a man could become whatever he dreamed as long as he was honest, faithful, and provided value. from the beginning of this republic, we have been told that government had the power and the authority to achieving economic stability and assure our business success. for nearly 100 years, we have been assured, in election after election, that if we just give the government a little more power and a little more control, our economy will always be solid and our business climate will be vibrant.
As I look around today, I believe the time has come to pull back the curtain and reveal the fact that we have not only been robbed of our birthright, we have very nearly been sold into slavery by our government in order to support the lust for power. We are a nation that was built upon the rule of law, but we have allowed our leaders to become so compromised and corrupt that a small number of the financial and political community think they have actually become too important to be allowed to fail and too rich or too important to be held accountable for their hubris and incompetence. A nation that was once described as a city on the hill, shining the beacon of freedom and liberty to the rest of the world, has been reduced to a weak, indolent,broke shadow of her former self; the subject of scorn and derision around the world because of the corruption in our system.

It is time to sound the trumpet and arouse the citizens!
