By Robert David STEELE Vivas HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on November 1, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book deserves a much more detailed review that illuminates the author's early connection of Wall Street fraud and Washington neo-conservative lust for looting the world....a bi-partisan (never mind the 63 parties that don't get to play, or the 43% of the US voters who are independent). Liar's Poker by Mark Lewis blew the cover of Wall Street's practice of "exploding the customer" and Griftopia: A Story of Bankers, Politicians, and the Most Audacious Power Grab in American History later followed on John Bogle's The Battle for the Soul of Capitalism and William Greider's The Soul of Capitalism: Opening Paths to a Moral Economy, but William Engdahl is the one who nailed down the Trilateral Commission and Wall Street cabal focus on looting the world way beyond what John Perkin's discusses in Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

Now the world is noticing.

"Gods of Money" traces the pernicious quest of international bankers to dominate the United States of America and, in turn, contextualizes how they came to exert so much control over countries the world-over in this era of `free markets'. Its author, F. William Engdahl, explores the power relations that have deepened between key insiders from Wall Street's banks, US industrial corporations and the United States government since the `American Civil War'. It is a history of an American oligarchy, its secret alliances, and the economic and military warfare, covert acts of terror and propaganda they have manufactured to augment their extreme wealth and outsized power. Through his well-weaved narrative, Engdahl shows how an imperial worldview binds the logic of the American plutocracy to their British counterparts, who play a subordinate role. He argues that the British plutocracy conspired to make war against Germany, in what became World War I, because Germany's industrial strength threatened the waning British Empire. Their American peers saw the opportunity for world domination by financing and supplying the `Allied Powers'. "Gods of Money" draws on excellent scholarly work to disclose that the Wall Street banking cartel also deliberately financed the Nazis. Furthermore, Engdahl argues that some of America's leading industrial corporations supplied the fascist regime with patents, technologies and materials in order to ultimately gain from the destruction of the Third Reich's war machine.

The book's subtitle, "Wall Street and the Death of the American Century", suggests that the oligarchs behind the name `Wall Street' have over-reached in their imperial quest to expand the American Empire's `free markets'.

Ever wonder why every generation: Must experience the horrors of war? Must live through the vicissitudes of economic booms and busts? Must now live paranoiacally with the specter of terrorism? Follow the money trail to the international banking cartel, the financial elite and their hustlers on Wall Street. They mandate government policy crafted to foist American hegemony and imperialism upon countries/regions targeted for plunder. F. William Engdahl is perhaps the most astute and scholarly geopolitical analyst authoring books with integrity today. Engdahl doesn't produce less than a 5-star work. How can I say this is a favorite?

Mr. Engdhal writes an entire paragraph of one sentence. I'm only a fair reader, so I have to concentrate on what I'm reading and sometimes have to re-read something. However, I think he's a brilliant man with important information for us. Haven't finished this yet, but I'm hanging in there !

I guess they weren't kidding when they found out about the 'Gilded Age': this book takes the subject to a whole new level nearly scorching the pot and providing a clear and detailed history of how the emergence of oligarchy in the wake of the Civil War produced an unexpected new cancerated form of the American Dream hiding the nightmare of the Rockerfellers/Canegies and their successors, the banks, trusts, and political connections that have consistently come in tandem with and to serve the 'birth of the imperial America'. The amount of detail is decisive in painting the portrait of the invariant power brokers of the American system. And it doesn't stop with the Gilded Age: continuing the saga through to the World Wars, and the onset of the Military Industrial Complex.
