Summary
"New insights for investors and business people looking to create wealth in the turbulent post-crisis worldIn a no holds barred expose of the 2008 financial meltdown from the inside, Ziad Abelnour argues that the political and financial elites have done nothing to fix the structural problems and instead have worsened the situation. But by creating more market bubbles, they are actually waging a war on the most productive members of society. For investors, business people, and entrepreneurs that need to navigate the troubled geopolitical waters of the post-crisis world, Abelnour offers several solutions, including looking at the world anew and understanding that "capital is coward." It is energy and seeks the path of least resistance, tending to flow toward stable countries that promote innovation, competition, and freer markets. Written for investors that need to navigate the troubled geopolitical waters of the post-crisis world Offers investment advice based on the principle that capital tends flow to stable countries Describes political solutions that anyone can engage in to restore freedom The author is President and CEO of Blackhawk Partners, Inc., a private family office that has two major lines of business, private equity investments and advisory services, and physical commodities trading Compelling and persuasive, Economic Warfare reveals that wealth can be created in the new, post-crisis world, but investors need to understand that the rules of the game have changed"--
