abstract
"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"--

A Look Inside
Excerpts
Flap Copy
America was created to be a land of opportunity, where the individual could take an idea, develop it, and create wealth in the process. Unfortunately, not everyone agrees with this notion. An enemy has arisen in our midst, one who has single-mindedly worked to subvert and even destroy this opportunity. Surprisingly, it is those we have elected and entrusted with managing our federal government and its burgeoningbureaucracies who are running the country into the ground. Operating under the arrogant delusion that theory is wiser than experience, they have given us an endless stream of programs. Instead of correcting our social ills, these programs have only exacerbated the problems and actually createdmore challenges due to the unintended consequences of incompetence, mismanagement, and corruption. Author Ziad Abdelnour, a financial veteran who's made acareer of empowering entrepreneurs and creating opportunities, has been on the front line of battle in this economic war-a war between those who create wealth and those who believe they have some sort of divine mandate to appropriate it. Now, in Economic Warfare, Abdelnour lays out a plan for restoring economic freedom in the United States and around the world. Along the way, he reveals the true nature of the enemy that threatens to destroy the free market capitalist system that has made this nation great. He also shows where the weakening of our system began, how it was accomplished, and by whom. But unlike many books out there, Economic Warfare actually provides some strong and serious solutions for overcoming the forces against wealth creation, and lays out a strategy fornot only surviving in today's turbulent financial environment,but regaining the economic freedom that has marked American exceptionalism. For nearly one hundred years, we have allowed our public servants to operate based upon the theory that bigger government is better government, no matter the cost. That theory has nearly destroyed us. Page by page, Economic Warfare Strips away the veneer to reveal the true agenda behind our expanding central government Describes the damage that has been inflicted upon the American economy in the last few years, making the case for the indisputable charge that we are involved inan economic war for survival Details Abdelnour's personal strategies and vehicles for wealth creation, and outlines tools that can be used on a global scale Gives a rundown of areas in which we, the people, can and must demand accountability and fundamental change from the next administration that moves intothe White House And much more Armed with the insights found here, you'll discoverwhy engaging in the wealth creation process, insteadof relying on big government and big business, is the best path to prosperity.

Summaries

Praise For Economic Warfare " Economic Warfare is a handy guide to global business practices. Just as politics is often war byanother name, global business is cut-throat competition by another name. This remarkable book offers insight, guidance, and a totally out-of-the-box way to think about international business competitiveness." - Herb London , President Emeritus, Hudson Institute "This is a must-read book. Ziad simply and clearly emphasizes the crucial free marketprinciples that must be adopted by the United States if we are to avoid the coming requiem. The reader receives an education second to none explaining what success andthe creation of wealth truly derive from. The result of this counsel is prosperity." - Victor Sperandeo (Trader Vic) , CEO and President, Alpha Financial Technologies, LLC "Ziad Abdelnour is an independent thinking libertarian who applies Milton Friedman-like concepts in this book to his daily life. The man embodies the American Spirit and in this masterpiece he explains very complex financial concepts in an easy-to-read and understandable language. As the founder of the worldwide CEO Clubs and author of twenty-six books . . .when I say 'read this book'-DO IT. It is impactful and a must-read." - Joe Mancuso , founder and President, CEO Clubs "The words that come to mind after reading this book are courage and truth. The question is, do you have the courage to hear the truth? Economic Warfare rips the lid off the story of the century-that our country has been embezzled and defrauded by a cabal of Ivy League gangsters, greedy bankers, financial terrorists, and vulture capitalists. They managed to turn Wall Street and the banking system into a combined craps game, shell game, and Ponzi scheme-all set up for the benefit of the few (bankers), to be subsidized by the many (taxpayers). Bernanke, Rubin, Paulson, Summers-all the star swindlers-are exposed in Economic Warfare. This is the book the bankers, hedge fund managers, and D.C. political insiders fear." - Wayne Allyn Root , CEO, entrepreneur, and bestselling author ofThe Conscience of a Libertarian, former vice presidential candidate andChairman of the Libertarian National Congressional Committee "Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics isthe new bible of how to make a ton of dough-even in these difficult times." - John LeBoutillier , former U.S. Congressman (R-NY) and author of Harvard Hates America "In his eye-opening book Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics , Ziad Abdelnour exposes the massive fraud being perpetrated on the American people by Wall Street insiders. And, as a libertarian and true believer in free markets, he offers solutions for both the United States and individual citizens when it comes to real wealth creation." - Robert Ringer , Publisher of A Voice of Sanity and author of Restoring the American Dream: The Defining Voice in the Movement for Liberty

Main Description
The abject failure of government policymakers leading up to and following the 2008 financial crisis has created a perilous environment for entrepreneurs and investors. Ziad Abelnour, a private equity specialist and noted investment analyst, argues that the political/financial elites have done nothing to fix the structural problems and instead have worsened the situation by creating more market bubbles and waging a war on the most productive members of society. For investors and business people, the world is now upside down. Government bonds have gone from low risk to high risk, while commodities have gone from high risk to low risk. Former communist countries, in many cases, offer better investment opportunities than nominally capitalist countries of the west. Pulling no punches, Abdelnour castigates the Federal Reserve and government officials for acting on behalf of a small segment of the financial community to the detriment of most everyone else. For investors that need to navigate the troubled geopolitical waters of the post-crisis world, Abelnour offers several solutions, including: looking at world anew and understanding that capital tends to flow to stable countries that promote innovation and competition. Specifically, he forecasts that commodities are in a long-term bull market and have emerged as the least risky asset in the post-crisis world. And with the world facing long-term shortages of energy and food, he advocates looking toward companies that provide energy, agricultural, and transportation innovations. Most importantly, he tells investors that risk must be prudently managed, particularly in areas where political ineptitude may cause rapid price shocks, such as currencies and bonds. Wealth can be created in the new, post-crisis world, but investors need to understand the rules of the game have changed.
