Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to an exciting journey into a world of madness, lies, fraud and the most extreme destruction of capital man has ever seen. It’s happening right before our eyes – The Greatest Heist of All Time – and we are all its victims. The rich are getting richer, while everyone else is getting poorer.
The authors ask:
- How is money even created?
- Where do banks and states get their money anyway?
- Why is the global financial system unjust?
- Is it really just the banks that are responsible for the current plight or are policymakers to blame, too?
- Why is the world’s largest financial casino located in Germany and hardly anyone knows about it?
- Is the euro ultimately doomed to fail?
- Are life insurance and annuity policies, building loan contracts and government bonds still worthwhile investments?
- Do financial products serve the customer or the financial industry?
- What does it mean when a country goes bankrupt?
- Who really benefits from our country’s debt?
- Is infinite growth even possible?
This fascinating and earnest book provides answers that speak to more than just concerned investors. It explains which investments still make sense today, and which ones only the financial services industry benefits from. These next few months could be critical for the financial fate of countries and their citizens. This will also affect you. Failure to take the right actions now could leave you empty handed in the very near future.
Yet every crisis is also an opportunity. Make sure that you aren’t one of the losers!
