Wall Street and The Rise of Hitler

Wall Street and The Rise of Hitler  By Antony c. Sutton

Wall Street and The Rise of Hitler 
Antony c. Sutton

This is the third and final volume of a trilogy describing the role of the American corporate
socialists, otherwise known as the Wall Street financial elite or the Eastern Liberal Establishment, in three significant twentieth-century historical events: the 1917 Lenin-
Trotsky Revolution in Russia, the 1933 election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the United
States, and the 1933 seizure of power by Adolf Hitler in Germany. Each of these events introduced some variant of socialism into a major country — i.e.,Bolshevik socialism in Russia, New Deal socialism in the United States, and National socialism in Germany.
Contemporary academic histories, with perhaps the sole exception of Carroll Quigley's
Tragedy And Hope, ignore this evidence. On the other hand, it is understandable that universities and research organizations, dependent on financial aid from foundations that are
controlled by this same New York financial elite, would hardly want to support and to publish research on these aspects of international politics. The bravest of trustees is unlikely
to bite the hand that feeds his organization.
It is also eminently clear from the evidence in this trilogy that "public-spirited businessmen"
do not journey to Washington as lobbyists and administrators in order to serve the United
States. They are in Washington to serve their own profit-maximizing interests. Their
purpose is not to further a competitive, free-market economy, but to manipulate a
politicized regime, call it what you will, to their own advantage.
It is business manipulation of Hitler's accession to power in March 1933 that is the topic of
Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler.


A Global Economy without a Global Government

A Global Economy without a Global Government
Hwa A. Lim

Three globalization factors are hastening in the globalization of trade. These factors are
1. Advances in computer and communications technology permit an increase flow of idea and
information across border,
2. The progressive reduction of barriers to investment and trade by most governments, and
3. The trend toward the unification and socialization of the global community because of
preferential trading arrangements.
The first factor leads to a reduction of geopolitical barriers. The second factor leads to mobility
of workforce among trading nations, and the third factor encourages transfer of technology. The
globalization of trade has led to a global economy. However, there is as yet not a global
government to manage the new global economy. Despite this, entrepreneurs can still benefit from breakthrough-, social-, and developmental-disequilibrium to make a fortune.


The World is Flat

The World is Flat – Thomas L Friedman

The World is Flat 
Thomas L Friedman

The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century is an international bestselling book by Thomas Friedman that analyzes globalization, primarily in the early 21st century. The title is a metaphor for viewing the world as a level playing field in terms of commerce, where all competitors have an equal opportunity. As the first edition cover illustration indicates, the title also alludes to the perceptual shift required for countries, companies and individuals to remain competitive in a global market where historical and geographical divisions are becoming increasingly irrelevant.
Friedman himself is a strong advocate of these changes, calling himself a "free-trader" and a "compassionate flatist," and he criticizes societies that resist these changes. He emphasizes the inevitability of a rapid pace of change and the extent to which emerging abilities of individuals and developing countries are creating many pressures on businesses and individuals in the United States; he has special advice for Americans and for the developing world (but says almost nothing about Europe). Friedman's is a popular work based on much personal research, travel, conversation, and reflection. In his characteristic style, he combines in The World Is Flat conceptual analysis accessible to a broad public with personal anecdotes and opinions. The book was first released in 2005, was later released as an "updated and expanded" edition in 2006, and yet again released with additional updates in 2007 as "further updated and expanded: Release 3.0." The title was derived from a statement by Nandan Nilekani, the former CEO of Infosys. The World is Flat won the inaugural Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award in 2005.
