Description Gods of Money is a book about power and an extraordinarily wealthy elite that has wielded unprecedented power, not for the good, but rather for the enhancement of their own private position. Their agenda has included assassinations of two of America’s most popular presidents; involvement of the United States against the public will in two world wars; and detonation of the world’s most destructive weapon, the atomic bomb, on Japanese civilians.

Obama mnoey Bush with bailout of parasitic financial sector. Oligarchy and militarism, parallels with the fall of the Roman Empire. 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’.
miney 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’.
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 emgdahl 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’.
Engdahl draws on discourses of key insiders from the North Atlantic capitalist gids to reveal how they pursued a strategy in the early s to once again transform the world, in response to external crises that emerged in the late s and early s.
Gods of Money : F. William Engdahl :
According to Engdahl, the Washington-Wall Street-City of London plutocracy engineered the oil shocks of the s, and amid the resultant high inflation and economic sabotage, the Wall Street-owned Federal Reserve spiked up interest rates in in order to further weaken countries indebted to the international bankers.
The resulting world debt crisis strengthened Wall Street’s position to impose its policies around the globe. It is, therefore, truly ironic to consider that in today’s ‘free market’ era, the world’s most callous centralized planners hark not from communist or fascist regimes of the 20th Century, but rather from the capitalist plutocracies of Britain and America.
Indeed, the author convincingly traces the familial, fraternal and institutional linkages between the current Anglo-American plutocracy and their forebears, who planned two global wars among other horrors. Small wonder then, that it remains a vital propagandist project to key insiders that Wall Street’s secret history remains that way.
