9780470768143: Barbarians of Wealth: Protecting Yourself from Today's Financial Attilas

How the actions of a few in Europe destroyed the prosperity of the many (and how it's happening again now in America)

After the fall of the Roman Empire, vicious barbaric tribes including the Hunds lead by Atilla, the Mongols, Charlemagne and the Vikings invaded Europe, plundering property and destroying homes. But, they didn't just steal and destroy property in the villages; they also stole and destroyed any prosperity the villagers had previously enjoyed. What's worse is the barbarians of the Dark Ages did all of this not out of any deeply held religious or political belief, but, rather, for the oldest reason in the book – their own personal financial gain. Some things never change.

Barbarians of Wealth examines how the greedy, self-serving decisions of a select group of politicians and financial institutions negatively impacts the economy and, ultimately, destroys America's prosperity and the American way of life. Compelling and engaging, the book

  • Details how Goldman Sachs peddled mortgage backed securities up and down Wall Street while secretly betting against their demise
  • Discusses how Sanford Weill, founder of Citigroup spent $100 million lobbying for the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act that prevented the merger of commercial and investment banks and got his way.
  • Examines Christopher Dodd, head of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, has enriched himself while driving down the prosperity of his constituents
  • Offers up examples of other modern barbarians, including the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, Hank Paulson, and Timothy Geithner.
  • Highlights greed driven tactics of Wall Street corporations including JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch, and Salomon Brothers.

Barbarians of Wealth is a timely must read for hard-working Americans concerned with their prosperity, as well as for those fascinated with the inner workings of Washington and Wall Street.

From the Back Cover :

"Barbarians of Wealth is a breathtaking history of greed from Roman times to the present. Anyone interested in how welath is created and destroyed will find this book facscinating. It also provides practical solutions for profiting from the current barbarian scourge of Wall Street."
Michael Masterson, New York Times bestselling author of Automatic Wealth; Ready, Fire, Aim; and The Pledge

"We're being robbed of our hard-earned money! You know it, I know...but few of us have the ability to expose it in action. Except Sandy Franks. Her book, Barbarians of Wealth, exposes in detail how politicians and their Wall Street 'friends' stop short of nothing to grab our money and dash our hope. you'll see how every move you've heard about in the media has a calculated motive behind it. The best part? Frank's genius at showing us how to use these 'high crimes and misdemeanors' to actually make a fortune. Fascinating—and profitable. Read Barbarians of Wealth now...before it's too late."
Mike Ward, Publisher, Money Map Press

"Finally, a book that tells the real story of the barbaric actions by political and economic powerhouses and, in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner, reveals simple, yet powerful, real-world investment solutions that readers can implement to protect themselves. This is a must-read for any astute investor."
Erika Nolan, Publisher of The Sovereign Society; coauthor of The Insured Portfolio

"Barbarians of Wealth is by far one of the most interesting tell-all books that provides readers with an in-depth and honest look into the world of politics and Wall Street. Barbarians of Wealth compares the actions of the barbarians of the Dark Ages to what the authors call 'modern-day barbarians'—greedy, self-serving politicians and Wall Street fat cats who are willing to destroy the public's prosperity for their own personal gain. This book shows that the tactics used by modern-day financial barbarians are just as ruthless as that of their counterparts from Attila the Hun to the Mongols. This is an eye-opening book and must-read by every American citizen, rich or poor."
Bob Compton, CFO, Agora Publishing

From the Inside Flap :

Vicious barbaric tribes fill the dark places in our history. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the Huns (lead by Attila), the Vikings, and the Mongols invaded Europe, plundering churches and destroying homes. But, they didn’t just steal and destroy property; they also stripped innocent people of hope and prosperity. What’s worse, the barbarians of the Dark Ages forged their path of destruction not out of any deeply held religious or political belief, but, rather, fo rthe oldest reason in the book—their own personal financial gain. Unfortunatley, some things never change.

Barbarians of Wealth draws comparisons between the plundering barbarians fo the Dark Ages and modern-day financial barbarians—the major Wall Street institutions such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, CitiGroup, AIG, and a host of others, including credit rating agencies such as Moody’s Standard and Poor’s, and Fitch. With a keen historical perspective, the authors show how the reckess decisions of these firms along with individuals such as Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Chris Dodd, Tom Delay, and Jack Abramoff severely crippled the financial prosperity of the American public, and how, in many ways, their actions are no different than the uncivilized barbarians of the Dark Ages. Today’s barbarians of wealth are just as ruthless, and the stakes are just as high: the economic foundation of our society.

Understanding these barbarians—both from the Dark Ages and today’s barbarians of wealth—gets you one step closer to regaining your finanical freedom. Barbarians of Wealth provides you with specific strategies to protect your financial future and win back what has already been stolen from you. Learn these strategies and put them in place sooner rather than later!

Barbarians of Wealth is a timely must-read for hard-working American s who want to reclaim their prosperity, as well as for those facinated with the inner workings of Washington and Wall Street.
