I was hoping for international perspectives on economic warfare between nation states and non state actors. This book makes arguments for letting successful wealthy people in the USA operate without Govt interference. It provides some investigation of the USA financial ecosystem and emerging markets. However I found that it largely focused on themes of reducing Govt interfence in the market, call for shrinking USA Govt, the need for political change in the USA and many arguments against progressive and socialist thought. While clearly intelligent and a highly skilled investor I found his understanding of political history and social issues mediocre. I failed to be persuaded by evidence presented and would have welcomed a more detailed analysis and more supporting data. I think there are seeds of thought leadership in this book but more care needs to be taken with constructing a coherent arguments and avoiding emotive labels.

Excellent
