How Central Bankers Rigged the Worldav Nomi PrinsCentral banks and institutions like the IMF and the World Bank are overstepping the boundaries of their mandates by using the flow of money to control global markets and dictate economic policy both at the domestic and global level. These public institutions have become so dependent on funding from private banking and the revolving door between the two worlds is so smooth that public and private banks are effectively working toward the same goals. Packed with bold-faced names from the world of finance--from Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi, and Ben Bernanke to Christine Lagarde and Angela Merkel--Collusion sheds a bright light on the dark conspiracies and unsavory connections between what is ostensibly private and public banking and how it affects us.

"Captivating... an expos of the highest order - an all-inclusive and wide-ranging attempt to draw back the curtain and illuminate those who are truly pulling the strings controlling the progression of world events... Prins leaves virtually no stone unturned in this comprehensive and mesmerizing indictment... Prins is able to write with an authority virtually nonexistent - or certainly unrivaled - among her peers."--Bowling Green Daily News A somber, important warning that's likely to cause readers to wonder about the safety of their assets, if not fear for the near-term future.--Kirkus Reviews "Scarier than Stephen King horror fiction. Prins, a refugee from Goldman Sachs, tells the truth on her fellow banksters and their abuse of the scary uber-power they wield when they take control of money-printing machinery of the world's central banks. Astonishingly, she got deep inside these secretive power chambers-and came out alive with truly fascinating tales of the blood diamonds of global finance. I particularly enjoyed, if you can use that word, her exposure of the cruelty and cupidity of the banking potentates who suffocated Greece to please the gods of Markets and Mammon."--Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy "Central banks, led by the Federal Reserve, are the opioids for private banks addicted to being reckless with other people's money. Prins, drawing from her previous work in Wall Street firms and her present field research around the world, says, 'We are headed for another epic fall.' Taxpayers, workers and consumers who will suffer from another bailout, all better read this clear, concise, compelling book."--Ralph Nader "The US doesn't have a financial press. It has something better-Nomi Prins. Read this book to understand the central bank conspiracy against the world economy."--Paul Craig Roberts, former Wall Street Journal editor and assistant secretary of the US Treasury "Prins has emerged as one of the fiercest critics of crony capitalism and its sustained attacks against poor and working people. This is the book that the financial elites don't want you to read."--Jeremy Scahill, Academy Award-nominee, bestselling author of Blackwater, and cofounder of The Intercept "After the 2008 economic collapse, central banks created $21 trillion of money to stave off a global depression. But who got all that new money? And how was it used? The always insightful Nomi Prins, after traveling the globe for answers, reveals the shocking truth-and she does it in plain English so everyone can understand the awful facts."--David Cay Johnston, bestselling author of It's Even Worse Than You Think "[An] unflinching, troubling expos ... well worth a close read by anyone looking to understand the roots of the last crash and prepare for the next."--Publishers Weekly "Prins is that rare combination of real-world expertise, scholarly method, and a brilliant writing style. Collusion is urgent and timely. A must-read for savers, students, journalists, and public officials."--James Rickards, bestselling author of Currency Wars and The Death of Money "Meet the Lords of Finance of the twenty-first century. Prins' in-depth reporting explores how central bankers' political aspirations came to supersede their duties to safeguard their economies. With few options, central bankers will become more desperate with hopes that more collusion will save the day. Read this book to understand how very wrong they are and to fully grasp the danger that lies in wait."--Danielle DiMartino Booth, author of Fed Up and former Federal Reserve advisor
