Napoleoni warns; since 9/11 that interdependence has, quote:
"[E]xtended the bounderies of a shadow world that threatens to replace
our own if we do not break away from the legacy of the war on terror."
Despite Wikileaks, most of us have little idea of how the world works. We go to our jobs and pay our bills, worry about our debts, and hope there will be enough left in the nation's coffers to take care of us when it comes time to retire. But we're not living in our grandfather's world; today the game has changed, and cruising along with the ebb and flow is not going to cut it, if we want to save what financial security remains.
Consider the words of Loretta Napoleoni, an expert on finance, best-selling author, and advisor to governments around the world. She says the nature of finance has radically changed over the last decade, seeing a growing interdependence between states, criminals, and terrorists that reaches to the very heart of the global economy.

Loretta Napoleoni, and following the money in The Global War on Terror in the first half.
And; can we save the economy without preserving our ecology? When it comes to political debate, the obvious connection between our financial and environmental well-being becomes mired, murky, and muddied by zero sum arguments that say we must sacrifice one for the other. This false narrative has proven enormously successful for corporate interests and their quislings in governments and organized labour, effectively playing natural allies against one another, while perpetuating the business as usual practices threatening both the natural world, and survival of humanity alike.
