What the author doesn't appear to grasp is that the four major players involved with the offshoring of jobs, technology and investment are: (1) Peter G. Peterson, representing the Rockefeller family, (2) Jack Welch, when he was CEO of GE, (3) Gupta when he was at McKinsey & Company, along with Diana Farrell at McKinsey Global, and (4) the European Rothschild family. These primary players moved on the globalization and privatization stages as well.

The problem with books like this, is that the premise from the outset is nonsensical or bizarre. The author is a good journalist, but doesn't fully understand the individuals, and their agendas, behind everything. He would be well advised to study the WTO's FInancial Services Agreement, and Ellen Brown's "Web of Debt" and view the movie, "The Usual Suspects" - - their plan marches forward.
