A masterpiece has been born: Crashmaker by Victor Sperandeo, known as"Trader Vic" and "the ultimate Wall Street pro" by Barron's. He has written about his highly successful trading strategies in Trader Vic Methods of a Wall Street Master (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1991) (with T. Sullivan Brown) and in Trader Vic II Principles of Professional Speculation (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1994) and,
Alvaro Almeida, which is the nom de plume of an attorney who has won several landmark cases in the Supreme Court of the United States. He has also written numerous monographs and journal articles. Fortunately for readers of CRA$HMAKER, his four degrees from Harvard did not disable him from delving into the depths of American constitutional law and history, and unearthing the truth about the Federal Reserve System.
Fortunately for all of us, you'll note that the credentials of Mr. Almeida exactly match those of the speaker in the attached speech you can read here. This speech was delivered on June 29, 2000 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC and will give you an insight into the author of Crashmaker.
I want to tell you that this two-volume set is the only book you need to read all year. It is the perfect gift to educate anyone on fractional banking, why the system will eventually fail, taxation and a whole host of other vital issues, told in such a way as to keep you enthralled so you just can't put it down!
I have literally hundreds and hundreds of books on these subjects, many of them very, very good. However, I wish I would have had Crashmaker a long time ago. This book differs from other excellent works such as Creature from Jekyll Island because it is truth woven into a fictional love story. The education one receives from this work cannot be obtained in any college in this country. Honestly, I can't say enough about Crashmaker except to get it, read it and encourage everyone else to do the same!
Between the two volumes, I must have 100 places earmarked, just so I can go back and re-read those specific passages. I think the promotional material for this book says it better than I can:
Why You Want to Read This Book:
CRA$HMAKER is more than an exciting story about an engineered crash of the Federal Reserve System and the markets that could actually happen. It also offers a stimulating education in the philosophy and practice of limited, constitutional government, and in the free-market economics of money and banking.
You may love what you read in CRA$HMAKER or hate it but when you are finished you will understand contemporary American government, and the forces behind it, as never before. And you will know why America is no longer "the land of the free", who is responsible, and what needs to be done before Americans forfeit forever the "Blessings of Liberty" that the Founding Fathers bequeathed to them in the Constitution of 1787.
Get Crashmaker today you won't be sorry!
