Авторы прослеживают механизмы скрытых монетарных интервенций на финансовых рынках, начиная с XVII в. и заканчивая валютными спекулятивными атаками XXI в., от практик эмиссии ценных бумаг и долговых расписок золотарями и ювелирами к созданию банковских картелей и централизованного эмиссионного центра под управлением Федеральной Резервной Системы США. В книге раскрываются механизмы создания и поддержания устойчивости крупнейших частных банков и финансовых корпораций США как «первичных дилеров» – каналов ввода эмитированной денежной массы в глобальную экономику В работе приводятся факты и аргументы, указывающие на направляемый и контролируемый характер острых финансовых кризисов как в Европе и США, так и на развивающихся рынках мира. Авторы указывают на то, что стратегической задачей спекулятивных атак на развивающиеся рынки в конце XX – начале XXI в., являлось и является расширение глобальных монетарных (эмиссионных) операций под контролем ФРС США и тесно связанных с ней крупнейших финансовых корпораций. В основе этих процессов – стратегическая задача удержания контроля над эмиссией глобальной валюты группой частных бенефициаров ФРС. В работе также дается глубокий анализ стратегии крупнейших инвестиционных фондов, включая Вэнгард Групп (Vanguard Group), на фондовых рынках мира, с целью их экстренной стабилизации в ходе разрушительного воздействия новых производных финансовых инструментов.
