A Good Book That Gives Context To Recent Events

Yes, this definitely has to do with your trading, in more ways than one.

If the elections and all that has been going on in recent months has you a bit stressed, then you may find this book helpful.  I did.

A couple years ago, I was getting concerned over the general direction things were going, particularly with the malevolent forces in the world and as I learned more and more of what’s been going on behind the scenes for years.

One book in particular that was enlightening and same time a little disturbing when you think of its implications is “Confessions Of An Economic Hitman” by John Perkins (I read the 2005 version, but he just updated it this year).

In this book, he talks about his role in the process used by the “Corporatocracy” to get what they want from countries around the world, be it resources, influence or outright control.

The fact that it was all thrown back on the vague “Corporatocracy”, bothered me, as there are always PEOPLE making the decisions for things to happen.

Then I happened across this book

and found it quite settling, as it gave context to what was going on in general.

It let me know that what’s happening on the big scale right now has happened dozens of times throughout history, and that the world will continue on when this cycle completes.

It was very enlightening on several topics, and I learned a great deal of history that they just don’t teach in schools.

Both books are very good reads and I totally recommend them.

Enjoy!

P.S.  John Perkins published an update to his book this year,
