Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World is out NOW!


A searing exposé of the collusion between central bankers as they control global markets and dictate economic policy. 

The financial crisis unleashed a chain reaction that turbo-boosted central bankers' influence and triggered a massive shift in the world order. Central banks and institutions like the IMF and the BIS are overstepping the boundaries of their mandates. They are directing the flow of money to catapult markets without any checks or balances. Meanwhile, the open door between private and central banking ensures endless manipulation upon a backdrop of government support. Packed with details about the interactions of power-players orchestrating international finance – from Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi to Ben Bernanke and Christine Lagarde – Collusion casts a jarring spotlight on the dark conspiracies and unsavory connections within the hidden realm of central banking that threaten us all. PRE-ORDER NOW AVAILABLE at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or IndieBound


From Publishers Weekly 

This unflinching, troubling exposé from Prins (All the Presidents’ Bankers), a journalist and former banker at Lehman Brothers, forecasts impending doom for the global economy—all at the hands of central bankers. ..The book’s most chilling section consists of Prins’s predictions of what awaits a world economy threatened by rising income inequality and an elite class bent on preserving its dominance: a bigger collapse than the 2008 crisis. This dense though lively treatise is not for the faint of heart, but it’s well worth a close read by anyone looking to understand the roots of the last crash and prepare for the next.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Wall Street executive Prins (All the Presidents' Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power, 2014, etc.) delivers a sharp-edged critique of the hegemony of central banks over the world's economies....The intervention of central banks in the marketplace, Prins adds, has mostly had the effect of distorting that marketplace by supporting a banking system that requires serious overhaul in the place of mere infusions of cheap money—and this money rarely finds its way into the hands of ordinary borrowers, and certainly not at the cheap rates the banks enjoy. ... "It only takes one domino to fall to wipe them all out," Prins warns in closing...A somber, important warning that's likely to cause readers to wonder about the safety of their assets, if not fear for the near-term future.

From Booklist:

Prins...zeros in on the 2008 financial crisis and its aftermath. ..Prins explains “conjured-money policy” and how central banks have created an artificial money bubble and flooded markets with cheap capital, which makes economies vulnerable to massive corporate defaults and job loss. .. To demonstrate perils on a global scale, she examines economic practices in Brazil, Mexico, China, and the European Union and discusses Brexit. These detailed analyses are backed by reliable news sources and reports. In the end, Prins offers practical and tactical solutions for preventing the downfall of the current over-inflated economy. This thoroughly researched, high-level view of central-bank operations would be interesting to those in the finance, banking, and economic fields.

All the Presidents' Bankers 

Based on original archival presidential correspondence, All the Presidents' Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power exposes a century of tight relationships and interdependence between America's past 19 presidents (from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama) and key bankers (from J.P. Morgan to Jamie Dimon.) It show how the same people, through blood, mentorship and other symbiotic collaborations drove American domestic and foreign policy and transformed America into a super-power. Spanning the creation of the Federal Reserve, two world wars, the Cold War, and international economic crises from the Panic of 1907 through today, APB divulges the historical alignment of the White House and Wall Street. A haunting examination of the geneology of power.  More information.  Watch the trailer.
