Crisis by Design

Paperback – August 1st, 2012

[maxbutton id="1" text="Ebook | $5.99" url="/product/crisis-by-design-ebook/"] [maxbutton id="2" text="Paperback | $19.95" url="#"]

There’s been a coup d’état.

It was not a mob of AK-47 wielding militia overthrowing a dictator in a third-world country. This one was different. On April 2, 2009 at a meeting of the G-20 in London, the fiscal autonomy of the United States (and other nations) was quietly turned over to a little known bank with a troubling Nazi past. The story of this coup sounds like something out a Ludlum novel, but this is real and John Truman Wolfe has documented one of the most enormous power grabs in history, the establishment of what international bankers call a GMA, a Global Monetary Authority. How it was done, who did it, and why, is the subject of Crisis by Design, a no-holds-barred expose of a takeover of the planet’s central banks.

Wolfe not only exposes the dark side of this operation, he tells you how you can protect yourself as well as what public policy actions need to occur to take back control of our national economic life. Wolfe does not spew economic psychobabble. Instead, he writes in a smooth and easy-to-understand style. And the message in clear-an international financial coup has occurred. We must protect ourselves as well as our national sovereignty.

Datapoint

Forget Apple and IBM. For that matter forget Silicon Valley. The first personal computer, a self-contained unit with its own programmable processor, display, keyboard, internal memory, telephone interface, and mass storage of data was born in San Antonio TX. US Patent number 224,415 was filed November 27, 1970 for a machine that is the direct lineal ancestor to the PC as we know it today. The story begins in 1968, when two Texans, Phil Ray and Gus Roche, founded a firm called Computer Terminal Corporation. As the name implies their first product was a Datapoint 3300 computer terminal replacement for a mechanical Teletype. However, they knew all the while that the 3300 was only a way to get started, and it was cover for what their real intentions were – to create a programmable mass-produced desktop computer. They brought in Jack Frassanito, Vic Poor, Jonathan Schmidt, Harry Pyle and a team of designers, engineers and programmers to create the Datapoint 2200. In an attempt to reduce the size and power requirement of the computer it became apparent that the 2200 processor could be printed on a silicon chip. Datapoint approached Intel who rejected the concept as a “dumb idea” but were willing to try for a development contract. Intel belatedly came back with their chip but by then the Datapoint 2200 was already in production. Intel added the chip to its catalog designating it the 8008. A later upgrade, the 8080 formed the heart of the Altair and IMSI in the mid-seventies. With further development it was used in the first IBM PC-the PC revolution’s chip dynasty. If you’re using a PC, you’re using a modernized Datapoint 2000.

Cash flow is your largest asset. Are you just letting it waste away?

We have our homes, our savings, and our retirement accounts. But our cash flow over the course of a working life can equate to millions—even if we think we don’t earn much per year.

Too much of our cash flow goes towards paying debt or is wasted on splurge spending that doesn’t give us any long-term financial stability.

Mission ONE Million is all about getting American families back in control of their cash flow.

It’s using twenty-first century strategies to get out of debt and build wealth.

The Absurdity of Compromise

Paperback – January 2, 2019

[maxbutton id="1" text="Ebook | $9.95" url="/product/absurdity-compromise-ebook/"] [maxbutton id="2" text="Paperback | $19.95" url="#"]

People think compromise is a good thing.

Can anything be “good” that pushes everyone involved to sacrifice something they value?

Compromise has long been accepted as the preferred way to resolve our differences. We do it at work, as entrepreneurs, to settle squabbles between spouses, or when a mother battles a teen. No matter the problem, we go for the compromise. You ever wonder why?

In The Absurdity of Compromise, Donald Grady examines the drawbacks and challenges of conflict and explodes the myth that compromise is the win/win it’s proclaimed to be.

  • Avoid the pitfalls of talking past other people
  • Learn to listen intelligently and empathetically understand the perspective of others.
  • Stop fighting and compromising to everyone’s mutual dissatisfaction.

Want better results but haven’t quite figured out how to get there? This is the book for you.

“Today’s practices often present antagonists with one-sided solutions, leaving each feeling like losers. In Don Grady’s peace-building schemata, everyone comes away a winner. I recommend this lively book to anyone enmeshed in the field of conflict resolution, foreign or domestic.”

Robert W. Farrand
U.S. Ambassador and Deputy High Representative,
Bosnia-Heregovina, 1997-2000

Finally!  A book for the corporate newbie that sheds light on the strange and mysterious world of Corporate America…

Often the difference between the hot-shot “brand builders” who rise to corporate success and the “brand burners” who crash and burn early in their careers is seldom about intelligence or even hard work.  That would be too straightforward.

Corporate survival and ultimate success are more often about who understands the Unwritten Rules of Corporate America.  Who knows—

  • How to play the game properly?
  • What stupid mistakes to avoid?
  • When to raise their hand at the right time and in the right way to claim that shining, brand-building opportunity?

With 70+ years of combined corporate experience, Harrison and Heart share their stories of success and failure in order for the rest of us—corporate newbies and anyone who could use a primer on corporate culture—to best navigate around the common pitfalls and stumbling blocks of the early corporate years.

Alternative energy is the current favorite buzzword among politicians and others, but we don’t have a supportable and sustainable infrastructure to support it. Our political and economic systems are also too much in turmoil to be able to handle the changes needed. Yes, we need to wean ourselves off of our dependency on oil, but it will take time. We need a viable interim solution, and that is what “Viable Energy Now: When Energy, Economics, and Politics Converge” is all about. It looks at the intersection of politics and economics as it pertains to energy. It offers that all important viable alternative-clean burning synthetic fuels made from coal. It helps us understand the political and economic changes needed to make this transition to alternative fuels possible. In short, Viable Energy Now offers a set of realistic policies for us to meet the energy challenge of today and in the future. Carefully written and impeccably argued, it may just renew your outlook on politics and our ability to do something about it!
