Paul Craig Roberts, known as the Father of Reaganomics, was a former editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal and columnist for Business Week and the Scripps Howard News Service. He recently spoke out about an explosive new book, The Shell Game, written by best-selling author Steve Alten.
”I don’t think that Americans have any idea of the secret schemes serving undeclared agendas that are going to involve them in greater horrors than the current wars,” said Roberts in a recent review. “The Shell Game gives the unimaginative Americans reality in the form of a novel interwoven with real events and people. I recommend it to everyone, especially those who believe the 9/11 Commission Report.”
The Shell Game deals with the effects of Peak Oil and a catastrophic event that will catapult us into a war in Iran. According to a growing list of industry experts, world oil levels peaked in 2005, and supplies are in a terminal decline that will lead to higher prices (and oil company profits) until global consumption and the lack of available oil sends society into an economic tailspin, widespread blackouts, and famine.
The author, who acquired key information from insiders in the military, special ops, and the oil industry, says he wrote the book as a cautionary tale in an attempt to stave off what he believes is coming down the road.
