This sounds as an interesting, realistic book. But it's a close-up to the present situation, and the greater picture, i.e. the future of the world is wider, and what is happening in the present has been planned at least 100 yrs ago. It was planned 100 years ago and started to be realized that China will be the manufacturer of the world. What is going on now in the West with consumer capitalism, is the last kicks only of the old system. Dr. John Coleman in his book "The Conspirators' Hierarchy" (1992, 1997) [this book was in the VPL collection and I read it, but it has been taken out from the collection 3-4 yrs ago] - so, Dr. Coleman wrote there that according to plans the workers of the near future will be the Chinese and the Japanese. In the new system to come there will be no private property, no individual rights, no family units, no nation states. It will be forbidden to even utter one's own race or nationality. There will be no cash and barter trade will be strictly forbidden (we''ll be slaves of the bit cash system, which will be controlled by a Big B, and just imagine: BB will be able to stop anyone's account, He will be able to control what anyone can buy or not buy, and where anyone can buy it.) In fact, there was an article in the Toronto Star in Dec. 10, 2006, titled: "One Generation Is All They Need" (to chip the population with body implants) - the author was Kevin Haggerty. Ultimately, some sources say that a new type of selfless, peaceful humanoid robot will be genetically developed, and those will be the ultimate working class. Most people don't know that an East European (Hungarian) aristocrat wrote a theatrical drama titled "The Tragedy Of Man" and in Act 12 of it, 157 years ago (in 1861) the planned final economic ans social system is described, where everything will be scientifically controlled, all will be made in "the way most simple and most practical," there will be no family unit, only the group and no private property, under a scientific dictatorship. And this was not a "poetic vision" of the author: "Imre Madach", he learned it from somewhere (I found the English translation of it by William N. Loew in the New York main library). And, brace yourselves, Dr. Coleman in 1992 wrote almost the same details about the plan to change our "free capitalism" for a global dictatorial control system. If you still don't believe this, try to read "Agenda 21" of the United Nations. Dr. Coleman writes that there is a body of international experts, the "Committee of 300," who make decisions for the future of the world, and that body is at least 150 years old. Now, if you speak French, you will find the same details of our planned future announced toward the end of a Francophone film, titled: "L'Aventure C'est L'Aventure", where Jacques Brel, the famous chanson writer and singer, with a dubious looking cast tries to be humorous, but with not much success. How come they tell the same plan as Madach and Dr.Coleman? A new economic and social model is coming, bec. the Earth must be saved from the greedy, destructive human assault, which have, in a century, half destroyed it already. Resources are running out, Nature is being destroyed and the Earth and Oceans are being turned into trash dumps. The present "man" lives by the territorial animal instinct, protecting territory and self interest like crazy. To globalize the world, which is necessary, this must be overcome somehow, and there are various plans for it (the probable use of permanent mind altering chemicals, brain chips, and genetic modification of the basic human DNA). America will be united, Dr. Coleman writes about it - Canada, USA, Mexico and Chile will belong to it at first. When the Syrian refugees started to stream toward Europe, at the Southern border of Hungary a 180 km long fence was built and the refugees were greeted with flame throwers to keep them at bay. The future united world will be a new economic and social model.
