Description : Between 1973 and 1980, the cost of crude oil rose suddenly and dramatically, precipitating convulsions in international politics. Conventional wisdom holds that international capital markets adjusted automatically and remarkably well: enormous amounts of money flowed into oil-rich states, and efficient markets then placed that new money in cash-poor Third World economies. David Spiro has followed the money trail, and the story he tells contradicts the accepted beliefs. Most of the sudden flush of new oil wealth didn't go to poor oil-importing countries around the globe. Instead, the United States made a deal with Saudi Arabia to sell it U.S. securities in secret, a deal resulting in a substantial portion of Saudi assets being held by the U.S. government. With this arrangement, the U.S. government violated its agreements with allies in the developed world. Spiro argues that American policymakers took this action to prop up otherwise intolerable levels of U.S. public debt. In effect, recycled OPEC wealth subsidized the debt-happy policies of the U.S. government as well as the debt-happy consumption of its citizenry.

Description : Race Williams had run across criminals before, and a few shots to the head always took care of such threats. But how can Race deal with four separate rogues at once? And what of their ultimate leader, The Hidden Hand? Story #19 in the Race Williams series. Carroll John Daly (1889–1958) was the creator of the first hard-boiled private eye story, predating Dashiell Hammett's first Continental Op story by several months.

Description : There is a place in Him where we can be in touch with Him, where no talking is necessary. This is like when a young couple first falls in love, they just want to be in each others presence; they can sit in each others company for hours. They are communicating on an intimate level where words are not necessary. I have seen couples adjust their schedules just to be with each other. They will stay up late, even if they have to get up early for work the next day; they will hang on the to the phone for hours just to hear the others breath. They are chatting with their hearts to each otherheart to heart, breast to breastconversing. Most of us do not know Him with this level of intimacy, and the sad part is that we do not know Him. It is possible to know a great deal about God without much knowledge of Him. We often find ourselves having a deep interest in religion, and this is all well, but the ability to be able to think clearly and talk well about Christian subjects is not the same as knowing Him One must know the heartbeat and pulse of God in order to stay closely connected with Him.
Description : This book rants against Freemasonry, Satan, international banks, Napoleon and more. It makes a series of unsubstantiated claims against Jews and possibly substantiated ones against the Rothschilds of his time. If one can put the authors personal biases aside, there remains some good historical information about government, religion, world power and money. The publishers do not agree with the authors biased opinions, but wish to make the remaining facts available to those interested. Conspiracy buffs will enjoy it immensely. The book, in its entirety, should not be taken at face valuethe truth that exists within it must be carefully extracted.
