WHY THE WEST CAN’T WIN: From Bretton Woods to a Multipolar World

Why the West Can’t Win: From Bretton Woods to a Multipolar World addresses how events in the three decades following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 have led to a shake-up in the world’s balance of power, signaling  the end of a millennium of West European expansionism.  Beginning with the war in Ukraine for regime change in Russia, events have proceeded at a blistering pace.  This work compares the geopolitical forces since the turn of the millennium with a view to providing insight into their relative strengths and the likely outcome of this struggle.


“Lama’s book goes squarely against the mainstream tide and is a ‘voice of the Rest’. … A new balance is in the making. Lama’s book sheds a piercing light on these developments.” JAN NEDERVEEN PIETERSE, New Global Studies 2024 

“A must read. One of the best primers on the economic forces shaping modern geopolitics. A no-filler, unrelenting assault of facts and figures which expose the main reasons for the West’s decline and its eventual fading into economic, military and cultural mediocrity, if not irrelevance.” ANDREI MARTYANOV, Author, Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning and Disintegration: Indicators of the Coming American Collapse

“With his book Why the West Can’t Win, Fadi Lama has presented an extraordinary insight into the history and present-day nature of the financial oligarchy, of what he accurately calls “the Money Power.”  He strips away the usual façade of what passes for political analysis and introduces the reader to the actual nature of how nations and governments have been made the servants of an imperial financial system.  It is a thorough and well-documented work.  Very unsettling and thought-provoking.” ROBERT INGRAHAM, Author of The Modern Anglo-Dutch Empire and former Editor, Executive Intelligence Review

“An ambitious book that concisely covers a wide range of factors shaping today’s geopolitical conflict. Lama traces a clear narrative from the colonial era through the Cold War and into the present day of how the Western world has striven to perpetuate a global order based on its dominance, and projects how he sees the international system evolving as this order faces growing challenges.” A. B. ABRAMS, Author, World War in Syria and Immovable Object: North Korea’s 70 Years At War with American Power.

“Author Fadi Lama explains the rise of the Western Money Power in controlling governments and societies worldwide and how it secured US dollar dominance through the neocolonialist policies established at Bretton Woods in 1944. Now, the non-Western world, led by China, is using state-controlled central banking to surpass the West in industrial productivity. The author has provided a brilliantly detailed analysis of the epochal forces that are dictating today’s massive shift in world geopolitical power.” RICHARD C. COOK, former Treasury analyst and Challenger whistleblower, Author, We Hold These Truths: The Hope of Monetary Reform
