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. 
  • The West/NATO are losing the proxy war in Ukraine aimed at regime change in Russia. Even the mainstream media are now hinting that Ukraine may lose this war.
  • Dedollarization looms on the horizon. China, Russia, Brazil, India, ASEAN nations, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE are now using local currencies in trade. Saudi Arabia is selling oil in yuan; UAE is selling gas in yuan. Ghana (and other oil-producing countries) are now selling oil in gold instead of dollars. France – the United States’ oldest ally – is now trading with China in yuan. China and Brazil are now trading in each other’s currencies India and Malaysia are currently using the Indian rupee for trade. The BRICS  is  developing its own currency, but more immediately, work-arounds to enable trading outside of the US dollar system.
  • The geopolitical shift has been breathtaking, with the BRICS nations — Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa — setting themselves up as an alternative to existing international financial and political forums.  Who is coming on board? Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Ethiopia and Iran.
This book’s geopolitical analysis includes a historical overview, an understanding of the financial systems established at the Bretton Woods conference that continue dominating the global economy, how they are used as a powerful geopolitical instrument, an economic analysis based on real goods production, global energy dynamics, alliances and strategies of key global players. The current global geopolitical clash is in essence a struggle between the colonial powers wishing to preserve the Bretton Woods system that allows siphoning wealth of nations, and sovereign nations striving for independence and an end to a millennium of oppression. 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.

“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 

        

 

 

Description

Geopolitical upheaval has gripped the world since collapse of the Soviet Union. During the 1990s the West focused on eliminating the resurgence of Russia as a great power. This led to the assimilation of Warsaw Pact countries into NATO, two Chechen wars, and political systems in the Central Asian republics aligned with the West.

Russia’s economic destruction was managed by the Harvard boys‘ shock therapy, which left Russian resources in the control of a few oligarchs aligned with the West. By the end of the 1990s Russia was a weak, bankrupt country of marginalized influence in the world.

Then the West’s focus turned to China as a potential challenger to western global hegemony. It was thought to suffice to control global energy resources and sea-lanes to China to prevent China from challenging western global hegemony. Hence the first two decades of the millennium were focused on controlling West Asia and North Africa‘s energy resources.

For most, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 signaled the victory of the self-denominated Free World. Why the West Can’t Win, however, addresses how events in the three following decades signal the end of a millennium of West European expansionism, a plundering and oppression initially labeled Crusades when the popes embodied political power, morphing into colonialism, then to the Free World when colonialism went out of fashion post-World War II, and at last to the “International Community” after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

This book’s geopolitical analysis includes a historical overview, an understanding of the financial systems established at the Bretton Woods conference that continue dominating the global economy, how they are used as a powerful geopolitical instrument, an economic analysis based on real goods production, global energy dynamics, alliances and strategies of key global players.

It addresses the emerging division of the world into two geopolitical groups: a Western Realm dominated by the United States, and a Sovereign World of self-determining countries protected from the Empire by the Russia/Iran/China (RIC) core.

The current global geopolitical clash is in essence a struggle between the colonial powers wishing to preserve the Bretton Woods system that allows siphoning wealth of nations, and sovereign nations striving for independence and an end to a millennium of oppression. 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.
