Longtime commodities trader Raymond J. Learsy lifts the veil of the Mideast oil cartel, showing how OPEC manipulates the oil markets and destabilizes the world's economy. With refreshing candor and an insider's perspective, Learsy explains how OPEC:

  • twists bogus perceptions of oil scarcity to hike prices and gain political power
  • is compromised by Islamist terrorist connections that fuel anti-American hatred with dollars from our own wallets
  • keeps Third-World nations in abject poverty despite their rich oil deposits
  • and became the de facto master of Iraq's newly liberated oil fields

A sharp, sweeping survey of OPEC's methods of economic dominance, this book explains how to bust the Mideast oil cartel and chart our own course toward energy independence.

Raymond J. Learsy made his life in the fast-paced, risk filled world of commodities trading beginning in 1959. In 1963, he started his own firm and over twenty years expanded it internationally.

Learsy's richly informed analysis of the international oil trade, OPEC, and its impact on the American and world economy has been featured in National Review Online and the New York Times. He currently resides in Connecticut. He currently blogs for the Huffington Post.
