About this title:

Synopsis:

... there, at the main entrance of the World Bank was this large inscription
“ Our Dream is a World Free of Poverty.”
He couldn’t go wrong, he thought.
Today, he often thinks the sentence should have been completed:

“... And we make sure it will just remain a dream.”

In this riveting economic thriller, Paul Jordon, a renegade World Banker, and Moni Cheng, an Andean woman who leads a socio-environmental nongovernmental organization in the Peruvian Amazon, endure kidnappings, bombings, and deadly chases in their fight against boundless capitalism, destructive economic policies, and corporate greed that are wreaking worldwide social injustice and destroying the globe’s richest zones of biodiversity.

Together, Jordon and Cheng expose corporate ruthlessness, military brutality, and Machiavellian economic policies of the foremost financial ivory towers of Washington, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund. With other visionaries from around the globe, Jordon and Cheng untiringly disseminate truth and candid information about the calamities caused by this cruel machinery. And against all odds, they mobilize the power of the people.

Richly detailed, grounded in actual events and statistics, and complete with notes from author and former World Bank economist Peter Koenig, Implosion is both an unsettling, gripping novel and a powerful commentary on the realities of the modern world’s corporatocracy.

About the Author: Peter Koenig has worked most of his career for the World Bank as an economist and water resources specialist. He has traveled extensively throughout the world and drawn ideas for many of the scenes in Implosion from his personal experiences. He and his wife live in Europe and South America. Their two daughters and son live in Geneva and Denver. Email Peter at implosion.pk@rcn.com.
