An investigation of how the US empire continues to enslave much of humanity, both at home and abroad.
´Kennard reports with devastating precision.´
Naomi Klein

While working at the Financial Times , investigative journalist Matt Kennard uncovered a scam - a deception and rip-off of immense proportions.

From slanging matches with Henry Kissinger to afternoon coffees with the man who captured Che Guevara, Kennard´s unbridled access over four years to the crème de la crème of the global elite left him with only one conclusion: the world as we know it is run by a squad of cigar-smoking men with big guns, big cash and a reach much too close to home.

But, through encounters with high-profile opponents of the racket, such as Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn, Gael García Bernal and others, Kennard shows that human decency remains. Now it´s time for the world´s citizens to also uncover the racket.
