TORONTO (PRWEB) July 12, 2016
Modern warfare is constantly evolving. National security focuses primarily on preventing terrorist attacks and maintaining a strong, secure cyber network. Economic security is typically an afterthought to the general public, but the destabilization of global markets could be more devastating than any physical or digital attack the world has ever seen.
Few people understand this better than Michael Hyman and Andrew Capon, with over 50 years of experience in market analysis between them. Their new novel, “Tournament of Shadows,” is a unique financial thriller that demonstrates the latent danger of a potential economic collapse.
“The strongest military in the world cannot protect a fragile economy,” Hyman said. “Without financial strength, the United States could become a has-been.”
While the book concerns itself with a fictional story about a conspiracy to cripple the U.S., Hyman and Capon found inspiration for the plot in both history and current events.
“The U.S. is financially and economically over-extended,” Hyman said. “Nearly every great empire throughout history has fallen at least partly as a result of economic over-extension. If the U.S. doesn’t do something about it soon, it may be too late.”
