The author, former partner at Goldman Sachs, who made money from promoting the offshoring of American jobs, and selling credit derivatives to China, now tells us they are the "soft" enemy? They who created the problem and profited from it, always seem to also want to "create the solution" and profit from that as well? Sorry, Petey, but a bogus book is a bogus book, Goldman Sachs guy!
