Global financial terrorism: A conversation with author Kevin Freeman
Kevin Freeman recommends you buy gold, store bottled water in your basement, and get a generator so you can live "off the power grid" if the USA ever comes under attack. If you think that makes him a candidate for the reality television program Doomsday Prepper, you need to know that some of America's top national security officials take him seriously.
The Pentagon has used Freeman as a consultant on the impact of cyber attacks on our financial system. That consulting work became the basis for his 2012 book Secret Weapon, a New York Times bestseller.
His new book is Game Plan: How to Protect Yourself from the Coming Cyber-Economic Attack (Regnery, 2014).
In the 1990s, Mr. Freeman helped legendary investor Sir John Templeton build Templeton Investment’s private client group into one of the largest wealth management practices of its time, with more than $2.5-billion under management.
