“The Samurai Strategy” by Thomas Hoover
Set in the financial reality of the mid 80’s, right on the threshold of the new digital millennium, “The Samurai Strategy” shrewdly predicts the upcoming “saving and loan crisis” that ravages the US economy until the mid 90`s. This was the first book to address the vulnerabilities of the American economy which led to the bankruptcy of half of the Saving and loan banks in the country. The freelance corporate “takeover” lawyer – Matthew Walton, ends up in the middle of this financial conspiracy after he gets hired by a mysterious Japanese investor. His contractor is planing on acquiring an office building in New York from where to begin massive “hedging” operations. At the same time in Inland Sea, a diving operation funded by the same corporation retrieves the ancient sword of the first Emperor of Japan. Having possession of the artifact, the industrialist forms an “800-Year Fund” and uses it to unleash a major financial attack to destroy the American economy. The only person in power to prevent this is Walton, but can he alone resist the might of the uprising Japanese nationalism?
