Synopsis

In Becoming China’s Bitch, Peter D. Kiernan presents an unflinching manifesto in which he explores five factors that keep us frozen. He then uncovers the ten challenges that pose the greatest threat to our future. Presented from a fresh yet informative perspective, these ten impending catastrophes include our semiconscious dependency on China, our lack of a coordinated intelligence effort, our downward-spiraling health-care and education systems, our missing-in-action energy policy, and the continually expanding problem of illegal immigration. In a logical, personal, and persuasive voice, Kiernan then offers radical yet practical solutions that every American must acknowledge and act upon—before it’s too late.

Reading his ravings, I can only conclude that something went badly awry with the bank’s famously rigorous recruitment processes.
