Pentagon preps for economic warfare – Eamon Javers – POLITICO.com

But instead of military brass plotting America’s defense, it was hedge-fund managers, professors and executives from at least one investment bank, UBS – all invited by the Pentagon to play out global scenarios that could shift the balance of power between the world’s leading economies.

Their efforts were carefully observed and recorded by uniformed military officers and members of the U.S. intelligence community.

In the end, there was sobering news for the United States – the savviest economic warrior proved to be China, a growing economic power that strengthened its position the most over the course of the war-game.

In these dark days, thank Christ we got the Pentagon out there teaming up with hedge-fund managers and investment bankers. The world is saved.
