In this searing exposéformer Wall Street insider Nomi Prins shows how the 2007-2008 financial crisis turbo-boosted the influence of central bankers and triggered a massive shift in the world order.

Central banks and international institutions like the IMF have overstepped their traditional mandates by directing the flow of epic sums of fabricated money without any checks or balances. Meanwhile, the open door between private and central banking has ensured endless opportunities for market manipulation and asset bubbles — with government support.

Through on-the-ground reporting, Prins reveals how five regions and their central banks reshaped economics and geopolitics. She discloses how Mexico navigated its relationship with the US while striving for independence and how Brazil led the BRICS countries to challenge the US dollar’s hegemony. She explains how China’s retaliation against the Fed’s supremacy is aiding its ongoing ascent as a global superpower and how Japan is negotiating the power shift from the West to the East. And she illustrates how the European response to the financial crisis fueled instability that manifests itself in everything from rising populism to the shocking Brexit vote.

Packed with tantalizing details about the elite players orchestrating the world economy — from Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi to Ben Bernanke and Christine Lagarde — Collusion takes the reader inside the most discreet conversations at exclusive retreats like Jackson Hole and Davos. A work of meticulous reporting and bracing analysis, Collusion will change the way we understand the new world of international finance.


CHARACTERS: The Conjurers of Money

Shinzo Abe: Japan’s prime minister since December 2012. He had occupied the post in 2006–2007 but resigned because of health issues. After that, Japan was governed by five prime ministers, none of whom stayed in charge for more than sixteen months. Abe’s second term as prime minister was marked by his decision to make economic policy a priority. His economic strategy consisted of three points: monetary expansion, flexible fiscal policy, and structural reform aimed at long-term investments, and is referred to as “Abenomics.”

Tarō Asō: Japan’s deputy prime minister and finance minister from December 2012 to present. He served as Japan’s prime minister from September 2008 to September 2009.

Ben S. Bernanke (“Helicopter Ben”): Succeeded Alan Greenspan as the chairman of the board of governors at the Federal Reserve System for two terms from 2006 to February 2014. He was responsible for leading the monetary policy actions in response to the international financial crisis.

Mark Joseph Carney: Governor of the Bank of England from July 2013 to present. He was governor of the Bank of Canada from February 2008 through June 2013. Earlier in his career, he worked for Goldman Sachs for thirteen years in London, New York, Toronto, and Tokyo.

Agustín Carstens: Governor of Banco de México from 2010 to October 2017. He served as Mexico’s finance minister from December 2006 until December 2009. He was deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund from 2003 to 2006. He was runner-up for IMF president to Christine Lagarde.

Draghi was governor of the Bank of Italy from December 2005 to 2011 and vice chairman and managing director at Goldman Sachs International from 2002 to 2005. Draghi’s ECB presidency has been marked by zero and negative interest rates and major quantitative easing measures. His policies have come under scrutiny in Europe, because Europe has not demonstrated any significant signs of real recovery.

Toshihiko Fukui: Governor of the Bank of Japan from 2003 to 2008, incorporating forty years of service there.

Timothy F. Geithner: US Treasury secretary from January 2009 to January 2013. He was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York from 2003 to 2009.

Kuroda is a key figure in applying Prime Minister Abe’s economic policy; he was responsible for leading Japan into the negative interest rates zone.

Christine Lagarde: Managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from July 2011 to present. She won the slot against governor of the Bank of Mexico, Agustín Carstens. Lagarde had worked for the French government since 2005, in the posts of minister of agriculture and fisheries and minister of finance and economy. She was chairwoman of the G20 when France was in charge of its presidency in 2011.

Joaquim Vieira Ferreira Levy: A naval engineer with a PhD in economics from the University of Chicago. He was secretary of Brazil’s National Treasury during the first Lula da Silva government and minister of finance in 2015 in the Rousseff government.

In early 2016 he temporarily assumed the position of chief of staff of the presidency of the republic at the end of Rousseff’s government. He was convicted and sentenced for several charges of corruption in the context of Operation Car Wash.

Guido Mantega: Coined the term “currency wars”; he was the most controversial minister of finance of Brazil through the second government of Lula and first government of Rousseff. He is considered responsible for the takeoff of Brazil in international markets of assets, commodities, and investments and the decline of the Brazilian economy.

Guillermo Ortiz Martínez: Former governor of Banco de México from 1998 to 2009. From 1994 to 1997, he served as the secretary of finance and public credit under the Zedillo administration.

After leaving the Treasury, Paulson founded the Paulson Institute to promote sustainable growth cooperation initiatives between the United States and China.

Dilma Vana Rousseff: President of Brazil from 2011 until 2016 (reelected in 2014); she was removed after an irregular impeachment process. She worked in the government of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva as minister of mines and energy from 2003 to 2005 and chief of staff from 2005 to 2010. During that time, she was chairwoman of the board of directors of Petrobras.

To research this book, I set out on a global expedition. I visited Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasília, Porto Alegre, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, London, Berlin, and many cities throughout the United States. I navigated high-speed railways through China’s countryside, witnessed anti-impeachment demonstrations in Brazil, sipped coffee with students, farmers, and small business owners throughout Mexico, and traversed the offices and halls of the US Congress.

The journey included my return to China, where I had first visited as a young banker working for the now-defunct investment bank Lehman Brothers. Financial instruments were less complex in the late 1980s and early 1990s. But it was a time when the role of finance was rapidly changing. So was the nature of the global economy and the risk imposed upon it by bankers. They altered it, trade by trade, bet by bet.

At the time, I was working on the futures and options desk while moving from my master’s to PhD coursework in statistics. I held a purist attitude about analytics (the math behind financial instruments) in contrast with the cocky, salesperson mentality of other colleagues pushing financial products. In my early twenties, I’d argue with the salespeople I worked with, one in particular, about the numbers and who got credit for what new analytical approach. Taking credit, whether or not it was yours to take, was part of the Wall Street survival tool kit. I was never particularly good at that part.

To quell the bickering, management decided to send me and that salesperson on a road trip together—around Asia. If we didn’t kill each other, in the process we’d sell some products or, at least, open accounts. I’d explain the math; the salesperson would sell the products. He was a hothead, but in the end, after various near-death experiences, including our driver’s rush against oncoming traffic to get us to the airport in the Philippines, we reached a truce and garnered some business for Lehman in Asia.

I didn’t realize it then, but the “product” we were trying to sell to the Chinese contained both financial and political underpinnings, as so many do. The People’s Bank of China held more reserves in US Treasury bonds than any other central bank. We introduced them to one of our products called “Term TED Spreads.” We would sell them US Treasury bonds and they would short, or sell back, a “strip” of exchange-traded futures and thereby lock in what was called a Treasury Eurodollar (or TED) spread. It was supposed to represent the way the market viewed the integrity of US government credit against that of LIBOR,1 a rate set by a consortium of major banks. LIBOR would later be criminally manipulated by big banks in the lead-up to the financial crisis of 2007–2008.

Lehman profited from selling both the bonds and the futures. Term TED Spreads was a basic product, but its mechanics were similar to the more complex ones to come. The early nineties represented a simple time, from a central bank perspective. The power of central banks over markets and economies was contained. Though I didn’t know it then, I would be working with and analyzing central banks for the better part of the next three decades.

I left Lehman shortly after that trip and took a position at Bear Stearns in London at which I created the financial analytics department. During my time there, the euro premiered as the official currency of the Eurozone. The Asian crisis struck. Bill Clinton was impeached. The Glass-Steagall Act, which had prohibited bank deposits from being used to fuel speculative activities within big banks, was repealed. Increasingly complex derivatives were sold to the portfolios of any entity with enough cash or credit to buy them, even if that credit came from the sellers of those derivatives.

Returning to New York in 2000, I worked as a managing director at Goldman Sachs, where I was responsible for the analytics underlying a rapidly evolving product, credit derivatives. I also ran a swat team that “hunted” for “white elephant” transactions tailored especially for major financial clients and corporations. The internal pressures within the firm regarding that “hunt” were intense. Wall Street had become less focused on client risk as products became more complicated and lucrative. One senior manager advised me that, if I wanted to get ahead at Goldman, I had to make upper management my clients, not the external customers. That was a pivotal moment for me; though a steady stream of internal politics at Goldman, on Wall Street, and in the corporate world at large is a constant presence, to have it so plainly spelled out stopped me cold. It was the kind of moment from which there is no turning back. It was friendly advice as well, but it just didn’t sit well with me.

Shortly after, the entire country was shattered by the events of 9/11. We each have our stories from those days, where we were, what went through our minds, how it changed us as people, as a nation. For me, those tense moments walking up Broadway away from Wall Street with the acrid, debris-filled smoke of the Twin Towers in the air, was a last straw. I left Goldman Sachs. Partly because life was too short. Partly out of disgust at how citizens everywhere had become collateral damage, and later hostages, to the banking system. Since then, I’ve dedicated my life to exposing the intersections of money and power and deciphering the impact of the relationships between governments and central and private bankers on the citizens of the world.

In 2004, I explored those post-1970s alliances in my first book, Other People’s Money: The Corporate Mugging of America. In that thesis, I warned of the calamities that would ensue as a result of credit derivatives, then a tiny blip on the banking and business media radar. Although other analysts eventually reached similar conclusions, I was one of the first “insiders” who explained when, why, and how this crisis would unfold. What happened following the repeal of the bipartisan-passed 1933 Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 was unavoidable. As long as people’s deposits remained fodder for reckless speculation, I wrote, the world was at risk. Indeed, a few years later, the US economy collapsed, taking down markets and economies around the globe. Some people said banks weren’t to blame, people who couldn’t afford their mortgages were. But that’s not a logical conclusion if you do the math and know how banks create and sell mortgages.

The financial crisis began three years after my book came out and escalated through 2008. Those events led to my next book, It Takes a Pillage: Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street. The book tapped into the psyche of Wall Street, revealing how the very structure of the financial system hinged on traders flocking to the next big bet, regardless of the stakes. In addition, the same people and families kept popping up, cycling through Wall Street and Washington. They influenced the economy beneath them from their loftier heights of status, private money, and public office, dismantling laws that stood in their way and finding loopholes in others. Private banks normalized market manipulation. Central banks made it an art form, with no limits.

The big banks, with their strong personal and legacy connections to the government and the backing of central banks, particularly the Fed in the United States, thrived through economic and geopolitical conflict. Their bloodlines and family connections spanned a century. In my book All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power, I dug deeper. The project took me to presidential libraries across the country. I perused documents untouched for decades—or ever—that supported one conclusion: relationships matter.

Whether central bankers proclaim to support or oppose each other matters. In Collusion, I expose these international relationships and the power grab of central bankers at the Fed, European Central Bank, Bank of Japan, and other central banks that have fabricated or “conjured” money to fund banking activities at the people’s expense. Since the financial crisis, these illusionists have created money, altered the nature of the financial system, and orchestrated a de facto heist that enables the most powerful banks and central bankers to run the world.

The concept for Collusion cohered in my mind after I was invited to address the Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Bank in June 2015. Because I had been vocal about labeling recent central bank policies “insane,” at first I thought the invitation was a mistake; I even asked as much of the Fed office that invited me. Their response was, “We are looking forward to what you have to say.”

In the well-appointed and historic boardroom where the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) sets monetary policy, I was to address a roomful of international central bankers in the morning kick-off session of the three-day global conference. The boardroom was situated upstairs from the portrait of Carter Glass, who helped steer President Woodrow Wilson’s proposal for the Federal Reserve System that culminated in the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 through Washington. In 1919, Glass became Wilson’s Treasury secretary, succeeding William G. McAdoo in the role.2 Glass in memoriam watched over the atrium where we had our group photograph taken that morning to commemorate the occasion. The central bankers hailed from the same institutions that routinely met at G7 and G20 and other multinational central bank gatherings around the world. My host placed me at the front of the room.

Chair of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen opened the event, indicating the banking system was better but some instability still lurked. She was followed by an assistant Treasury secretary who touted the accomplishments of the Obama administration in combatting financial risk with the Dodd-Frank Act (which didn’t actually break up the banks). Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, fresh from a meeting with the pope, reminded everyone of their responsibility to help the poor.

Then it was my turn. I explained why years of supporting a private banking system of recidivist felons with no strings attached couldn’t possibly lend itself as a panacea for financial or economic stability. “You have the power to do better,” I told the central bankers. But the real question is, “Do you have the will?” For what began as an “emergency” monetary policy had morphed into an ongoing norm and provoked a shake-up of the world economic order.

Over the days of that conference and ever since, multiple global central bankers (including from the Fed and IMF) have thanked me privately for my honesty. Yet their policies have barely changed at all. No significant regulations have been introduced to fix the structural problems behind the last financial crisis. Banks and the markets have been subsidized by quantitative easing and conjured-money policy. Central banks have colluded to provide global artificial money and subsidies as they see fit rather than to actualize authentic, long-term, tangible growth and stability or require anything in return from the big banks they helped the most.

Whether the broad population knows it or not, this collusion among the most elite central banks has run rampant and deep. Worse, central bankers have no exit strategy for their policies, no great unwind plan, despite repeatedly throwing out words that indicate they do. It’s like pushing a huge snowball to the edge of a cliff and hoping the cliff will morph into a valley before the snowball plunges and destroys whatever is in its way below.

Which means we are headed for another epic fall. The question is not if, but when.


It is not the responsibility of the Federal Reserve—nor would it be appropriate—to protect lenders and investors from the consequences of their decisions.

—Ben Bernanke, Federal Reserve chairman, 2007

The 2007–2008 US financial crisis was the consequence of a loosely regulated banking system in which power was concentrated in the hands of too limited a cast of speculators. Since the crisis, G7 central banks have pumped money into private banks through an unconventional monetary policy process called quantitative easing (QE). QE is an overtly complex term that entails a central bank manufacturing electronic money and then injecting it into banks and financial markets in return for purchasing bonds or securities (or stocks). The result of this maneuver is to lift the money supply within the financial system, reduce interest rates (or the cost of borrowing money, disproportionally in favor of the bigger banks and corporations), and boost the value of those securities. The whole codependent cycle is what I call a “conjured-money” scheme, wherein the cost of money is rendered abnormally cheap.

Speculation raged in the wake of this abundant cheap capital much as a global casino would be abuzz if everyone gambled using someone else’s money. Yet bank lending did not grow, nor did wages or prosperity, for most of the world’s population. Instead, central bankers created asset bubbles through their artificial stimulation of banks and markets. When these bubbles pop, the fragile financial system and economic world underlying them could be thrown into an economic depression. That’s why central banks are so desperate to collude.
