Gus R. Stelzer

Gus R. Stelzer is a retired executive of General Motors Corporation. In his last year with GM, he was responsible for 1,000 dealers and 35,000 employees who did $2 billion in annual sales. He is also a former member of the World Affairs Council, the institute of the Americas, and the Advisory Council of the School of Education, University of San Diego. He has published over 100 articles on trade and economics, including a 1987 booklet Free Trade and the Constitution.

In 1993, Stelzer was named a Director of the American Council for Economic security. He and the Council are working to regain America's sovereignty and reverse the 20-year decline of our social and economic order, through changes in trade, monetary and immigration policies.

In this book, Stelzer explodes the myth of a global economy and reveals how a Trojan horse, bearing an enticing, but fraudulent banner of Free Trade, is destroying America from within.

Despite a 3,000 percent increase in foreign trade since John F. Kennedy dreamed of a global Camelot, America is worse off from nearly every standpoint, including a national debt that has increased 1,420 percent to 4.5 trillion. [1994]
