Bernard Jacobs edited the summary of The Plan Tuesday, December 18, 2012.
The Plan is a political thriller based on actual current historical events that suggest the near future. The U.S. economy of 2015 remains mired in a cycle of debt and decline. President Winters sets out to acquire the financial resources necessary to restore. In a radicalized world of the President's making, taunted Islamic expatriates demonstrate violently against their European hosts. A threatened Iran seeks untraditional alliances. A nuclear-armed Pakistan encourages Israel to consider a multiple first strike. Traditional political alliances crumble, new leaders emerge. Outgoing rulers follow their personal wealth to the safety of the United States. Foreign investment swells America's coffers - all in reaction to the President's nefarious intrusions.
