“Money is the Weapon”– The Challenge of Financial Terrorism . . .The Fund, a new novel by H.T. Narea

Last evening, it was my honor to moderate a panel discussion on “Financial Terrorism: The Next Global Battlefield.” The panel was sponsored by the DC Metro Club of the Georgetown University Alumni Association and featured Georgetown alum and MSFS professor, H.T. Narea, and Kevin D. Freeman, the author of “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses.” The panel was organized to celebrate the release of Narea’s brilliant new novel, The Fund.

I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of The Fund several months ago. It is one of the best books I’ve read! A suspenseful thriller, The Fund weaves a fascinating tale and poses many questions about the real-world challenge of financial terrorism.

Needless to say, the panel discussion did not give away the plot of the book, but it did explore the nature of financial terrorism and discuss efforts to combat it. Both Narea and Freeman had extremely insightful observations, and there were excellent questions and comments from the audience. Freeman, who was commissioned by the Department of Defense, to author a study on the problem noted the similarities between his analysis and the issues raised in The Fund. When the video of the panel is available, I will post it. In the meantime, I recommend you buy The Fund!
