About the Editor

patbio-editor.jpgPatrick M. Wood is editor of The August Fore­cast and The August Review. The August Fore­cast pro­vides a suc­cinct look for­ward to ana­lyze trends relating to mar­kets, eco­nomics, pol­i­tics and finance; The August Review is an his­tor­ical review of global elitism, its players and policies.

He founded The August Cor­po­ra­tion on October 11, 1975. As a reg­is­tered invest­ment adviser with the Secu­ri­ties and Exchange Com­mis­sion, the com­pany ini­tially offered port­folio man­age­ment ser­vices to investors in the United States until 1980.

In 1978, Wood com­menced pub­li­ca­tion of The Tri­lat­eral Observer (TO), to specif­i­cally track and doc­u­ment the activ­i­ties of The Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion, which was then seen to be the very core of elitism and multi-nationalism in the United States and abroad. TO was co-edited by Pro­fessor Antony Sutton, for­merly a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Insti­tu­tion for War, Peace and Rev­o­lu­tion at Stan­ford University.

Wood and Sutton co-authored two suc­ces­sive book vol­umes, Tri­lat­erals Over Wash­ington — Volume I and Tri­lat­erals Over Wash­ington — Volume II.

Tri­lat­erals Over Wash­ington quickly became a best-seller and over the course of about two years, sold over 75,000 copies inter­na­tion­ally. The books were very well received for excel­lent schol­ar­ship and orig­inal research, and even became a frequently-used text­book in polit­ical sci­ence classes at many col­leges in U.S. universities.
