— Antony Sutton, Testimony of the Author Before Subcommittee VII of the Platform Committee of the Republican Party, 1972

Anthony Sutton was an academic whose field of scholarship lead him beyond the bounds of what was acceptable to the establishment. In 1970, whist at the Hoover Institution, he wrote Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development (a major work, published in three volumes), on how Wall St. was continuing to support the Soviet Union with technology ans money transfers as a part of the perpetual war economy. In 1973, he published a condensed version called National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union, which became embarrassingly popular for the Hoover Institute, which asked him to leave. He continued to publish in a similar vein about the hidden influence of Wall st - his next 3 books were: Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler and Wall Street and FDR. Episode 675 reports that for undisclosed reasons, he refused to give public interviews for the last 20 years of his life.
