Master's dissertation (USMC Command and Staff College, Marine Corps University, 2016).
Thesis: The purpose and strategy of counterfeiting as an instrument of war to destabilize the US economy has not changed since the US Civil War, but technology into the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has changed and it is increasingly more difficult and expensive to keep ahead of both government-sponsored counterfeiting operations in Iran and North Korea and transnational narcoterrorist counterfeiting operations in Colombia. If successful counterfeiting becomes pervasive, it has the capacity to depress the overall value of the US dollar and destroy the world’s confidence in the US monetary system.
