Up until September 1994, Joan Veon was just a businesswoman. As a result of attending the United Nations Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Egypt, she received her wake up call as she found there was more going on at the global level than most Americans knew, understood or were being told.
In her determination to understand the global level and what it really means for Americans, Joan has covered over 103 UN and UN-related conferences since Cairo which include the economic, political, environmental, military, peace-keeping, legal, trade and financial. They include (8) Group of Seven (now Eight), (6) Group of Seven Finance Ministers Meetings, (4) Group of Eight Foreign Ministers meetings, the International Organization for Security Commissions (IOSCO), the Rio Plus Five (follow-up to the Earth Summit), (6) World Economic Forum meetings, (2) Free Trade Areas of the Americas meetings, (5) Bank for International Settlements meetings, (2) Gorbachev State of the World Forums, various conferences at the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, Al Gores First Global Conference on Re-inventing Government, (2) World Trade Organization meetings, and others.
Joan is credentialed through USA Radio Network in Dallas, Texas and has appeared as a result guest on the Michael Reagan Show, the Derry Brownfield Show, Point of View, Radio Liberty, Jeff Rense, Southwest Radio Church, The Power Hour and others. She has asked questions and interviewed president and prime ministers, key United Nations/IMF/World Bank officials, Bank for International Settlement officials, Bank of England officials, high officials throughout the Clinton and Bush Administrations, multinational/transnational CEOs, and many others to understand the global agenda and how it relates to you and I living on the local level.

Joan has written two books, Prince Charles the Sustainable Prince which is in it fifth printing and discusses her belief that when the U.S. Senate signed the U.N. Charter in 1945 is when American officially entered world government and reverted back under British rule. This book documents the role of the British royal family as a formidable power working BEHIND the scenes of the UN and the role of Prince Charles with that of sustainable development and public-private partnerships.
Her second book, the United Nations Global Straitjacket is over 400 pages and is a handbook on world government. In it she explains the political structure of the United Nations, she discusses the coming global stock exchange, the International Criminal Court and gives a call to stand in the Gap.
Joan is working on her third book which will deal with the rise of royalty in world affairs.
