John Perkins, author of ‘Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,’ speaks

January 28, 2011

To get a real insight into why the world is in the state it is today, one cannot ignore the words of a former economic hit man.

John Perkins, in his book, said “Economic hit men are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillion of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as Empire but one that has taken on terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.”

Wow, you would say, “can this be true?” My response to you would be why not read his book and find out for yourself. Since Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (2006), John Perkins has written two other equally riveting tell-all true scenarios that are still being played out today – The Secret History of the American Empire (2007), and, Hoodwinked (2009).

For a taste of what one can expect, here are 3 videos you may want to watch before you rush to the bookstore …
