Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins

Book Description

As an Economic Hitman (EHM), John Perkins helped further American imperial interests in countries such as Ecuador, Panama, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. As Chief Economist for the international consulting firm Chas. T. Main, he convinced underdeveloped countries to accept massive loans for infrastructure development and ensured that the projects were contracted to multinational corporations. The countries acquired enormous debt, and the US and international aid agencies were able to control their economies. He tried to write this book four times but was threatened or bribed each time to halt. The events of 9/11 - a direct result of the activities of EHMs in the 1970s - finally forced him to confront the role he played himself, and to reveal the truth to the rest of the world. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man has become a word-of-mouth bestseller in the US. It has been called the book that finally 'connects the dots, the book that best explains what is really going on in the world'.

John Perkins was covertly recruited to be an economic hit man (EHM) by the US National Security Agency during his last year at Boston University's School of Business Administration, in the late 1960s. As Chief Economist for the international consulting firm Chas. T.

The countries acquired enormous debt, and the US and international aid agencies were able to control their economies.
