Confessions of an economic hit man

I read John Perkins’ book when it first came out, and for some reason, I never finished it. So this week I picked it up again and boy, is it depressing.

“Hit Man” was attacked by many people as a far-fetched conspiracy theory. Those people must not do much reading. Which part bothers them: That corporations purposely saddle countries with unaffordable debt so they can dictate corporate-friendly policies, or that they never heard of such things, so it must not be true?

  1. It’s corporations working hand in glove with governments which do this. IIRC, aren’t the Econ Hit Men really employed by straw corporations which represent US government objectives?
