Confessions of an Economic Hit-Man

John Perkins served the US establishment for many years through his work as an Economic Hit Man, negotiating major contracts with developing countries in order to serve the interests of Corporate America.  In his tell-all book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, Perkins reveals some insight into the real behind-the-scenes work of US foreign policy.  He writes, “Economic hit men are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions 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.”  RNP US Correspondent Jill Bolstridge interviews John Perkins, author of the New York Times Bestseller, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
