From the author of the phenomenal New York Times bestseller, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, comes an exposé of international corruption? and an inspired plan to turn the tide for future generations With a presidential election around the corner, questions of America?s military buildup, environmental impact, and foreign policy are on everyone?s mind. Former ?Economic Hit Man? John Perkins goes behind the scenes of the current geopolitical crisis and offers bold solutions to our most pressing problems. Drawing on interviews with other EHMs, jackals, CIA operatives, reporters, businessmen, and activists, Perkins reveals the secret history of events that have created the current American Empire, including: ? How the ?defeats? in Vietnam and Iraq have benefited big business ? The role of Israel as ?Fortress America? in the Middle East ? Tragic repercussions of the IMF?s ?Asian Economic Collapse? ? The current Latin American revolution and its lessons for democracy ? U.S. blunders in Tibet, Congo, Lebanon, and Venezuela From the U.S. military in Iraq to infrastructure development in Indonesia, from Peace Corps volunteers in Africa to jackals in Venezuela, Perkins exposes a conspiracy of corruption that has fueled instability and anti-Americanism around the globe, with consequences reflected in our daily headlines. Having raised the alarm, Perkins passionately addresses how Americans can work to create a more peaceful and stable world for future generations.

4.0 Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

4.0 The story of a modern day slave-master
It is a little ironic that I am sitting in McDonalds, the flagship of corporate America, writing a commentary on a book about the evils of corporate America. Maybe that is why they wouldn't let me onto their free wi-fi. Anyway, I have got internet (thankyou Telstra) simply by turning my mobile phone...

4.0 الاغتيال الاقتصادى للأمم
كنت متخوفة عند شروعي في قراءة هذا الكتاب والذي يبدو من اسمه اني سأواجه تعقيدات إحصائية لن أفهمها ولكن كان هذا عكس توقعاتي تماما . كان الكتاب سيرة ذاتية لما اطلقه على نفسه "إعترافات قرصان إقتصاد" فالكتاب لغته سلسة كحكاية يخبرنا فيها طبيعة عمله وكيف حققوا أهدافهم المنشودة في معظم بلدان العالم.يعد تلخي...
