This is the inside story of how America turned from a respected republic into a feared empire. John Perkins should know, he was an economic hit man. His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the U.S., from Indonesia to Panama, to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to Halliburton, Bechtel, Brown and Root, and other United States engineering and construction companies.

People say, oh you must read this book. Finally I did, and I wasn't impressed. The only way I like this book is if I read it as a fictional book of a guy dealing with guilt. When it gets to the facts, it is so vague. His premise of his book is too simplified (get small nations in debt so that USA corporations and government control them, and blah blah blah). However, the effects of what happens to smaller nations because of international policy and corporate influence is worth examining, but this book is not it. The book isn't written well, as well.

Plain and simple.
This is the Red Pill.
For anyone who is concerned about the future of our Nation, the future of our children and grandchildren, it is imperative to understand the truth's about the insidiously controlling nature the Corporatocracy has played in our Nations history.
John Perkins reveals these truth's in "Confessions of an Economic Hitman."
And don't stop after this one; read his two successive books, "The Secret History of the American Empire" and "Hoodwinked."
