About this book
As an economic hit man in the 60s and 70s, Perkins helped further American imperial interests by convincing underdeveloped countries to accept massive loans. The countries acquired enormous debt and the US and international aid agencies were able to control their economies. This book describes all and has been a word-of-mouth bestseller in the U.S. *Also appeared in February Buyer's Notes*
As an EHM in the '60s and '70s, covertly recruited by the US National Security Agency, John Perkins helped further American imperial interests in countries such as Ecuador, Panama, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. He tried to write this book four times but was threatened or bribed each time to halt. The events of 9/11 forced him to reveal the truth.
