The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

by John Perkins Author

"Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe our 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 new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.

I should know; I was an EHM."


This expanded edition of the classic New York Times bestseller shines light on the cancerous EHM system in America and around the world. It has, according to John Perkins, become the dominant system of business, government, and society. Not all doom and gloom, though. Perkins balances his tell-all by telling us what we can do to bring about change.
