Current Book


The current book we are reading is The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins, 2015 about 330 pages.

This is an updated version of the original book, published in 2004. It features 15 explosive new chapters, this new edition of the New York Times bestseller brings the story of Economic Hit Men up-to-date and, chillingly, home to the U. S.but it also gives us hope and the tools to fight back.
See the link below for much more about this book on Amazon.

About the Author
John Perkins worked from 1971 to 1981 for an international consulting firm as a chief economist and manager of economics and regional planning but, in reality, was an economic hit man, a role he kept secret until the events of 9/11 convinced him to expose his past.


From Amazon:

Mr. Perkinss core message is that American corporations and government agencies employ two types of operatives: economic hit men, who bribe emerging economies, and jackals, who may be used to overthrow or even murder heads of state in Latin America and the Middle East to serve the greater cause of American empire. . . . [This} book seems to have tapped into a larger vein of discontent and mistrust that Americans feel toward the ties that bind together corporations, large lending institutions and the government a nexus that Mr. Perkins and others call the corporatocracy.
