"A bombshell. One of those rare instances in which someone deeply
entrenched in our governmental/corporate imperialist structure has come forward to
reveal in unequivocal terms its inner workings. A work of great insight and moral
courage."John E. Mack, Harvard professor and Pulitzer Prize-winning author

"This riveting look at a world of intrigue reads like a spy novel.Highly
recommended."Library Journal

"[A] gripping tell-all book."Rocky Mountain News

John Perkins was an economic hit man. His job was to convince countries that are
strategically important to the United Statesfrom Indonesia to Panamato accept
enormous loans for infrastructure development and to make sure that the lucrative
projects were contracted to U.S. corporations, such as Halliburton and Bechtel.
Saddled with huge debts, these countries came under the control of the U.S.
government, World Bank, and other U.S.-dominated aid agencies that acted like
loan sharks, dictating repayment terms and bullying foreign governments into
submission.

This extraordinary true story exposes international intrigue, corruption, and
little-known government and corporate activities that have dire consequences
for American democracy and the world.

John Perkins worked from 1971 to 1981 for the international consulting firm of Chas. T. Main, where he held the titles of chief economist and manager of economics and regional planning but, in reality, was an economic hit man (EHM). He kept his EHM role secret until the events of September 11, 2001, convinced him to expose that side of his life.
