Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins

John Perkins’ Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is about his life as, quite obviously, an economic hit man; which he describes as a person commissioned to do the dirty work of the United States corporatocracy. For ten years of his life, his job was to bring countries rich in natural resources, specifically oil, into control of US interests using sinister schemes that brought them into massive debt to powerful US owned corporations, and the US government itself. This was the beginning of a new and subtle form of imperialism according to Perkins; a new tool to expand control of the US empire to sovereign nations around the world.
