What Are Economic Hitmen?

Posted by libhom Friday, July 16, 2010

One of the most influential books critiquing US foreign policy and globalization is Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins. Hard Boiled Dreams of the World ran this animation from Perkins which briefly explains Perkins' views.



The book is definitely worth the time to read.

  2. I read an excerpt from this book a couple of years ago. It looks like the US is the next target of these people.

  4. Lib, what a great find! Thanks.

    Lew, perhaps the US is the present target.

  6. I would say that we have been the target at least since the 70s. I think there are important bits of stitching together between this book and The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein.
