As an Economic Hitman (EHM), John Perkins helped further American
imperial interests in countries such as Ecuador, Panama, Indonesia and
Saudi Arabia. As Chief Economist for the international consulting firm
Chas. T. Main, he convinced underdeveloped countries to accept
massive loans for infrastructure development and ensured that the
projects were contracted to multinational corporations. The countries
acquired enormous debt, and the US and international aid agencies were
able to control their economies. He tried to write this book four
times but was threatened or bribed each time to halt.
The events of 9/11 - a direct result of the activities of EHMs in the 1970s - finally forced him to confront the role he played himself, and to reveal the truth to the rest of the world. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man has become a word-of-mouth bestseller in the US. It has been called the book that finally 'connects the dots, the book that best explains what is really going on in the world'.
