CHALLENGE YOUR THINKING ABOUT THE CURRENT ECONOMIC CRISIS with John Perkins, New York Times Best Selling Author of CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HITMAN
THE HIT MEN STRIKE HOME
What Next and How to Deal With It
The current crisis is a classic hit by economic hit men (EHM) – except this time the victims are us. Drawing on personal experiences described in his New York Times bestselling book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins explains how tools honed during the past four decades in developing countries are enabling the extremely rich to purchase businesses and real estate at fire sale prices; defend abolition of health care, education, and other social programs; and justify privatization of the public sector. However, crises offer opportunities.
Perkins presents a plan for transforming the economy and describes ways each of us can employ our individual passions and skills to not only prosper but also create a world we will be proud to pass on to future generations.
John Perkins' tell-all memoir, CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN, which is translated in 30 languages, spent 7 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list in hardcover, and more than 12 weeks on the extended list. John has lectured and taught at universities and learning centers on four continents and is a regular lecturer for the Omega Center and at universities and corporations all over the country. John Perkins worked for the international consulting firm of Chas. T. Main from 1971 to 1981, where he held the titles of Chief Economist and Manager of Economics and Regional Planning but, in reality, was an economic hit man. John Perkins is founder and president of the Dream Change Coalition, which works closely with Amazonian and other indigenous people to help preserve their environments and cultures.
