John Perkins: The New Confessions Of An Economic Hitman. How We Can Turn A Death Economy Into A Life Economy

From Economic Hit Man (EHM), to CEO of an alternative energy company, to a student and then teacher of indigenous cultures and shamanism, to author of the book that exposed the world of international intrigue and corruption he saw as an EHM, John Perkins has experienced many different sides of life.


As an EHM, John’s job was to convince Third World countries to accept enormous, larger than necessary loans for infrastructure development and to guarantee that the development projects were contracted to U.S. corporations—such as Halliburton and Bechtel. Once the countries were saddled with huge debts, the U.S. government was able to control the economies of those countries and ensure that their resources, such as oil, were channeled through the United States.


During the 1990s and into the new millennium, John remained silent about his activities as an EHM and continued to receive lucrative corporate consulting fees in return.


Then came September 11, 2001. 


The events of that day convinced John to ignore the threats and bribes, and write Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. He believed he had a responsibility to share his knowledge about the role the U.S. government, multinational “aid” organizations, and corporations have played in bringing the world to a place where such an event could occur. 


John wanted to expose the fact that Economic Hit Men are more ubiquitous today than ever before. He felt he owed this to his country, his daughter, and to all the people around the world who suffer because of the work he and his peers have done. In Confessions of an Economic Hit Man John describes the dangerous path the United States is taking as it moves away from the original ideals of the American republic and into a quest for global empire.


Through his study of shamanism, shapeshifting, and prophesy John has come to believe now is a time of opportunity for great change. It is time to transform from the social and economic models of greed and destruction into a just, sustainable world for all beings.


Author of the new release "The New Confessions of an Economic Hitman" now available on Amazon and all major retailers.
