Thread: Confessions of an economic hitman

  1. #1

    Default Confessions of an economic hitman

    It's assigned reading for class this summer term. I read a chapter in it and I cannot believe what it's talking about. Taking over countries, overthrowing governments, assassinations. Here is a video that we had to watch as well. I would embed it but I don't know how to embed google video.

    John Perkins - Economic Hitman. Zeitgeist Addendum SPANISH SUBTITLES

    What do you all think of this? I am still trying to wrap my head around this stuff. Call me naive or whatever but I honestly had no clue anything like this was going on. At the end it talks about wal mart and otehr companies being more powerful than entire countries.

    Take some of the stuff from that video with a grain of salt. I'd suggest doing some fact checking. But for the mosy part, the concepts of which he talks about are very true and very powerful.
