Episode #458 (Originally aired 12/23/09) Citizen Radio interviews author, activist, and former Economic Hit Man, John Perkins, for the full hour!


As an EHM (Economic Hit Man), Perkins's job was to convince Third World countries to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development—loans that were much larger than needed—and to guarantee that the development projects were contracted to U.S. corporations like Halliburton and Bechtel.

Once these countries were saddled with huge debts, the U.S. government and the international aid agencies allied with it were able to control these economies and to ensure that oil and other resources were channeled to serve the interests of building a global empire.

Perkins is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and the new book, Hoodwinked: An Economic Hit Man Reveals Why the World Financial Markets Imploded--and What We Need to Do to Remake Them. 

Also check out Perkins' website (http://www.johnperkins.org/) and add him on Twitter (http://twitter.com/economic_hitman).

He joins Citizen Radio for the full hour to discuss his job as an EHM, US-led assassinations, his accurate predictions that Iceland's economy would collapse, the dangers of hyper-Capitalism and global Corporatism (including how America's domestic banks, the IMF, and The World Bank enslave people with debt,) and the EHMs' treatment of Iran, Bolivia, and Venezuela.

Perkins shares the success stories of people fighting corporate takeovers like the Bolivians' fight with Bechtel, the huge corporation that privatized Bolivia’s water supply, the lawsuit Ecuadorians have filed against Texaco, which has since been purchased by Chevron, and Latin and South America's social revolutions that reject predatory Capitalism.

Finally, Perkins explains why government regulation is important, how Obama's economic team are "scum," China's role in the new world, and what citizens can do to make Capitalism more egalitarian and humane.
