An exposé of the ugly global battle for control of resources

If you’re hoping to have a ‘feel good’ day today, we’re about to owe you an apology.
John Perkins, author of The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, is someone we’ve been trying to get on the program for some time. He tells a dark story of an elite cabal working in the shadows to subjugate governments as it pursues ever-greater control of the planet’s resources.
What’s most frightening about this story is how credible it is. Anybody paying attention to world developments will have a hard time dismissing Perkins’ claims out-of-hand; and a harder time not being sickened at how on the mark his claims may likely prove to be:
Economic hitmen – I’m a former one, actually – created the world’s first truly global empire. It’s really a corporate empire, not an American empire although the U.S. government certainly supports it.
We work many different ways, but perhaps the most common is that we will identify a country that has resources that corporations want, like oil. We arrange huge loans of that country from the World Bank or one of its sisters. Yet, the money never actually goes to the country. It is primarily there to make the our companies — that build the infrastructure projects like the power plants, and the industrial parks, highways, and ports — very rich.
