Well John Perkins is back with The New Confessions of an Economic Hitman, which features 15 explosive new chapters in the classic New York Times million-copy bestseller. This new and expanded edition brings the story of economic hit men up-to-date and, chillingly, home to the U.S.
Who are today’s economic hit men? Their ranks have escalated since Perkins first exposed them twelve years ago. Join us for an evening with John Perkins: he’ll give us the hope and the tools to fight back. He will share new details about the ways he and others cheated countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars and reveal how the deadly EHM cancer he helped create has spread far more widely and deeply than ever in the U.S. and everywhere else. So much so it has become the dominant system of business, government, and society today. He’ll give us an insider view of what each of us can do to change it, and you’ll be able to ask the questions that you’ve been pondering since reading the original Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
John Perkins advises corporations, executives, and entrepreneurs on ways to make the transition from a Death Economy to a Life Economy. A former Chief Economist at an international consulting firm and CEO of a successful alternative energy company, John is a founder of Dream Change and The Pachamama Alliance, nonprofit organizations that partner with indigenous people to protect environments.
