Re: VIDEO: EXCELLENT SPEECH OF JOHN PERKINS, ECONOMIC HIT MAN
To remove some of the usual confusion from a Sec post, I thought I would paste some pertinent facts on John Perkins.
I wonder who the beautiful older woman was. And exactly how old. :lol:
[quote]John Perkins (b. 1945 in Hanover, New Hampshire) is an activist and author. His best known and most recent book is Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, which purports to be an insider's account of exploitation or neo-colonialization of Third World countries by a cabal of corporations, banks, and the United States government. It was on the New York Times bestseller lists for over 40 weeks (in both hardcover and paperback).
Perkins attended Tilton Boys School for high school and Middlebury College during the 1960s. He spent the 1970s working for the consulting firm Chas. T. Main, where he claims he was employed after being independently screened by the National Security Agency (NSA) and subsequently hired by Einar Greve, a member of the firm (and alleged NSA liaison, a claim which Greve has denied) to become a self-described "Economic Hit Man". He claims to have been trained early in his career by a beautiful, manipulative, older woman as one of many "economic hit men" advancing the cause of corporate hegemony.
As a former chief economist at Boston strategic-consulting firm Chas. T. Main, Perkins says that he "was an 'economic hit man' for 10 years, helping U.S. intelligence agencies and multinational corporations cajole and blackmail foreign leaders into serving U.S. foreign policy and awarding lucrative contracts to American business.
