Default A Game As Old As Empire


In 2004, John Perkins’ Confessions of an Economic Hit Man created waves, spoke the unspeakable and became a New York Times bestseller. In it Perkins came clean about how he’d helped US intelligence agencies and multinationals exploit the economies of Third World nations. A Game As Old As Empire—for which he wrote the introduction—is the follow-up, and this time a wide variety of in-the-know authors corroborate and expand upon Perkins’ story. And it’s frightening stuff.

In plain language—and providing sufficient historical background—we are shown how First World countries have used “economic hit men,” institutions like the World Bank and IMF, coercion and even outright strong-arm tactics to steal from the developing countries—often in collusion with the elites of those countries who are happy to hide their ill-gotten gain in offshore accounts
