Alex Jones interviews John Perkins, economist and author of ‘Confessions of a Economic Hitman’ and ‘The Secret History of the American Empire’.
What is an economic hitman, you ask?
My official title was chief economist at a major consulting firm in Boston, MA; this is back in the ’70’s. I was really an economic hitman. I arranged huge loans for countries that had resources corporations coveted to places like the World Bank and the private banking industry. Money never actually went to those countries because it went instead to our own corporations to build big infrastructure projects in those countries like power plants and industrial parks that benefited a few wealthy people in those countries, as well as our own corporations, but didn’t help the majority of the people too poor to buy electricity, couldn’t get jobs in industrial parks because they don’t hire many people, and yet they, the people of the country, were left holding a huge debt they couldn’t repay. So we go back at some point and say, “hey, since you can’t pay your debts, sell your oil to our oil companies real cheap or your mineral resources, whatever, open your markets to us. Let us build a military base on your soil. Vote with us on the next critical United Nations vote.” – John Perkins
Listen to the rest of the interview to hear about the few leaders that did not go along with the money masters and the jackals sent to take care of them, how the global economy is going to shake out, and the endgame of a global empire with the military being used to back the corporations’ moves.

New York Times Bestselling Author
As Chief Economist at a major international consulting firm, John Perkins advised the World Bank, United Nations, IMF, U.S. Treasury Department, Fortune 500 corporations, and countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. He worked directly with heads of state and CEOs of major companies. His books on economics and geo-politics have sold more than 1 million copies, spent many months on the New York Times and other bestseller lists, and are published in over 30 languages.
John’s Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (70 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list) is a startling exposé of international corruption. His The Secret History of the American Empire, also a New York Times bestseller, details the clandestine operations that created the world’s first truly global empire. His Hoodwinked is a blueprint for a new form of global economics.
And here is your bonus video from a BBC interview today with independent trader, Alessio Rastani stating that governments don’t rule the world, Goldman Sachs does.
Governments don’t rule the World – Goldman Sachs does!
From Rolling Stone, 4.5.2010:
From tech stocks to high gas prices, Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression — and they’re about to do it again
The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it’s everywhere. The world’s most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, which doubles as a history of the rapid decline and fall of the suddenly swindled dry American empire, reads like a Who’s Who of Goldman Sachs graduates.
