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
