Summary, etc.:
Who Are Today's Economic Hit Men? Featuring fifteen explosive new chapters, this expanded edition of a classic New York Times million-copy bestseller brings the story of economic hit men up to date and, chillingly, home to the United States. It also gives us hope and the tools to fight back. In this astonishing tell-all book, former economic hit man (EHM) John Perkins shares new details about the ways he and others cheated countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Then he reveals how the deadly EHM cancer he helped create has spread far more widely and deeply than ever in the United States and everywhere else-to become the dominant system of business, government, and society today. Finally, he gives an insider view of what we each can do to change it.
