Do you ever wonder why the world is so screwed up or why some nations are so impoverished that its people barely have access to clean water? John Perkins reveals all in his pseudo-autobiography "Confessions of an Economic Hitman". His tale seems so incredulous that you almost forget that you're reading a nonfiction piece. He tries to rationalize his misguided life decisions, which helped crippled many international economies, with the events that occurred during his youth. As you read, you'll get a sense that he’s conflicted with guilt. He candidly admits that this book is his very long confession which he felt compelled to publish shortly after the tragic events on 9/11. However, his emotional pangs of guilt aside, your eyes will open to some of the most duplicitous tactics from our government for 20th century world domination.
