Description (required)

From Publishers Weekly
Having made a splash with Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, Perkins
offers similarly entertaining but disturbing accounts of the American
government wreaking havoc around the world in support of American
business. In Perkinss view, American presidents willingly comply with
their CEO masters, distributing foreign aid to corrupt Third World
leaders who keep a share and return the rest to U.S. business for
major projects, leaving their nations poor and massively in debt, and
requiring more loans and slavish obedience to U.S. policy. If any
leader objects, the CIA destabilizes his government, by assassination
if necessary. Gathering evidence is not Perkinss strong suit.
Typically, a shadowy figure pulls him aside, insists on anonymity,
then reveals all. Critics will rightfully accuse Perkins of dreadful
journalism and a taste for conspiracy theories. Yet economists admit
that loans and "expert advice" to poor nations are often harmful. Few
deny that America has ruthlessly undermined uncooperative governments
and supported dictators including Saddam Hussein. Perkinss assertions
that the U.S. assassinated Ecuadors reformist president and connived
at genocide in Timor and Sudan are not absurd, merely unproven. This
books greatest value may be to encourage a competent journalist to
cover the same ground. (June 5)

From AudioFile
In this follow-up to CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN, John Perkins
continues his expos of corrupt governmental and business economic
policies and practices. He focuses primarily on the United States, but
he also has much to say about the World Bank and the International
Monetary Fund. The passion the author feels for his subject can be
heard in the introduction, which he reads himself. Jonathan Davis
projects the same intensity and sense of urgency in his precise and
crisp presentation of the rest of the text. What could be a plodding
and convoluted economic treatise is made compelling by the authors
insider knowledge and personal anecdotes, which are enhanced by Daviss
clear, fast-paced delivery. M.O.B. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine--
