Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

Presentation by John Perkins
“When you look at the world we humans have created, you may conclude that it was created by sleeping people, because awake, aware, conscious people would manifest a very different world. We have entered one of the most important periods in human history…We have the opportunity to lift ourselves to new levels of consciousness.”

John Perkins is the author of ‘Confessions of an Economic Hit Man’, which is published in more than 30 languages and has been on the New York Times best seller list over 70 weeks.

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, a page turner about the ruthlessness with which the United States uses economic manipulation and political coercion to extend our power and control over other nations.


Here a presentation in three part from August 2006 ‘The Veterans For Peace National Convention, Seattle, WA’. John discusses, from a hit man’s perspective, the reasons and background to why we are at war in the Middle East.

There are many interviews and presentations besides this one. The interview – ‘What Really Goes on Behind Global Affairs’ from Feb 17, 2008 provides more detailed account of his experiences.
