Commonwealth Club Office, 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco
Directly outside of the Montgomery BART station.
Perkins, a U.S. political insider and the author of the New York Times best-seller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, uncovers the American empire in his new book The Secret History of the American Empire. From the economic "hit men" of governments to global corporations, Perkins tells the story of an empire built through economics rather than military force, with effects no less brutal. He zeroes in on hot spots around the world and recalls the history of events that have contributed to the creation of American power and what he sees as the international corruption of today. Join John Perkins in conversation with INFORUM, as he unearths this history and discusses his plan for making a sustainable, stable, and peaceful world.
