The current crisis is a classic hit by economic hit men (EHM) - except this time the victims are us. Drawing on personal experiences described in his blockbuster books, John Perkins explains how tools honed during the past four decades in developing countries are enabling the extremely rich to purchase businesses and real estate at fire sale prices; defend abolition of health care, education, and other social programs; and justify privatization of the public sector. However, crises offer opportunities. Perkins presents a plan for transforming the economy and describes ways each of us can employ our individual passions and skills to not only prosper but also create a world we will be proud to pass on to future generations.

John Perkins is the bestselling author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, The Secret History of the American Empire, and most recently Hoodwinked: An Economic Hit Man Reveals Why the World Financial Markets Imploded--and What We Need to Do to Remake Them.
