TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW! Bestselling author of “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” John Perkins’ most recent book is "Hoodwinked: An Economic Hit Man Reveals Why the World Financial Markets Imploded- and What We Need to Do to Remake Them.” This book reveals how economic hit men helped to engineer the current economic crisis here in the U.S. Perkins' other books include: "The Secret History of the American Empire," "The World Is As You Dream It," "Shapeshifting- Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation."
The current crisis is a classic hit by economic hit men (EHM) – except this time the victims are us. Drawing on personal experiences, John Perkins explains how tools used in the past four decades in developing countries are enabling the extremely rich to purchase businesses and real estate at fire sale prices and exploit human and natural resources.
However, crises offer opportunities. By recognizing that the market place is a democratic voting booth, we the people have the power to demand new goals, ones focused on generating a sustainable, just, and peaceful world. 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.
