For many years John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and Hoodwinked, was an economic hit man in the world of international finance, persuading Third World countries to take on large-scale public works projects. Today most of us recognize that such projects, often financed by the World Bank and IMF, have served to enrich US corporations while creating crippling debt for these host countries, effectively turning them into American client states.
Experiencing a change of heart, Perkins resigned in 1981 and has since spoken out about globalization and inequality around the world. Perkins combines the keen insights of someone who knows the system from the inside with the honesty of someone who passionately wants the world to understand.
Discover how these strategies are strikingly similar to events occurring in Greece, Italy, Ireland and many developing countries.
Discussion will be led by Sharat Lin, PhD of the San Jose Peace Center.
