Product description

Review

John Perkins has been in and out of the world of high finance and low ethics, and in Hoodwinked he not only illuminates that world with dramatic stories and keen insights, but suggests what we might do to create a better society.

--Howard Zinn, bestselling author of A People's History of the United States

Another thriller from the master storyteller with an insider view. Perkins takes us once again into the dark netherworld of corrupt bankers and economic hit men who lure the unsuspecting into financial ruin and reveals the connection between the folks who for decades enriched themselves at the expense of the world's poor and those who now reap billions at the expense of America. Same people, same scams.

--David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy and The Great Turning, and board chair of YES! magazine

John Perkins' engaging narrative draws us into a brilliant analysis of capitalism's shadow side, and points us to a hopeful path to a better future. Hoodwinked is a must-read for anyone who cares about our economic welfare, social justice, and our collective well-being.

--DANIEL GOLEMAN, bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence and Ecological Intelligence

Acclaim for Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

Here are the real-life details--nasty, manipulative, plain evil--of international corporate skullduggery spun into a tale rivaling the darkest espionage thriller.
--Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

[A] gripping tell-all book.
--Rocky Mountain News

Astonishing.
--Boston Herald

A bombshell. One of those rare instances in which someone deeply entrenched in our governmental/corporate imperialist structure has come forward to reveal in unequivocal terms its inner workings. A work of great insight and moral courage.

--John E. Mack, Harvard professor and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Prince of Our Disorder: The Life of T. E. Lawrence

Stunning and groundbreaking. . . . A must-read for anyone who cares about the world.

--Lynne Twist, global activist and author of the bestselling The Soul of Money

With unflinching honesty, Perkins narrates his moral awakening and struggle to break free from the corrupt system of global domination he himself helped to create. This book . . . comes from the heart. I highly recommend it.

--Michael Brownstein, author of World on Fire

About the Author

John Perkins was covertly recruited to be an EHM by the US National Security Agency during his last year at Boston University's School of Business Administration, in the late 1960s. As Chief Economist for the international consulting firm Chas. T. Main from 1971 to 1981, he convinced underdeveloped countries to accept massive loans for infrastructure development and ensured that the projects were contracted to multinational corporations. The countries acquired enormous debt, and the US and international aid agencies were able to control their economies.Following his EHM work, Perkins founded Independent Power Systems, an alternative energy provider that successfully changed the US utility industry. He is now president of Dream Change Coalition, a nonprofit organization working with Amazonian and other indigenous people to help preserve their environments and cultures. 'As I travel around the world, I find that people know that their country just received a billion-dollar loan, for example, from the World Bank and that American corporations are there benefiting from the loan, but that their own lives are getting worse,' he says.
