A Game as Old as Empire
The Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global CorruptionBook - 2007
John Perkins' controversial expose', Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, became an international word-of-mouth sensation, a long-running New York Times bestseller, sold over 20000 copies in Australia and NZ. But Perkins' revelations in Confessions were only the tip of the iceberg of the world of economic hit men. This secret world is even bigger, deeper, and darker than Confessions revealed. A Game As Old As Empire exposes many more shocking secrets of a worldwide web of control, corruption, and plunder. It tells how multinational corporations, governments, powerful individuals, banks, other financial institutions, and quasi- governmental agencies operate to enrich small elites and corporate coffers while often impoverishing masses of people and creating debt and dependency that economically enslave countries for generations. This new book provides the first full inside look at how this dark and dirty world functions.
