The Evil Empire Has The World In A Death Grip - by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Jeff Fitchett: This is an important article to read.  Dr. Roberts gives an excellent overview of John Perkins' book; 'The New Confessions of an Economic Hitman'.  I think everyone should be aware of how powerful interest groups use tactics to control and dismantle sovereign nations, states and cities.   (The book can be found under my resources page)

Paul Craig Roberts
"In my archives there is a column or two that introduces the reader to John Perkins’ important book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. An EHM is an operative who sells the leadership of a developing country on an economic plan or massive development project. The Hit Man convinces a country’s government that borrowing large sums of money from US financial institutions in order to finance the project will raise the country’s living standards. The borrower is assured that the project will increase Gross Domestic Product and tax revenues and that these increases will allow the loan to be repaid."
