John Perkins is our guest this episode where we talk about the early days of his career as a “economic” hitman to some of the work he is doing now. We discuss the reasons for the involvement of the U.S. in the global arena and how that has changed. Oil is the common denominator of the discussion.
Earnings season is kicking in and there are a slew of companies that will be reporting this week. A dozen or so of these will give us a good read-through on the state of the global economy.
John Perkins is the author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, a startling expose of international corruption that spent over a year on the New York Times bestseller lists and has been published in more than thirty languages.
A former economic hit man, he is a founder and board member of Dream Change (www.dreamchange.org) and the Pachamama Alliance, nonprofit organizations devoted to creating a stable, sustainable, and peaceful world. He has lectured and taught at universities on four continents including Harvard, Wharton, and Princeton, and is a champion of environmental and social causes.
