Hoodwinked: Former Economic Hit Man John Perkins Reveals Why the World Financial Markets Imploded—and How to Remake Them

Had the pleasure of meeting and talking with John Perkins author of "An Economic Hit Man" at the Green Festival in Washington D.C. a while back. This guy was on the front lines for the "robber barons" back in the 80’s. He certainly seems to have seen the light!

Sure not hearing much about the McClatchy report about Goldman Sachs sacking of the Fed. Perkins brings up the robber barons on Wall Street

Hoodwinked-web

John Perkins calls himself a former economic hit man. He has seen the signs of today’s financial meltdown before. The subprime mortgage fiasco, the collapse of the banking industry, the rising unemployment rate—these are all familiar to him. Perkins was on the front lines of monitoring and helping create these very events that were once just confined to the Third World. From 1971 to 1981, he worked for the international consulting firm of Chas T. Main, where he was a self-described “economic hit man.” He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Confessions of An Economic Hit Man and The Secret History of the American Empire."
