Plot Outline: For many years John Perkins was an "economic hit man" in the world of international finance; a function he performed by persuading Third World countries to take on large -scale public works projects. Today, we recognize that these types of projects, financed by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), have served to enrich U.S. corporations while creating crippling debt for these countries, effectively turning them into American client states.
Review: This short presentation is a good introduction to Mr. Perkins excellent books. For a superb, engrossing similar view on DVD, try "Life and Debt", which is about how globalization destroyed the people and businesses of Jamaica. It feels good to know about the rotten things that our country has done.
