Confessions of an Economic Hit Man: What really goes on behind Global Affairs

Very few people know anything about what really goes on behind the scene when it come to U.S. foreign policy and the corporate interests that drive it all. Our government is controlled by powerful corporate interests that have literally hijacked the powers of government and our military to advance their own selfish agendas. John Perkins was one of the men working behind the scenes to expand a global empire primarily through economic blackmail where they seduced third world leaders into taking out enormous loans from the World Bank that were impossible to repay so that U.S. corporations could swoop in and acquire control of their natural resources. John Perkins tells the whole story in a video interview which can be found here:
