  1. Det här ska man lära barnen om i skolorna
    Roko Stanicic, 17 mars 2015

    Skriven som en deckare, men ju mer man läser, desto mer realistisk den känns. Detta har nyligen hänt i mitt hemland Kroatien, när landet lånade pengar för att bygga nästan 500km av motorväg. Motorvägen t.o.m. byggdes av ett företag som nämns i boken.

"[UNK] 'Perkins has ripped open the belly of the financial buccaneers from his unique place on the inside. Here are the real-life details - nasty, manipulative, plain evil - of international corporate skullduggery spun into a tale rivaling the darkest espionage thriller.' - Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy"

Övrig information

John Perkins was covertly recruited to be an economic hit man (EHM) by the US National Security Agency during his last year at Boston University's School of Business Administration, in the late 1960s. As Chief Economist for the international consulting firm Chas. T. Main from 1971 to 1981, he convinced underdeveloped countries to accept massive loans for infrastructure development and ensured that the projects were contracted to multinational corporations. The countries acquired enormous debt, and the US and international aid agencies were able to control their economies. Following his EHM work, Perkins founded Independent Power Systems, an alternative energy provider that successfully changed the US utility industry. He is now president of Dream Change Coalition, a nonprofit organization working with Amazonian and other indigenous people to help preserve their environments and cultures. 'As I travel around the world, I find that people know that their country just received a billion-dollar loan, for example, from the World Bank and that American corporations are there benefiting from the loan, but that their own lives are getting worse,' he says.
