A Game As Old As Empire exposes many more shocking secrets of a worldwide web of control, corruption,and plunder. It tells how multinational corporations, governments, powerful individuals, banks, other financialinstitutions, and quasi-governmental agencies operate to enrich small elite and corporate coffers while oftenimpoverishing masses of people and creating debt and dependency that economically enslave countries forgenerations. This new book provides the first full inside look at how this dark and dirty world functions. Itshows that the economic hit man game and the web of global corruption are far more widespread, pervasive,and destructive than Perkins described in Confessions. And it reveals the deep and dark connections betweenthis economic hit man game and the domination of global empire.Each chapter focuses on a particular case, detailing the methods used to deceive, steal, corrupt, and enforcecompliance. These methods range from the clearly sinister (such as bribery, fraud, looting, money laundering,threats, and even the use of jackals and other means of violence) to the seemingly altruistic (such as manytypes of debt relief, development assistance, and foreign aid) that in fact are highly exploitative and onerous.
