9788492801053: Confesiones de un gangster economico (Spanish Edition)

En este fascinante testimonio, John Perkins relata su particular trayectoria personal, de servidor obediente del Imperio a defensor apasionado de los derechos de los oprimidos. Discretamente seleccionado por la Agencia Nacional de Seguridad estadounidense y puesto en la nomina de una firma internacional de consultoria, estuvo en Indonesia, Panama, Ecuador, Colombia, Arabia Saudi, Iran y otros paises estrategicamente importantes del planeta. Su mision consistio en fomentar medidas politicas favorables a los intereses de lo que el autor llama la corporatocracia estadounidense (la alianza entre la administracion, la banca y las corporaciones). En apariencia se trataba de remediar la pobreza, pero en la practica esas politicas alienaban a los paises y acabaron conduciendo al 11-S y al aumento del odio contra los EE.UU. / ""Economic hit men,"" John Perkins writes,"" are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as Empire but one that has taken on terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization."" John Perkins should know-he was an economic hit man for an international consulting firm that worked to convince developing countries to accept enormous loans and to funnel that money to U.S. corporations. Once these countries were saddled with huge debts, the American government and international aid agencies were able to request their ""pound of flesh"" in favors, including access to natural resources, military cooperation, and political support. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is the story of one man's experiences inside the intrigue, greed, corruption and little-known government and corporate activities that America has been involved in since World War II, and which have dire consequences for the future of democracy and the world.
