Ecuadors capital and sipped a margarita I became infatuated with this man and the life he lived He told us that sometimes he flew in a corporate jet directly from Houston to an airstrip hacked out of the jungle We dont have to endure immigration or customs he bragged The Ecuadorian government gives us special permission His rain forest experience included air conditioned trailers and champagne and filet mignon dinners served on fine china Not uite what youll be getting I assume he said with a laugh He then talked about the report he was writing that described a vast sea of oil beneath the jungle This report he said would be used to justify huge World Bank loans to the country and to persuade Wall Street to invest in Texaco and other businesses that would benefit from the oil boom When I expressed amazement that progress could happen so rapidly he gave me an odd look What did they teach you in business school anyway he asked I didnt know how to respond Look he said Its an old game Ive seen it in Asia the Middle East and Africa Now here Seismology reports combined with one good oil well a gusher like the one we just hitHe smiled Boomtown Ann mentioned all the excitement around how oil would bring prosperity to Ecuadorians Only those smart enough to play the game he said Id grown up in a New Hampshire town named after a man whod built a mansion on a hill overlooking everyone else using the fortune hed amassed by selling shovels and blankets to the California gold miners in The merchants I said The businessmen and bankers You bet And today the big corporations He tilted back in his chair We own this country We get a lotthan permission to land planes without customs formalities Like what Oh my God you do have a lot to learn dont you He raised his martini toward the city To begin with we control the military We pay their salaries and buy them their euipment They protect us from the Indians who dont want oil rigs on their lands In Latin America he who controls the army controls the president and the courts We get to write the laws set fines for oil spills labor rates all the laws that matter to us Texaco pays for all that Ann asked Well not exactlyHe reached across the table and patted her arm You do Or your daddy does The American taxpayer The money flows through USAID the World Bank CIA and the Pentagon but everyone here he swept his arm toward the window and the city below knows its all about Texaco Remember countries like this have long histories of coups If you take a good look youll see that most of them happen when the leaders of the country dont play our game Are you saying Texaco overthrows governments I asked He laughed Lets just say that governments that dont cooperate are seen as Soviet puppets They threaten American interests and democracy The CIA doesnt like that That night was the beginning of my education in what Ive come to think of as the EHM system Ann and I spent the next months stationed in therain forest Then we were transferred to the high Andes where I was assigned to help a group of campesino brick makers Ann trained handicapped people for jobs in local businesses I was told that the brick makers needed to improve the efficiency of the archaic ovens in which their bricks were baked However one after another they came to me complaining about the men who owned the trucks and the warehouses down in the city Ecuador was a country with little social mobility A few wealthy families the ricos ran just about everything including local businesses and politics Their agents bought the bricks from the brick makers at extremely low prices and sold them at roughly ten times that amount One brick maker went to the city mayor and complained Several days later he was struck by a truck and killed Terror swept the community People assured me that hed been murdered My suspicions that it was true were reinforced when the police chief announced that the dead man was part of a Cuban plot to turn Ecuador Communist Che Guevara had been executed by a CIA operation in Bolivia less than three years earlier He insinuated that any brick maker who caused trouble would be arrested as an insurgent The brick makers begged me to go to the ricos and set things right They were willing to do anything to appease those they feared including convincing themselves that if they gave in the ricos would protect them I didnt know what to do I had no leverage with the mayor and figured that the intervention of a twenty five year old foreigner would only make matters worse I merely listened and sympathized Eventually I realized that the ricos were part of a strategy a system that had subjugated Andean peoples through fear since the Spanish conuest I saw that by commiserating I was enabling the community to do nothing They needed to learn to face their fears they needed to admit to the anger they had suppressed they needed to take offense at the injustices they had suffered they needed to stop looking to me to set things right They needed to stand up to the ricos Late one afternoon I spoke to the community I told them that they had to take action They had to do whatever it would take including taking the risk of being killed so that their children could prosper and live in peace My realization about enabling that community was a great lesson for me I understood that the people themselves were collaborators in this conspiracy and that convincing them to take action offered the only solution And it worked The brick makers formed a co op Each family donated bricks and the co op used the income from those bricks to rent a truck and warehouse in the city The ricos boycotted the co op until a Lutheran mission from Norway contracted with the co op for all the bricks for a school it was building at about five times the amount the ricos had paid the brick makers but half the price the ricos were charging the Lutherans a win win situation for everyone except the ricos The co op flourished after that Less than a year later Ann and I completed our Peace Corps assignment I was twenty six and no longer subject to the draft I became an EHM When I first entered those ranks I convinced myself that I was doing the right thing South Vietnam had fallen to the Communist north and now the world was threatened by the Soviet Union and China My business school professors had taught that financing infrastructure projects through mountains of World Bank debt would pull economically developing nations out of poverty and save them from the clutches of communism Experts at the World Bank and USAID reinforced this mind set By the time I discovered the falsehoods in that story I felt trapped by the system I had grown up feeling poor in my New Hampshire boarding school but suddenly I was making a great deal of money traveling first class to countries Id dreamed about all my life staying in the best hotels eating in the finest restaurants and meeting with heads of state I had it made How could I even consider getting out Then the nightmares began I woke in dark hotel rooms sweating haunted by images of sights I had actually seen legless lepers strapped into wooden boxes on wheels rolling along the streets of Jakarta men and women bathing in slime green canals while next to them others defecated a human cadaver abandoned on a garbage heap swarming with maggots and flies and children who slept in cardboard boxes vying with roaming packs of dogs for scraps of rubbish I realized that Id distanced myself emotionally from these things Like other Americans Id seen these people as less than human they were beggars misfits them One day my Indonesian government limo stopped at a traffic light A leper thrust the gory remnants of a hand through my window My driver yelled at him The leper grinned a lopsided toothless smile and withdrew We drove on but his spirit remained with me It was as though he had sought me out his bloody stump was a warning his smile a message Reform he seemed to say Repent I began to lookclosely at the world around me And at myself I came to understand that although I had all the trappings of success I was miserable Id been popping Valium every night and drinking lots of alcohol Id get up in the morning force coffee and pep pills into my system and stagger off to negotiate contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars That life had come to seem normal to me I had bought into the stories I was taking on debt to support my lifestyle I was operating out of fear the fear of communism losing my job failure and not having the material things everyone told me I needed One night I woke up with the memory of a different type of dream I had walked into the office of a leader in a country that had just discovered it had lots of oil Our construction companies I told him will rent euipment from your brothers John Deere franchise Well pay twice the going rate your broth.

The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

Er can share his profits with you In the dream I went on to explain that wed make similar deals with friends of his who owned Coca Cola bottling plants other food and beverage suppliers and labor contractors All he had to do was sign off on a World Bank loan that would hire US corporations to build infrastructure projects in his country Then I casually mentioned that a refusal would bring in the jackals Remember I said what happened toI rattled off a list of names like Mossedegh of Iran Arbenz of Guatemala Allende of Chile Lumumba of the Congo Diem of Vietnam All of them I said were overthrown orI ran a finger across my throat because they didnt play our game I lay there in bed once again in a cold sweat realizing that this dream described my reality I had done all that It had been easy for me to provide government officials like the one in my dream with impressive materials that they could use to justify the loans to their people My staff of economists financial experts statisticians and mathematicians was skilled at developing sophisticated econometric models that proved that such investments in electric power systems highways ports airports and industrial parks would spur economic growth For years I also had relied on those models to convince myself that my actions were beneficial I had justified my job by the fact that gross domestic product did increase after the infrastructure was built Now I came to face the facts of the story behind the mathematics The statistics were highly biased they were skewed to the fortunes of the families that owned the industries banks shopping malls supermarkets hotels and a variety of other businesses that prospered from the infrastructure we built They prospered Everyone else suffered Money that had been budgeted for health care education and other social services was diverted to pay interest on the loans In the end the principal was never paid down the country was shackled by debt Then International Monetary Fund IMF hit men arrived and demanded that the government offer its oil or other resources to our corporations at cut rate prices and that the country privatize its electric water sewer and other public sector institutions and sell them to the corporatocracy Big business was the big winner In every case a key condition of such loans was that the projects would be built by our engineering and construction companies Most of the money never left the United States it simply was transferred from banking offices in Washington to engineering offices in New York Houston or San Francisco We EHMs also made sure that the recipient country agreed to buy airplanes medicines tractors computer technologies and other goods and services from our corporations Despite the fact that the money was returned almost immediately to the corporate members of the corporatocracy the recipient country the debtor was reuired to pay it all back principal plus interest If an EHM was completely successful the loans were so large that the debtor was forced to default on its payments after a few years When this happened we EHMs like the Mafia demanded our pound of flesh This often included one orof the following control over United Nations votes the installation of military bases or access to precious resources such as oil Of course the debtor still owed us the money and another country was added to our global empire Those nightmares helped me see that my life was not the life I wanted I began to realize that like the Andean brick makers I had to take responsibility for my life for what I was doing to myself and to those people and their countries But before I could grasp the deeper significance of this understanding that had begun to stir within me I had to answer a crucial uestion How did a nice kid from rural New Hampshire ever get into such a dirty businessWhen I read Confessions of an Economic Hit Man I could not have known that some years later I would be on the receiving end of the type of economic hit that Perkins so vividly narrated The New Confessions resonates with my experiences of the brutish methods and gross economic irrationality guiding powerful institutions in their bid to undermine democratic control over economic power Perkins has once again made a substantial contribution to a world that needs whistle blowers to open its eyes to the true sources of political social and economic power Yanis Varoufakis former Minister of Finance GreeceThe New Confessions offers deep insights into the nefarious ways economic hit men and jackals have expanded their powers It shows how they came home to roost in the United Statesas well as the rest of the world It is a brilliant and bold book that illuminates the crises we now face and offers a road map to stop

Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy Conspiracy buffs are most likely to enjoy this updated version of a memoir that was a surprise bestseller in This revised version he states was written to answer the thousands of emails he received from readers interested in what they could do to resist Publishers Weekly February Mr Perkinss core message is that American corporations and government agencies employ two types of operatives economic hit men who bribe emerging economies andjackals who may be used to overthrow or even murder heads of state in Latin America and the Middle East to serve the greater cause of American empire This book seems to have tapped into a larger vein of discontent and mistrust that Americans feel toward the ties that bind together corporations large lending institutions and the government a nexus that Mr Perkins and others call thecorporatocracy The New York TimesThis riveting look at a world of intrigue reads like a spy novelHighly recommended Library Journal Ultimately

INTRODUCTION The New Confessions Im haunted every day by what I did as an economic hit man EHM Im haunted by the lies I told back then about the World Bank Im haunted by the ways in which that bank its sister organizations and I empowered US corporations to spread their cancerous tentacles across the planet Im haunted by the payoffs to the leaders of poor countries the blackmail and the threats that if they resisted if they refused to accept loans that would enslave their countries in debt the CIAs jackals would overthrow or assassinate them I wake up sometimes to the horrifying images of heads of state friends of mine who died violent deaths because they refused to betray their people Like Shakespeares Lady Macbeth I try to scrub the blood from my hands But the blood is merely a symptom The treacherous cancer beneath the surface which was revealed in the original Confessions of an Economic Hit Man has metasta sized It has spread from the economically developing countries to the United States and the rest of the world it attacks the very foundations of democracy and the planets life support systems All the EHM and jackal tools false economics false promises threats bribes extortion debt deception coups assassinations unbridled military power are used around the world today eventhan during the era I exposedthan a decade ago Although this cancer has spread widely and deeply most people still arent aware of it yet all of us are impacted by the collapse it has caused It has become the dominant system of economics government and society today Fear and debt drive this system We are hammered with messages that terrify us into believing that we must pay any price assume any debt to stop the enemies who we are told lurk at our doorsteps The problem comes from somewhere else Insurgents Terrorists Them And its solution reuires spending massive amounts of money on goods and services produced by what I call the corporatocracy vast networks of corporations banks colluding governments and the rich and powerful people tied to them We go deeply into debt our country and its financial henchmen at the World Bank and its sister institutions coerce other countries to go deeply into debt debt enslaves us and it enslaves those countries These strategies have created a death economy one based on wars or the threat of war debt and the rape of the earths resources It is an unsustainable economy that depletes at ever increasing rates the very resources upon which it depends and at the same time poisons the air we breathe the water we drink and the foods we eat Although the death economy is built on a form of capitalism it is important to note that the word capitalism refers to an economic and political system in which trade and industry are controlled by private owners rather than the state It includes local farmers markets as well as this very dangerous form of global corporate capitalism controlled by the corporatocracy which is predatory by nature has created a death economy and ultimately is self destructive I decided to write The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man because things have changed so much during this past decade The cancer has spread throughout the United States as well as the rest of the world The rich have gotten richer and everyone else has gotten poorer in real terms A powerful propaganda machine owned or controlled by the corporatocracy has spun its stories to convince us to accept a dogma that serves its interests not ours These stories contrive to convince us that we must embrace a system based on fear and debt accumulating stuff and dividing and conuering everyone who isnt us The stories have sold us the lie that the EHM system will provide security and make us happy Some would blame our current problems on an organized global conspiracy I wish it were so simple Although as I point out later there are hundreds of conspiracies not just one grand conspiracy that affect all of us this EHM system is fueled by something fardangerous than a global conspiracy It is driven by concepts that have become accepted as gospel We believe that all economic growth benefits humankind and that the greater the growth thewidespread the benefits Similarly we believe that those people who excel at stoking the fires of economic growth should be exalted and rewarded while those born at the fringes are available for exploitation And we believe that any means including those used by todays EHMs and jackals are justified to promote economic growth preserve our comfortable affluent Western way of life and wage war against anyone such as Islamic terrorists who might threaten our economic well being comfort and security In response to readers reuests I have added many new details and accounts of how we did our work during my time as an EHM and I have clarified some points in the previously published chapters More importantly I have added an entirely new part which explains how the EHM game is played today who todays economic hit men are who todays jackals are and how their deceptions and tools arefar reaching and enslaving now than ever Also in response to readers reuests part includes new chapters that reveal what it will take to overthrow the EHM system and specific tactics for doing so The book ends with a section titled Documentation of EHM Activity which complements my personal story by offering detailed information for readers who want further proof of the issues covered in this book or who want to pursue these subjects indepth Despite all the bad news and the attempts of modern day robber barons to steal our democracy and our planet I am filled with hope I know that when enough of us perceive the true workings of this EHM system we will take the individual and collective actions necessary to control the cancer and restore our health The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man reveals how the system works today and what you and I all of us can do to change it Tom Paine inspired American revolutionaries when he wrote If there must be trouble let it be in my day that my child may have peace Those words are as important today as they were in My goal in this new book is nothing less than Paines to inspire and empower us all to do whatever it takes to lead the way to peace for our childrenAPTER Dirty Business When I graduated from business school in I was determined not to participate in the Vietnam War I had recently married Ann She too opposed the war and was adventurous enough to agree to join the Peace Corps with me We first arrived in uito Ecuador in I was a twenty three year old volunteer assigned to develop credit and savings cooperatives in communities deep in therain forest Anns job was to teach hygiene and child care to indigenous women Ann had been to Europe but it was my first trip away from North America I knew wed fly into uito one of the highest capitals in the world and one of the poorest I expected it to be different from anything Id ever seen but I was totally unprepared for the reality As our plane from Miami descended toward the airport I was shocked by the hovels along the runway I leaned across Ann in the middle seat and pointing through my window asked the Ecuadorian businessman in the aisle seat next to her Do people actually live there We are a poor country he replied nodding solemnly The scenes that greeted us on the bus ride into town were even worse tattered beggars hobbling on homemade crutches along garbage infested streets children with horribly distended bellies skeletal dogs and shantytowns of cardboard boxes that passed as homes The bus delivered us to uitos five star hotel the InterContinental It was an island of luxury in that sea of poverty and the place where I and about thirty other Peace Corps volunteers would attend several days of in country briefings During the first of many lectures we were informed that Ecuador was a combination of feudal Europe and the American Wild West Our teachers prepped us about all the dangers venomous snakes malaria anacondas killer parasites and hostile head hunting warriors Then the good news Texaco had discovered vast oil deposits not far from where wed be stationed in the rain forest We were assured that oil would transform Ecuador from one of the poorest countries in the hemisphere to one of the richest One afternoon while waiting for a hotel elevator I struck up a conversation with a tall blond man who had a Texas drawl He was a seismologist a Texaco consultant When he learned that Ann and I were poor Peace Corps volunteers whod be working in the rain forest he invited us to dinner in the elegant restaurant on the top floor of the hotel I couldnt believe my good fortune Id seen the menu and knew that our meal would costthan our monthly living allowance That night as I looked through the restaurants windows out at Pichincha the mammoth volcano that hovers over.
