      Comments about Confessions of an Economic Hit Man:

      Well written & at times spell bounding. Confessions of an economic hitman reveals a deep insight into the propaganda & corruption that helped the U.S.A become the most powerful country on earth.
      One thing the author is absolutely right about..

      The world of white man really does have a 3rd grade view on history. We just keep closing our eyes to everything.

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"
