Speaking Freely: John Perkins – 4 parts

Uploaded by dehypnotizeminds on Feb 14, 2011

For many years John Perkins was an “economic hit man” in the world of international finance; a function he performed by persuading Third World countries to take on large -scale public works projects. Today, we recognize that these types of projects, financed by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), have served to enrich U.S. corporations while creating crippling debt for these countries, effectively turning them into American client states. Experiencing a change of heart, Perkins resigned from the business in 1981. After running a utility company, he founded the nonprofit organization, Dream Change Coalition, which works closely with Amazonian and other indigenous people to help preserve their environments and cultures. Take the time for a conversation with Perkins about globalization and inequality around the world.

Apologies Of An Economic Hitman the movie by John Perkins

John Perkins was a prominent member of the top-secret team of “economic hit men”, who used fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, military coups and murder to create the global American empire after World War II. After a long internal struggle between his guilt and the fear of telling the truth, Perkins meets the daughter of an assassinated president and speaks out in front of an angry Latin-American audience.

Based on rare propagandistic material, film-noir style reconstructed sequences and exclusive filmed confessions of best selling author John Perkins (“Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”, “The Secret History of the American Empire”) this fascinating documentary sheds light on the unknown mechanisms used by the rulers of the modern world, the roots of Islamic terrorism, and the reason why most of the world’s population lives in poverty.

The definitive answer to President Bush’s question “why do they hate us?”..

Why the US Economy Needs Bees

Published on Nov 19, 2012 by linktv

Pollination is key to the US economy, but US bee keepers say that colony collapse disorder — massive bee death — is claiming up to 80 percent of us bee colonies each year. Pesticide Action Network’s Paul Towers states that “we rely on pollinators for one in every three bits of food that we eat.” Towers talks with Earth Focus about why US agriculture and economy are at stake.
