Free Download PDF The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
Former economic hit man John Perkins shares new details about the ways he and others cheated countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Then he reveals how the deadly EHM cancer he helped create has spread far more widely and deeply than ever in the US and everywhere else—to become the dominant system of business, government, and society today. Finally, he gives an insider view of what we each can do to change it.
Economic hit men are the shock troops of what Perkins calls the corporatocracy, a vast network of corporations, banks, colluding governments, and the rich and powerful people tied to them. If the EHMs can’t maintain the corrupt status quo through nonviolent coercion, the jackal assassins swoop in. The heart of this book is a completely new section, over 100 pages long, that exposes the fact that 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 exponentially more than during the era Perkins exposed over a decade ago.
As dark as the story gets, this reformed EHM also provides hope. Perkins offers specific actions each of us can take to transform what he calls a failing Death Economy into a Life Economy that provides sustainable abundance for all.

Touching the Jaguar: Transforming Fear into Action to Change Your Life and the World
Coming Summer 2020!
As a young Peace Corps volunteer dying in Ecuador, John Perkins was saved by a shaman who taught him to “touch the jaguar”—to change his perception of what he feared and transform it into energy for positive action. He then became an “economic hit man” and convinced developing countries to build huge projects that put them perpetually in debt to the World Bank and other US-controlled institutions in a new form of colonialism.
Returning to the Amazon and seeing the damage foreign companies had done opened his eyes to the destructive impact of his work. In this book coming in the summer of 2020, Perkins details the powerful influence shamanism had on his transformation to decolonizer. He discusses his work with native people in Latin America and provides a strategy for us to overcome our fears, decolonize our minds, and collaborate in new ways to heal the wounds inflicted on our planet.
