Last weekend I was invited to a private home in the Bay Area where I meet John Perkins, the author of the New York Times best seller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
His fascinating book chronicles his 10 year career of helping U.S. intelligence agencies blackmail foreign leaders into serving U.S. interests. In his fascinating book, Perkins discloses true secrets of bribery, sex and murder. This was the most interesting and shocking book I have ever read.
I read it a couple of years ago so it was a real pleasure to finally meet him. John spoke privately with a few of us over beers and shared his concerns about the future of our country.
It was obvious that John was not proud of some of his past and is doing his part through his writing to expose some injustices. After talking to John it was clear why he wrote the book even after being threatened and bribed not to.
