Interview: John Perkins (Economic Hit Man)

Matt Davio at MissTrade interviews John Perkins, author of Hoodwinked and Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

Some interesting ideas shared here on US foreign policy and the alleged role that economic consultants/"hit men" (as Perkins tags his former career) play in shaping the fates of many across the globe.

If you'd like to hear more about Perkins' life as an "Economic Hit Man", check out this Financial Sense Newshour interview from 2005 (soon after his famously titled book was released).

You may also want to check out some additional interviews from Davio's Trader Talk series. Discussions with traders Brian Shannon, Fari Hamzei, and Phil Pearlman are just a few that I have enjoyed.
