Based on his book, "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" is John Perkins' perspective of United State international policies. The Perkins premise is that the United States government sets up third world countries to fail. USA then enslaves these third world countries when they are unable to pay off their massive debt.
"Confession of an Economic Hitman" suffers from inadequate historical research. Perkins forgets to remind his viewers that most of these third world countries were debter nations BEFORE America provided financial and medical assistance. "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" is so one sided in it's argument that the conclusion becomes laughable.
