Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

 "John Perkins has been in and out of the world of high finance and low ethics, and in Hoodwinked he not only illuminates that world with dramatic stories and keen insights, but suggests what we might do to create a better society."

—Howard Zinn, bestselling author of A People's History of the United States

 

"Another thriller from the master storyteller with an insider view. Perkins takes us once again into the dark netherworld of corrupt bankers and economic hit men who lure the unsuspecting into financial ruin and reveals the connection between the folks who for decades enriched themselves at the expense of the world's poor and those who now reap billions at the expense of America. Same people, same scams."

—David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy and The Great Turning, and board chair of YES! magazine

"John Perkins' engaging narrative draws us into a brilliant analysis of capitalism's shadow side, and points us to a hopeful path to a better future. Hoodwinked is a must-read for anyone who cares about our economic welfare, social justice, and our collective well-being."


—DANIEL GOLEMAN, bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence and Ecological Intelligence 

 

Acclaim for Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

 

"Here are the real-life details—nasty, manipulative, plain evil—of international corporate skullduggery spun into a tale rivaling the darkest espionage thriller."
—Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

 

"[A] gripping tell-all book."       
—Rocky Mountain News

 

"Astonishing."   
—Boston Herald

 

"A bombshell. One of those rare instances in which someone deeply entrenched in our governmental/corporate imperialist structure has come forward to reveal in unequivocal terms its inner workings. A work of great insight and moral courage."

 —John E. Mack, Harvard professor and Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Prince of Our Disorder: The Life of T. E. Lawrence

 

"Stunning and groundbreaking. . . . A must-read for anyone who cares about the world."

—Lynne Twist, global activist and author of the bestselling The Soul of Money

 

"With unflinching honesty, Perkins narrates his moral awakening and struggle to break free from the corrupt system of global domination he himself helped to create. This book . . . comes from the heart. I highly recommend it."

—Michael Brownstein, author of World on Fire

Biographie de l'auteur

JOHN PERKINS is the bestselling author of the classic exposé Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and an economist who has enjoyed a front-row seat to world events for the past four decades—as the chief economist of a major consulting firm and economic hit man for the American corporatocracy in the 1970s, CEO of an energy company in the 1980s, and founder of nonprofits in the 1990s and 2000s. He spent the past five years traveling across the United States and to many other countries where he met with government and corporate leaders, spoke at universities and business conferences, talked with people from all walks of life, and gained invaluable insights into the underlying causes of the current crisis.

Reading it will simultaneously anger and depress you 23 novembre 2009
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Although I am a longtime political and news junkie, it is not possible for me to accurately determine the truth of all the claims that are made in this book. However, I do know a great deal of history and have some knowledge of economics so I can reach conclusions on many of the claims. Where I am able, I can confirm the accuracy of what Perkins puts forward.
Perkins is a self-proclaimed former "economic hit man" (EHM), a person whose job is to convince people to accept his economic claims to the long-term detriment of their country or organization. He describes some of the tactics used to press a form of economic imperialism on other countries, where their leaders are pressed to accept loans, allow multi-national corporations to enter the country and engage in rapacious development and describes the consequences if the leaders try to assert independence.
Perkins also goes into detail and explains how similar tactics have been applied in the United States, where there is the increasing consequence of wealth being concentrated in a smaller and smaller economic elite. He has very harsh words for some of the most praised business leaders, especially for the often-praised Jack Welch and Sam Walton, former CEO of General Electric and founder of Wal-Mart respectively.
This is a book that will simultaneously anger and depress you, the anger will be generated from the knowledge that the United States is more and more being governed by the equivalent of a corporate theocracy where the basis of the religion is the ruthless acquisition of wealth. Since the odds are approximately four to one that you are a victim of this movement and your real earnings have declined as a consequence, frustration and depression are a natural consequence of reading about how it has happened.

Hoodwinked 20 décembre 2009
Par Ellen P. Lafleche-christian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was really amazed when reading this book that these things actually go on. OK, call me naive but the thought that our government and large corporations send businessmen (ie hitmen) to other countries with the sole intention of conning them into giving us their natural resources and going into debt just disgusts me.

John Perkins really opens readers eyes to what's going on in the global market. He gives an insight into the global meltdown that many people haven't previously considered. He discusses how just a few large corporations own much of the capital, land and resources around the world and he talks about how these corporations influence and control our politicians.

The second part of Hoodwinked talks about the solution to the problem. He discusses how we can create a healthy economy that encourages businesses to act responsibly and by doing this to create a more sustainable world.

I think this is a really valuable book for people to read. It will truly open your eyes to the ways our government and corporations work and it will get you thinking about ways to fix capitalism. I do agree with John Perkins. I think capitalism can be fixed and I think it's a worthy system that deserves to be fixed.

Fighting the Virus 11 décembre 2009
Par Kevin L. Nenstiel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
John Perkins admits helping hasten the world to the brink of economic collapse that we see around us. He admits suckering governments into bad debt with ill intentions, and confesses his part in bringing down elected governments. He spells out how the techniques he used to hobble nations have also been used against America, and why we will never return to what we once thought of as "normal."

But Perkins doesn't wallow in mere breast-beating. He points out what has gone wrong, and defines how we can make it right. He lays out ways in which we have been duped by "a mutant form of capitalism" and a "virus," and how a return to real, responsible capitalism can save us. He explains everything in clear, lucid terms, and for a book about economic collapse, he is surprisingly full of hope for the future.

Perkins' cold-eyed examination of how a greedy few pressured the world into debt in bad faith is chilling, and he admits it has the ring of a spy thriller. His explains how Operation Ajax, the 1954 American overthrow of the Iranian government, is directly responsible for the shape we're in now. And his prescription for getting out of our tailspin, though perhaps excessively cheerful, is simple and within our grasp.

At times, Perkins' run-down is a little too absolute. For instance, he disparages the concentration of media holdings into only six massive companies, but he never mentions that his book is published by an imprint of Random House, a Bertelsmann company. Hey, doesn't that conflict with his story of corporations as evil monoliths? At least Naomi Klein, in No Logo, admits that corporate might is not unlimited.

On the whole, Perkins dismantles how we got into this mess, and offers us hope to get ourselves out. While most of his confessions are revelations to committed readers, his firsthand knowledge is stunning. And his turnaround, from profit pirate to working class hero, gives us reason to believe we can reclaim what the greedy stole. What he offers is not simple, but it is hopeful, and I suspect that it is also true.

Every consumer in the States should read this book! John Perkins does an exceptional job of guiding you through the troubles and atrocities that our country has burdened not only ourselves, but the rest of the world, through greed and deception. This is a must read for everyone, especially if you have young children, grandchildren, or plan on having children. It is time for us to sustain a future for generations to come. If we don't, as John explains in his book, there will be a disastrous outcome.

Read this book and recommend it to friends and family. It will take time, but with passion, dedication, and hard work we can change the world.

My thanks goes out to John Perkins for sharing his knowledge and showing his dedication.

Hoodwinked Truly Revelatory 11 novembre 2009
Par nettie reynolds - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If there is only one book you read in the next month to understand on a very deep level what has happened to our nation and our financial market, you must read this one.

Perkins, author of the previous "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" has created a gripping, astonishing and purposeful book. If you only read the chapter on "Modern Robber Barons" the book will well worth the investment. Are you at all curious about the 355 billionaires in the United states? You should be.

This book is not only a powerful and stunning story, but it also offers great hope and actionable ideas for change in the future. Perkins invokes all citizens to honor their passions, create a sustainable future, stop the corporatocracy and stop the enslavement of debt.

A Must-Read. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
