On this season finale episode of Going Underground, we speak to the author of the best-selling ‘Confessions of an Economic Hitman’, John Perkins. The 3rd edition of the book with 12 new chapters is out now. He discusses his past as an ‘economic hitman’ in which he would work in the US’ National Security Agency (NSA) to sabotage economies and burden them with debt, resulting in these countries being controlled by the US via debt. He also discusses why he believes China now has its own set of ‘economic hitmen’ and ‘jackals’, following the same strategy as the US, the shift of global power away from the US with the rise of the global south, China and the other BRICS countries, why economic sabotage has become harder for the US to apply in the Middle East, threats to his life for blowing the whistle on the US’ deliberate impoverishing of millions, and much more.
