    I don’t trust John Perkins at all. I have not read “Confessions of an economic hitman” but to any critical thinking person it should sound like complete bullshit. I saw an interview with him and he has Snake Oil written all over him. He claims that he went in to destroy third world economies, yeah right it’s an economic hitmans fault Zimbabwe is fucked not their own stupidity.
