Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign ""aid"" organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet's natural resources. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.

Shocking Bestseller: The original version of this astonishing tell-all book spent 73 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, has sold more than 1.25 million copies, and has been translated into 32 languages. New Revelations: Featuring 15 explosive new chapters, this expanded edition of Perkins's classic bestseller brings the story of economic hit men (EHMs) up to date and, chillingly, home to the US. Over 40 percent of the book is new, including chapters identifying today's EHMs and a detailed chronology extensively documenting EHM activity since the first edition was published in 2004. Former economic hit man John Perkins shares new details about the ways he and others cheated countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Then he reveals how the deadly EHM cancer he helped create has spread far more widely and deeply than ever in the US and everywhere else—to become the dominant system of business, government, and society today. Finally, he gives an insider view of what we each can do to change it. Economic hit men are the shock troops of what Perkins calls the corporatocracy, a vast network of corporations, banks, colluding governments, and the rich and powerful people tied to them. If the EHMs can't maintain the corrupt status quo through nonviolent coercion, the jackal assassins swoop in. The heart of this book is a completely new section, over 100 pages long, that exposes the fact that all the EHM and jackal tools—false economics, false promises, threats, bribes, extortion, debt, deception, coups, assassinations, unbridled military power—are used around the world today exponentially more than during the era Perkins exposed over a decade ago. The material in this new section ranges from the Seychelles, Honduras, Ecuador, and Libya to Turkey, Western Europe, Vietnam, China, and, in perhaps the most unexpected and sinister development, the United States, where the new EHMs—bankers, lobbyists, corporate executives, and others—“con governments and the public into submitting to policies that make the rich richer and the poor poorer.” But as dark as the story gets, this reformed EHM also provides hope. Perkins offers a detailed list of specific actions each of us can take to transform what he calls a failing Death Economy into a Life Economy that provides sustainable abundance for all.

In "Postcards from SAddam: The True Confessions of an Economic Hit Man ", the author, a former international lobbyist, recounts his experiences working abroad and how, unlike so-called Economic Hit Men, he and his colleagues, most of whom were former CIA clandestine operations officers, never bribed foreign officials. Instead, they relied on CIA agents' primary tool: Tradecraft. The author shares how he used negotiation & conflict management principles - classic elements of Tradecraft - to secure contracts for U.S. companies, manage workplace conflict, and most importantly, to negotiate his way out of precarious situations. The most notable of these was a risky connecting flight through a hostile Muslim country, where purely by chance, he crosses paths with Saddam Hussein. Traveling without the Italian passport he normally used to conceal his American identity, he is unable to get to his connecting flight as the airport and his plane is surrounded by Saddam's guards. Trapped in the airport carrying only his American passport, and a briefcase with documents linking him to the U.S. intelligence community, he puts tradecraft to the ultimate test. As he weighs his options, he recalls a similar situation in Chile involving another dictator, Augusto Pinochet, and one in Argentina where his tradecraft helps him narrowly elude imprisonment by a fiercely anti-American Argentine colonel. As he draws parallels between countries and dictators on the use of power and true leadership, comparing the highly polarized political climate in Chile during Pinochet's rule to the current political climate in the U.S., he stresses the importance of fact-checking and how the Chilean media sometimes mischaracterized Pinochet's regime while downplaying the violence of extremist groups. In one of the book's most poignant accounts, he then describes how violent extremists targeted his Chilean contact, Solange - his co-worker and the young woman he'd planned to marry, who may very well have saved his life. Comparing Pinochet to Castro, the author explains how rewards and recognition are sometimes conferred on leaders with dubious accomplishments, while those with tangible accomplishments receive little to none, comparing them to business leaders. Delving into the realm of business and organizational conflict management, he then describes his experiences negotiating with global conglomerates while managing the international division of the U.S.'s biggest mobile electronics company. Coining the term "Paperclip Expediters" to describe ineffective managers who reap undeserved rewards and recognition when the net result of their leadership is ruin and the destruction of wealth, he compares these to Fidel Castro in Cuba. In a final dramatic account, he describes how tradecraft kept him from making a fatal mistake and prompted a Good Samaritan to help him. Although initially suspicious of the Good Samaritan helping him in his untimely encounter with Saddam and his guards, his suspicions are soon dispelled. As this Good Samaritan, a Muslim, is guiding him through a secret tunnel, the pair are apprehended. Realizing that his Muslim friend has just put himself in jeopardy by concealing his American identity from the soldier questioning him, the author executes a risky psychological maneuver perfectly to get himself and his friend released. However, he will later have no choice but to risk going through that same tunnel a second time. Although he will make the second attempt alone, it won't be without the help of his Muslim friend.
