2-minute Animation Explains How US “Aid” To Poor Countries Really Works


They want you to think it’s complicated, but it’s really very simple…

This video is an animated and summarized version of an interview with the author of “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”. The book written by a John Perkins a former “economic hitman” who used to work for the US government. It provides Perkins’ account of his career with consulting firm Chas. T. Main in Boston. Before employment with the firm, he had interviewed for a job with the National Security Agency (NSA).

In his own words:

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 included 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.

I was initially recruited while I was in business school back in the late sixties by the National Security Agency, the nation’s largest and least understood spy organization; but ultimately I worked for private corporations. The first real economic hit man was back in the early 1950s, Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., the grandson of Teddy, who overthrew the government of Iran, a democratically elected government, Mossadegh’s government who was Time‘s magazine person of the year; and he was so successful at doing this without any bloodshed—well, there was a little bloodshed, but no military intervention, just spending millions of dollars and replaced Mossadegh with the Shah of Iran. At that point, we understood that this idea of economic hit man was an extremely good one. We didn’t have to worry about the threat of war with Russia when we did it this way. The problem with that was that Roosevelt was a C.I.A. agent. He was a government employee. Had he been caught, we would have been in a lot of trouble. It would have been very embarrassing. So, at that point, the decision was made to use organizations like the C.I.A. and the N.S.A. to recruit potential economic hit men like me and then send us to work for private consulting companies, engineering firms, construction companies, so that if we were caught, there would be no connection with the government.

Below is a full video of his interview, explaining the sort of evil that goes on behind the scenes thanks to American “aid”:

  1. That’s military strategies, America is still a country like any other, we want to be rich, and therefore we use what we got, this isn’t something new, it has been happening all throughout history, if you can’t rule a country successfully then you will deserve what you get. just like stock strategies.

  2. What Ano says is correct, because it doesn’t factor in ANY form of moral evolution. That’s what it seems people hope for — that the world develops some kind of conscience, some sense of what’s right and wrong — not what’s profitable or what can be gotten away with.

    And if people want moral development in their country’s world or economic position, they need to work toward change, whether peaceful or otherwise.

  3. These comments above just add to the uneasiness of living among people who don’t care or want to do anything about these things. So many people who oppose these thing yet one percent of people control it ?? It is almost unbelievable but not really being that no one cares for moral aptitude. crime in the cities and global white collar crime make love when we fall asleep after paying for the evilness to not be true what a she that this is the dark behind the scenes reality of the future.
