"When I read Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, I could not have known that, some years later, I would be on the receiving end of the type of `economic hit' that Perkins so vividly narrated ... Perkins has, once again, made a substantial contribution to a world that needs whistle-blowers to open its eyes to the true sources of political, social, and economic power" -- Yanis Varoufakis, former Minister of Finance, Greece
"Must reading for those that know another world is possible! Perkins' story, however, is less about individual guilt and more about the systemic programming and tempting of males in patriarchal societies and their global power elites. Perkins' revelations shock us and illuminate how these same incentives in academia keep reproducing the compartmentalized worldviews and sophisticated economic models rationalizing inequity, greed, egotism, competitive self-interest and global expansionism via GDP-growth and debt." * Hazel Henderson, author of Beyond Globalization and Building a Win-Win World *
"I was hazy on the precise details of how third world debt came about, but after reading Confessions of an Economic Hit Man I consider myself rather better informed. And a lot more dismayed... it's all here in toe-curling detail" * Guardian *
