Most of the book is quite depressing, telling stories of government and ccrporate atrocities. But hte last section is quite uplifiting in offering hope for change, specific actions we can take to promote change, and lists of organizations working for change.read more

I liked "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" better, but this was still a great read. While "Confessions" focused more on his personal journey and realization, this book focused more on specific Economic Hit Man experiences in major parts of the world. The book is broken out to Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and does a good job of connecting the events that occurred throughout the world.I especially liked the last section of the book which focused on what you can do to change and influence the world. Very motivating and inspirational!read more
