Author Biography
Perkins, John (Author)
John Perkins was born on January 28, 1945 in Hanover, New Hampshire. He attended Brown University, and Boston University School of Management during the 1960s. His best-known book is Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (2004), an insider's account of the exploitation or neo-colonization of Third World countries by what Perkins describes as a cabal of corporations, banks, and the United States government.

His 2007 book, The Secret History of the American Empire, provides more evidence of the negative impact of global corporations on the economies and ecologies of poor countries, as well as offering suggestions for making corporations behave more like good citizens.

Since the late 1980's he has been heavily involved with non-profit organizations in Ecuador and around the world.
