In this week’s episode of the flagship Lions of Liberty podcast, Marc is joined by the fascinating John Perkins, author of “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” and the updated “New Confessions of an Economic Hitman.” John describes how he was recruited by the NSA and targeted as a potential EHM, or “Economic Hitman”, where his job was to travel the globe, wooing world leaders with fancy economic projections and promises of prosperity in order to convince them to accept crippling loans and debt they could never repay.
Libertarians often concern themselves with foreign intervention, most often focusing on military conflict. But in this show, John Perkins provides a deeper look at an even more insidious level of conflict, the chaos created by EHM’s around the world. John goes on to detail just how he had a spiritual awakening regarding the insidious nature of his profession, and what led him to speak out and in his NY Times bestselling “Confessions of an Economic Hitman.”
