Book review: Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

The book makes an interesting reading, but don't expect any shocking revelations.
It's a well known fact that secret services kill world leaders who are not "obedient", or they stage coup d'etat to get rid of them.
We know that Saudi Arabia was turned into a disgusting consumerist mall by US contracting companies, that Ecuador was destroyed by oil companies, that Iran and Iraq have been used and abused, we know how Hugo Chavez has been under attack for so long...that most Latin American leaders who had a vision died in air crashed or by the hands of CIA-staged golpe (Allende).

The book covers all these topics, adding some personal encounters of world leaders or destitute people in the 4 corners of the world.

What is really funny is that the author tries to preach and pass us a message, while he has been working for the worst goals for really huge amount of money for his entire life. I would rather choose myself a more coherent guru, thanks.

I have read also the other book of the same author, The Secret History Of the American Empire, again very well written but rather shallow in his analysis.
