I Might Have A Criticism Of This Video

I can't tell if he's anti-capitalism or not. I wonder what his thoughts are on the Austrian school of economics. He does at least seem sincere though.

Short and to the point ....

I liked it.

I would like to emphasize one point and let's just presume for arguments sake everything is 100% true.

There was no one holding a gun to anyone's head when money was initially offered and accepting it is the source of the problem. Borrowing is civilized gambling.

Actually there was a gun pointed to their heads...

The person speaking is John Perkins, who was an economic hitman. It was his job to go to developing countries and let the leaders know if they didn't accept a loan and use the money to pay international corporations for their services, a 'jackal' would be sent to assassinate them.

Exact Quote @ :10 Of Your First Link

"Ok John Perkins, in your first book Confessions of an Economic Hitman you lay out the case of how these economic hitmen work, basically they support local dictators in various countries, they load em up full of, with a lot of debt and if they don't pay the debt they send in as you call the jackals ..."

Please provide a source for the assertion they send in the jackals to force them to take on debt. Video states jackals are sent in if they don't pay debt.

When he states "they support local dictators" that sounds like they set out to specifically find people with an agenda who will need $$$.

I don't recall if in the book he comes right out and admits it..

or if he more hints at it. However I do believe he alludes to or states this outright in one of the videos posted below the cartoon...
