Steven Hiatt leads a discussion on A Game as Old as Empire: The Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global Corruption.John Perkins' expose, "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man," became an international word-of-mouth sensation, but it revealed just the tip of the iceberg of the secret world of economic hit men. Now Perkins is joined by a dozen contributors - journalists, investigators, activists, and even other economic hit men in "A Game as Old As Empire."The authors tell how multinational corporations, governments, powerful individuals, banks, other financial institutions, and quasi-governmental agencies operate to enrich small elites and corporate coffers while often impoverishing masses of people and creating debt and dependency that economically enslave countries for generations. Editor Steve Hiatt, who has worked as an editor and writer for several Bay Area companies, including Apple Computer, Netscape, Progressive Asset Management, and Stanford Research Institute, talks this evening with two of the book's contributors, Antonia Juhasz, who writes of "Global Uprising: The Web of Resistance" and Ellen Augustine, who writes on "The Philippines, the World Bank, and the Race to the Bottom" - Cody's Booksmoreless
