Confessions of an economic hit man - John Perkins


Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is John Perkins’ fast-paced autobiography, which reveals his career as an economist for an international consulting firm. Perkins says he was actually an “Economic Hit Man.” His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the United States to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to U.S. corporations.

Perkins takes the reader through his career and explains how he created economic projections for countries to accept billions of dollars in loans they surely couldn’t afford. He shares his battle with his conscience over these actions and offers advice for how Americans can work to end these practices which have directly resulted in terrorist attacks and animosity towards the United States.

 

 I read that....amazing...truly! Good book and I highly recommend it.

 

I´d also recommend Charlie Wilson´s War. There is a move by the same name based on the book, but it´s silly and leaves way too much out.

“İÇİMİZDEKİ ZALİM” 

Yazan = Emre KONGAR 

( Sosyalbilimci ) 

 

Yazara gore:

-Hayvanlar ve bitkiler masumdur. 

-İnsanlar da doğarken masum olarak doğarlar.Ama ne oluyor da, hayatın doğal akışı içinde insanlar, dünyanın en zalim varlığı haline dönüşüyor ve canavarlaşıyor?İnsan beyni, bu olumsuz yeniden yapılanma için neye göre karar veriyor? 

-Yapılan araştırmalar gösteriyor ki: Başka insanlar tarafından ezilen bir insan, herhangi bir güce sahip olunca bunun intikamını almak için başkalarını ezmeye başlıyor ve içindeki canavar ortaya çıkıyor. 

-Bunun nedeni, bilim adamları tarafından, bir bilimsel faktor olarak anlaşılamıyor ve ölçülemiyor.

-İnsan bir meçhul.Ne zaman, nerede, neden, nasıl, ne yapacağı açıkça belli olmuyor.

-“Ama bir kimseyi az da olsa tanımak istiyorsanız, ne dediğine hiç önem vermeyin; sadece onun yaptıklarına bakın.

´The Young Atatürk´

The Young Atatürk: From Ottoman Soldier to Statesman of Turkey’ by George W. Gawrych (I.B. Tauris, 2013, $35, 288 pages)

 

There has been a resurgence of popular interest in Mustafa Kemal Atatürk of late. Almost all opposition groups have been selectively reconsidering the legacy of the Turkish Republic’s founder, in response to the country’s bitter recent culture wars and in the afterglow of the summer’s Gezi protests. Abroad, interest in Atatürk was also piqued by anti-government protesters photographed waving around his picture, so it’s probably an auspicious time to be publishing a new book on the man. This title by historian George W. Gawrych is primarily focused on the military aspect of the “young Atatürk,” and self-admittedly doesn’t aim to provide a complete assessment of its subject’s broader legacy. Still, it does leave the reader wishing for a rather more comprehensive appraisal; the young Atatürk may be inextricable from the military Atatürk, but considering either with only minimal reference to the broader sweep of Ottoman decline and republican revival makes for a pretty dry read.
