This fortnight in New World Notes, radio programs #191-192, November 1 & 8, 2011
"Economic hit-man" John Perkins tells fascinating behind-the-scenes stories of exactly how the US-based corporate empire imposes its will (& greed) on developing countries.
Recorded live in 2005 and never before broadcast.
In Part One (NWN #191), Perkins tells how the US overthrew Iran's democratic government in 1953 ... how he himself was recruited by the NSA & trained to serve the Empire (a.k.a., "the corporatocracy") ... and of his early failures to corrupt the governments of Panama and Ecuador (ca. 1980). Time to send in the "jackals"!
In Part Two (NWN #192), Perkins explains the the read reason the U.S. invaded Panama and overthrew Noriega in 1989. And he tells of one of his--and the Empire's--great successes: Saudi Arabia. The West made a fortune from the deal but--as Perkins sees it--the consequences have been horrific.
Recorded by John Schwenk on January 10, 2005, in West Hartford, Connecticut. Many thanks to John for the recording--which I have slightly condensed for radio broadcast.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Boardwalk") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.

Series overview: Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want ... and what they're trying to make us settle for.
