Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins was eye opening. I suspected the oil was the at the source of most US conflicts, but it goes much further than that. According to the author, we try to loan mass amounts of money many oil rich countries, know that money will come back to US construction and engineering companies. Because these countries near reach the projected growth we promised would follow the loan, we are also ensuring that we will have forced loyalty and cheap sources of oil. I did feel that the author was a bit of a hypocrite. He talks about what you can do, such as reduce your own greed and oil consumption, but talks about the large amounts of money he made, and how he has been traveling the world. Does not sound like he is taking is own advice. Now is a great time to read this book however, with another Bush running for office. This book talks about the many evils both senior & junior Bush have done while in office. READ IT!
