Hopefully the young are in process of convincing government and the leadership of this world to serve all of the people. CORPORATOCRACY is the corporate-government-combination, a society or system governed or controlled by corporations. While the two retain their own distinct legal structures and managements, the government’s goals and interests are aligned with the corporation’s bottom line. America’s large corporations have acquired, “bought” the asset, the congress and governmental leaders. There is no way to understand either US history or current events without a very close study of the Corporatocracy.
John Perkins says in his books, “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,” that he was a highly paid professional to cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars and their natural resources. He was initially recruited while in business school in the late sixties by the National Security Agency, and ultimately worked for private corporations.
The first real economic hit man was Kermit Roosevelt Jr. in the early 1950s. Kermit was the grandson of Teddy Roosevelt. Kermit overthrew the government of Iran, a democratically elected government. Kermit did this with some bloodshed, but no military intervention, he just spent millions of dollars and replaced Mossadegh with the Shah of Iran. Kermit Roosevelt was a C.I.A. agent, a government employee. If he had been caught, it would be embarrassing for America. So, the decision was made going forward, to use organizations like the C.I.A. and the N.S.A. to recruit potential Economic Hit Men.
Economic Hit Men are sent to work for private consulting companies, engineering firms and construction companies, so that if they get caught, there will be no connection to the government. Perkin’s job was to convince the political and financial leaders of underdeveloped countries to accept enormous development loans from institutions like the World Bank and USAID, saddling them with debts they could not hope to pay back. Then those countries were forced to acquiesce to political pressure from the United States on a variety of issues. Developing nations were effectively neutralized politically, their wealth gaps became wider and their economies were crippled in the long run.
They are masters at funneling money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign “aid” organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of the wealthy few families that control the earth’s natural resources. They use fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, blackmail and murder. The goal is to convince leaders of underdeveloped countries to accept substantially large development loans for large construction and engineering projects to benefit the richest families and local elites. They make sure these projects are contracted to U.S. companies. The loans give the U.S. political influence and access to their natural resources for use and abuse by U.S. companies.
Trickle-down economics is a theory (lie) that says benefiting the wealthy will trickle down to everyone else. The benefits are usually tax cuts on businesses, high-income earners, capital gains and dividends. In reality only a very small portion of the population benefits at the expense of the rest of the population. The truth is this method increase income inequality. Large U.S. companies exploit cheap labor and oil companies destroy local environments and the “economic hit man” is used to speed up and facilitate that process.
