Lucho book recommendation "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man"
My bro Lucho is prolly the most intelligent & informed dudes on current events & global socioeconomics I know. Most Americans, including myself, prefer more lighter media such as music or movies.
Lucho reads substantive nonfiction books on topics like economics & foreign policy by intelligent dudes such as Noam Chomsky & Paul Krugman. Lucho would figuratively son 98% of talking heads on TV or even editorial writers, despite being half the age of some of those douches to where he could be their literal son!
Lucho is the truth basically on this type of stuff, so when he recommends a book I take it seriously.
Lucho told me yesterday this book "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man". The author Perkins is a "whistle blower" here where he tells about his real experiences as a US economist trying to "reverse robin hood" 3rd world countries to extend corporate welfare for US corporations and extend the power of the US government.
Lucho said it's a great book, and one of those real-life moments analogous to taking the red pill in the Matrix, where you see the reality of the world is really far different & unjust than what our US government & mainstream media (MSM) have most people believing.
