A Game as Old as Empire The Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global Corruption
By Steven Hiatt

"A Game As Old As Empire" exposes many more shocking secrets of a worldwide web of control, corruption, and plunder. It tells how multinational corporations, governments, powerful individuals, banks, other financial institutions, and quasi-governmental agencies operate to enrich small elite and corporate coffers while often impoverishing masses of people and creating debt and dependency that economically enslave countries for generations. This new book provides the first full inside look at how this dark and dirty world functions. It shows that the economic hit man game and the web of global corruption are far more widespread, pervasive, and destructive than Perkins described in Confessions.And, it reveals the deep and dark connections between this economic hit man game and the domination of global empire. Each chapter focuses on a particular case, detailing the methods used to deceive, steal, corrupt, and enforce compliance. These methods range from the clearly sinister (such as bribery, fraud, looting, money laundering, threats, and even the use of "jackals" and other means of violence) to the seemingly altruistic (such as many types of debt relief, development assistance, and foreign aid) that in fact are highly exploitative and onerous.
