Is China following America’s footsteps in exploitation of the third world? Author John Perkins (Confessions of an Economic Hitman) exposes how economic hitmen work through organizations like the International Monetary Fund to demand underdeveloped countries pay up. Is China now exploiting these countries? What is debt slavery? It means economic hitmen, in which the US has been very successful, controlling other countries through debt. Now it is China’s turn – and the US doesn’t like it. China has learned from the mistakes and successes of the US. Where will this end – if it ever does? China is lending money all over the world and investing. Will they end up in control of all world economies? John Perkins joined Thom to discuss what is likely to happen.
