    Did not view the link but have heard the author several times. He has an important story to tell. Even with former insiders in the system speaking out people who don't want to understand the system can't be informed.

    Isn't this the truth. Vested interests won't be moved from their world view that they have always been taught is the truth.

    Having read the book...in a nutshell...

    It's about the sort of manipulations that go on behind the scenes that let multinational corporations economically colonize poor countries.

    If you have not heard about this sort of thing, an eye-opener. Mainly what I was interested to note is that when a country's leader refuses to be bought off...the person who is hired to do the killing is always an external contractor, not a CIA operative.

    Here's the author's website:

    And from this page, an excerpt from the book blurb:

    How much are you willing to bet that Libya will be the next recipient of this financial black helping hand? IMF and World Bank vampires are already gathering.
