Show synopsis The shocking stories in "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" were just the tip of the iceberg. The hidden web of multinational corruption is more pervasive -- and far more sinister -- than "Confessions" revealed. This new book shows how corporations, governments, individuals, financial institutions, and quasi-governmental agencies enrich corporations and the elite while impoverishing masses of people and economically enslaving entire countries. Combining first-hand accounts from economic hit men with reports from journalists and other investigators, "A Game As Old As Empire" exposes the financial shell game being played all over the world. It shows how the system really works, with detailed examples, facts, and figures that underscore the fact that " business as usual" for the elite carries a heavy price for the rest of the world. It then offers constructive suggestions showing what ordinary citizens can do to confront and change this destructive web of control. This ten-CD release from The Audio Partners is published simultaneously with the hardcover edition of the title from Berrett-Koehler Publishers.
