John Perkins talked about his book Hoodwinked: An Economic Hit Man Reveals Why the World Financial Markets Imploded - and What We Need to Do to Remake Them (Broadway Business November 10, 2009). Mr. Perkins argued that our current economic problems are the outgrowth of a form of predatory capitalism that benefits a relatively small number of people around the world. He talked about the need for global reform to produce stability. He was interviewed on stage by Jonathan Curiel. He then responded to questions from members of the audience.
