    John Perkins advises corporations, executives, and entrepreneurs on ways to make the transition from a Death Economy (exploiting resources that are declining at accelerating rates) to a Life Economy (cleaning up pollution, recycling, and other technologies that create life-styles millennials want to inherit).

    A former Chief Economist at an international consulting firm and CEO of a successful alternative energy company, he is best known for his Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (NY TIMES bestseller for 70 weeks, published in over 30 languages). His The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (Feb 2016) delves deep into global systemic problems and describes what we can do – individually and collectively – to correct them.

    John is a founder of Dream Change and The Pachamama Alliance, nonprofit organizations that partner with indigenous people to protect environments and that offer global programs to turn the Death Economy into a Life Economy.

    "We have entered a new era," he says, "We realize that we live on a fragile space station that has no shuttles. The old models are failing. We are blessed with a fabulous opportunity to create new ones that are exciting, productive, and profitable. . ."

    "When I read Confessions Of An Economic Hit Man, I could not have known that, some years later, I would be on the receiving end of the type of economic hit that Perkins so vividly narrated. This book resonates with my experiences of the brutish methods and gross economic irrationality guiding powerful institutions in their bid to undermine democratic control over economic power. Perkins has, once again, made a substantial contribution to a world that needs whistleblowers to open its eyes to the true sources of political, social, and economic power."
    -Yanis Varoufakis, Former Greek Minister Of Finance

    "I loved Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. Ten years ago it exposed the real story. The New Confessions tells the rest of that story – the terrible things that have happened since and what we all can do to turn a death economy into a life economy."
    -Yoko Ono, Artist & Activist

    "The New Confessions offers deep insights into the nefarious ways economic hit men and jackals have expanded their powers. It shows how they came home to roost in the United States – as well as the rest of the world. It is a brilliant and bold book that illuminates the crises we now face and offers a roadmap to stop them."
    -John Gray, PhD, Author of the NY Times bestseller Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

    "John Perkins probed the dark depths of global oligarchy and emerged into the light of hope. This true story that reads like a page-turning novel is great for all of us who want the better world that we know is possible for ourselves, future generations, and the planet."
    -Marci Shimoff, Author of the NY Times bestseller Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul
