Monday, June 25, 7:00 PM
Economic Hit Man author John Perkins
Introduces new book at College of Marin
Drawing on his experiences, John Perkins, in his new book, "The Secret History of the American Empire," describes the post-WWII era as one that created history's first truly global empire -- mostly through economics, rather than the military. Now we find ourselves catapulted toward a future that appears catastrophic to many people; however, in Perkins's view it offers great opportunities. Identifying corporations as "the most influential institutions on the planet," he challenges us to transform ourselves and the companies that so deeply impact our lives. He presents a plan for creating a world "that will make our children proud of us."
Mr. Perkins will speak on at College of Marin Olney Hall, 835 College Avenue, Kentfield. Parking is available in student lots for a $3.00 fee. Mr. Perkins' new book will be available for sale and signing.
This event is co-sponsored by Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas and COM's Students for Social Responsibility. An $8-20 donation, $5 students, is requested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. For more information, please call 415/924-3227, email mitf@igc.org, or go to www.mitfamericas.org.
