Dedicated to the impoverished in forgotten places of the world, the new release book BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD: How the Global Elite Drown Poor Nations in a Sea of Debt  questions whether the likes of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the United States Agency for International Development and other big international aid organizations help or hinder the world’s poorest people.

Bankrupting the Third World  also questions whether the aid packages provided are genuine or whether they are scams designed to subjugate Third World countries. And it exposes the culture of corruption within the aforementioned aid organizations and the arrogance with which they treat their Third World ‘clients.’

An excerpt from the book’s blurb follows:

The Morcans reveal there’s a nefarious hidden agenda at play whereby the ‘generosity’ extended by international aid organisations in assisting the development of the Third World and providing relief in the event of natural disasters comes with serious strings attached. Strings designed to fleece vulnerable nations.

The reader is reminded the economic hit men popularized in John Perkins’ 2004 bestseller ‘Confessions of an Economic Hit Man’ are still alive and well – in Africa in particular.

Bankrupting the Third World  puts two poverty-stricken nations under the magnifying glass to reveal the long-term impact of being the recipient of substantial financial aid from the West. The resulting debt accrued by these nations may surprise even the most skeptical reader.

In writing this book, the authors were motivated by one sickening statistic: 21,000 people die from starvation every day. That’s one person every four seconds!

More sickening is the fact such deaths are unnecessary given there is more than enough wealth in the world for everyone to at least receive the basic necessities of life, and more than enough in the Third World for it to organically sustain itself.

By the time you get to the end of this book you’ll see there’s as much wealth to be found in the Third World as there is in the First World. In fact, terms like ‘Third World’ and ‘impoverished nations’ are essentially misnomers as they imply wealth and resources are limited in these forgotten places. The authors aim to dispel that myth once and for all.

It’s hoped Bankrupting the Third World  will contribute in some small way to the masses pressuring world leaders to eradicate the extreme poverty that sees millions of our fellow Human Beings – men, women and children – dying unnecessarily every year.

Bankrupting the Third World, Book #6 in The Underground Knowledge Series, was launched today exclusive to Amazon. It targets the West — in particular the so-called global elite and the big international aid organisations — and it questions whether the ‘aid’ extended to Third World nations is in fact aid or a gigantic scam designed to subjugate those countries.

The Introduction from Bankrupting the Third World  follows:

This book is primarily about international aid organizations and whether they help or hinder the world’s poorest people. The outfits examined include the likes of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Officially, these financial relief organizations aim to reduce corruption in the Third World and Developing nations as part of their detailed and complex poverty alleviation mission. Their main strategy is providing loans to such nations for extensive development programs.

Kimbumba refugee camp in the Congo…just one of many.

However, according to our research and that of many others – economists, human rights activists and independent investigators included – there’s a nefarious hidden agenda at play. An agenda that even many of those working within these organizations, especially low-medium level employees, are not remotely aware of.

This book is divided into two sections.

Part One, titled The Macro of Looting the World’s Poor, exposes the culture of corruption within international financial aid organizations and the arrogance/disdain/contempt with which the Management of these agencies treat their Third World ‘clients.’

In Part Two, titled The Micro of Looting the World’s Poor, we put two Third World nations under the magnifying glass to reveal the long-term impact of being the recipient of substantial financial aid from the West. The resulting debt accrued by these nations may surprise even the most skeptical reader.

Terms like “looting the world’s poor” and “bankrupting the Third World” might sound oxymoronic to those not familiar with geopolitics and distribution of wealth. Especially as society’s less moral operators normally look to loot the rich, not the poor – not to mention the fact that bankrupting the Third World, as such, would seem to be a fruitless endeavor if the perception there’s no real wealth in the Third World was actually true.

However, as this book’s subtitle suggests, it’s about “How the Global Elite Drown Poor Nations in a Sea of Debt,” and how those same global elitists don’t go to all that trouble and (initial) expense for no reason or for no financial gain.

We trust by the time you get to the end of this book you’ll agree there’s as much wealth to be found and fortunes to be made in the Third World as there is in the First World. In fact, terms like ‘Third World’ and ‘impoverished nations’ are essentially misnomers as they imply limited wealth and resources exist in these forgotten places. This book sets to dispel that myth once and for all.

Lastly, we hope BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD will contribute in some small way to the masses pressuring world leaders to eradicate the extreme poverty that sees millions of our fellow Human Beings – men, women and children – dying unnecessarily every year.

*****************************************

Our next book, BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD: How the Global Elite Drown Poor Nations in a Sea of Debt, seriously questions whether the World Bank and other big international aid organizations help the world’s poor.

At the outset, we ask: What if much of the aid extended to impoverished nations is not charitable, but selfish, with serious strings attached – strings designed to fleece vulnerable nations?

We also ask: What if the international financial aid organizations are all gigantic scams designed to subjugate Third World countries?

The answers may surprise.

Of all the statistics we uncovered during our research, one in particular has stayed in our minds throughout the writing process:

21,000 people die every day (one person every four seconds) from starvation.

That’s a sickening figure considering our research has also shown there is more than enough wealth in the world for everyone to at least receive the basic necessities of life.

Even more sickening when you consider there is more than enough wealth in the Third World for it to organically sustain itself.

We hope this book will contribute in some small way to the masses pressuring world leaders to eradicate the extreme poverty that sees millions of our fellow Human Beings – men, women and children – dying unnecessarily every year.

To assist our research for Bankrupting the Third World, the next planned book in our Underground Knowledge Series, we asked members of our ‘Underground Knowledge’ group on Goodreads.com the following question: Do you believe global financial aid institutions such as the World Bank, the IMF and USAID primarily help or hinder Third World nations?

Cover reveal for:

BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD: How the Global Elite Drown Poor Nations in a Sea of Debt

Unsurprisingly, interim poll results show that 67% of respondents believe the big global aid organizations are more a hindrance than a help to Third World nations; only 4% believe they’re a help; and the balance are unsure.

Poll respondents’ comments make for interesting reading. Examples follow:

If the leaders of the developed countries wanted to help the people from the third world countries, they should have done it years ago without hesitation.

They are almost entirely funded by the U.S. taxpayers, and I want my money back! The design and build of their headquarters also cost a darn fortune!

World Bank, IMF, USAID are basically tools of the US Government and weapons used to blackmail third world countries.

It’s a case of too many (greedy) cooks in the kitchen.

Their primary interests is themselves. Third world nations are there to be exploited by them for resources. Obviously, they would like all to be third world nations!

It is simple they help by bailing out nation but these nations typically have no way of repaying theses loans and default on them, which is the hindrance.

Dirty water, barren land, land stolen for rubber plantations and GMO crops, keep the Africans and others hungry.

“Western governments tax their citizens to fund the World Bank, lend this money to corrupt Third World dictators who abscond with the funds, and then demand repayment which is extracted through taxation from poor Third World citizens, rather than from the government officials responsible for the embezzlement. It is in essence a global transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich. Taxpayers around the world are forced to subsidize the lavish lifestyles of Third World dictators and highly-paid World Bank bureaucrats who don’t even pay income tax.” -Ron Paul’s statement at the World Bank Hearing, May 22, 2007

************************************

In a revealing interview John Perkins, bestselling author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, published in 2004, has divulged he began writing the book in the 1980’s, but “threats or bribes” always convinced him to stop.

John Perkins

Economic hit man Perkins.

The interview, part of a short documentary, is featured in our ‘Underground Knowledge’ discussion group on the popular literary site Goodreads.com – and it’s well worth a look.

In it, Perkins maintains his function was to convince the political and financial leadership of underdeveloped countries to accept enormous development loans from institutions like the World Bank and USAID. Saddled with debts they could not hope to pay, those countries were forced to acquiesce to political pressure from the United States on a variety of issues. Perkins argues in his book that developing nations were effectively neutralized politically, had their wealth gaps driven wider and economies crippled in the long run.

His definition of economic hit men (EHMs), incidentally, is highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars.
