Confessions of an economic hitman

Uploaded on Dec 15, 2011


I'm uploading this in connection with the financial crisis in Greece and Europe. Many North Europeans think Greece and Europe is in crisis because the Greeks lived more luxarious that they could afford.




The truth is far from that. Funny, I saw this movie/documentary (Zeitgeist 2) before the crisis broke out in Greece. Watching the things 2 years now, I recognise the pattern that is described by this ex-economic hitman (John Perkins) in this clip, which is a small part of the Zeitgeist 2 documentary which is REALLY worth watching (www.zeitgeistmovie.com).








Now I can tell with certainty, Greece is not paying for its thoughtlessness. Greece is right now under the attack of economic hitmen. And I'm afraid so is the whole Europe, country after country.

They’re adding exotic sauces and electrical outlets, donning Twitter handles and serving shareable plates.





Restaurateurs have gone a-courtin’. The target that chains across the spectrum are wooing? Millennials, the 83.1 million Americans born between 1982 and 2000 who now represent the largest single age group in the U.S.





While some studies show this demographic (also described as 18- to 34-year-olds) dramatically cut back on restaurant visits during the recession, they are now making a dining room comeback.
