The National Press Club will host New York Times Bestselling author John Perkins on September 27, 2012. Drawing on experiences described in his two blockbuster books, John Perkins 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." Perkins is the bestselling author of Hoodwinked and Confessions of an Economic Hitman.
