Like U.S. citizens in general, most MAIN employees believed we were doing countries favors when we build power plants, highways, and ports. Our schools and our press have taught us to perceive all of our actions as altruistic. Over the years, I've repeatedly heard comments like, "If they're going to burn the U.S. flag and demonstrate against our embassy, why don't we just get out of their damn country and let them wallow in their own poverty?The larger question then becomes, how do we get back to government "of the people, for the people, and by the people?"

..."We're [Economic Hit Men] paid - well paid - to cheat countries around the globe out of billions of dollars. A large part of your job is to encourage world leaders to become part of a vast network that promotes U.S. commercial interests.

In turn, these leaders bolster their political positions by bringing industrial parks, power plants, and airports to their people. Meanwhile, the owners of the U.S. engineering and construction companies become very wealthy."
