In this episode of Keen On, Andrew Keen talks to John Perkins about his latest book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (3rd ed.), and how China and the United States are both contributing to what he calls the “death economy” and how to create an alternative system that will save both our planet and our souls.
John Perkins explains how the current economic system is based on a model of growth that is unsustainable, and how we must create a new system that is based on sustainability and justice. He shares his vision of a world where everyone has access to clean water, clean air, and healthy food, and where we can all live in harmony with nature. He also talks about the importance of investing in renewable energy sources and how this could help us transition to a more sustainable future.
This episode of Keen On is a must-listen for anyone interested in learning more about the global economy and how we can create a better future for ourselves and our planet. Be sure to check out Lit Hub’s YouTube Channel for more episodes of Keen On and additional videos.
