This essay starts its journey from a famous presentation by Ashwin Adarkar in Raychowk, 1999, looking at the prescriptions made current in its wake, and moves on to a long, chilling excerpt from “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” by John Perkins. It ends with a meditation on the function of ideology in the establishment of economic truths, and the proactive and reactive functions of the seemingly warring players in this brutal game whose result has been fixed by its very existence.
