The book goes into how "economists" will propose an idea like building a bridge or dam. Then the country will take out debt to build it hoping to make a return based on the projections. Next, big corporations come in and do the work for juicy margins. Except the projections are way above what they will ever get. So then the country has to make mineral concessions to satisfy the debt.
Oh, and if a country refuses or tries to skip payment, then there are coups if not invasions. If the big news corps are running campaigns about how X is the next great evil, then it shows who the next smear campaign is against.
One by one countries got this treatment. Now the only countries left are those in the West. And would you look at where that script just happens to be rolling against now....
You can find the book in all major bookstores and there are probably other versions floating around since it sold a good number of copies.
