Economic Hit Men

The US is "World Class" when it comes to Economic Hit Men.    Google book on this subject.   Very enlightening.

I summarize

Send "experts" to lie about the benefits of infrastructure
Corrupt and bribe the government officials to approve new infrastructure
Finance the new infrastructure
Build the new infrastructure and make billions
Exert influence by holding the huge debt over their heads
Take over assets or force them into more "investments" when economic realities come home to roost.
Wash, rinse, repeat. 

This is even more evil when the infrastructure is nuclear
