Naomi Klein: The Shock Doctrine

Naomi Klein has a new book out today, The Shock Doctrine, which looks like a great study of the corporate embrace of the detestable Friedman philosophy that radical policy change can and should occur through crisis, policy change a less stunned population would surely resist. This was "economic shock treatment," as Friedman called it. If the establishment has ever broken down and displayed its true nature, it was in awarding Friedman a Noble Prize.

Klein invited the talented Alfonso CuarĂ³n (Children of Men) to make a short film as a preview of the book. After watching it, it should be become a full length documentary.

Get your copy of The Shock Doctrine.
