The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism (Naomi Klein)

Leave a Comment

My third Naomi Klein book.  I am reading this both as a follow-up to a message we had in church a few months back, and in preparation for discussions in church next month.  The Amazon review says:  “Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine advances a truly unnerving argument: historically, while people were reeling from natural disasters, wars and economic upheavals, savvy politicians and industry leaders nefariously implemented policies that would never have passed during less muddled times. As Klein demonstrates, this reprehensible game of bait-and-switch isn’t just some relic from the bad old days. It’s alive and well in contemporary society, and coming soon to a disaster area near you.”
