The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism

Books, Current Affairs, Film & TelevisionJesse WalkerComment


A book and now a short film produced in part by Children of Men director Jonás Cuarón, THE SHOCK DOCTRINE by Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world-- through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries.
