Naomi Klein has just come out with an extremely interesting book ‘The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism’. It’s a serious work of great importance, describing the exploitation of disasters by corporate capitalism. Klein sifts through the rhetoric and uncovers an extremely unpleasant side to the doctrine of the free market.
A very informed John Cusack interviews Klein about her book, and discusses the necessity of labeling the savage type of economic system we now live under.
