Journalist Klein introduced the term "disaster capitalism." Whether covering Baghdad after the U.S. occupation, Sri Lanka after the tsunami, or New Orleans post-Katrina, she witnessed remarkably similar events: people still reeling were hit again, this time with economic "shock treatment," losing their land and homes to corporate makeovers. This book retells the story of Milton Friedman's free-market economic revolution. In contrast to the myth of this movement's peaceful global victory, Klein shows how it has exploited moments of shock and extreme violence in order to implement its economic policies. At its core is the use of cataclysmic events to advance radical privatization combined with the privatization of the disaster response itself. Klein argues that by capitalizing on crises, created by nature or war, the disaster capitalism complex now exists as a booming new economy, the violent culmination of a radical economic project that has been incubating for fifty years.--From publisher description.… (mais)

    The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule por Thomas Frank (AsYouKnow_Bob)
    AsYouKnow_Bob: Frank's canvas is somewhat narrower in scope, but the analysis of the effects of conservative governance is quite similar.

    Ramp Hollow: The Ordeal of Appalachia por Steven Stoll (M_Clark)
    M_Clark: Ramp Hollow looks at the way Appalachia was developed and exploited with the original settlers being progressively marginalized. It shows another side of capitalism long before Milton Friedmann was born.

    The Revolution of Civil Society. Challenging Neo-Liberal Orthodoxy: The Development of the Progressive State por Michael Lloyd (M_Clark)
    M_Clark: Milton Friedmann was heavily influenced by Hayek. This book attacks, in a very philosophical way, the fundamental philosophies of Hayek and the neo-liberals.

    Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq's Green Zone por Rajiv Chandrasekaran (M_Clark)
    M_Clark: This book is a perfect compliment to the book of Naomi Klein who often cites it in her book. Its detailed descriptions of the follies of the people in the Green Zone in Bagdad provides additional coverage on the topics in Klein's book.

A foundation text for the 21st century revolution. One of my new faves. ( )

First off, I really like that this book what written with a clear perspective. This being a journalistic project, the author could have very easily sunk into an artificially “objective” perspective, or try to avoid fully committing to the implications of the story she was telling. Thankfully that didn’t happen. The author clearly has a philosophical and ideological basis for the reporting done in this book, and it’s a compelling one. This isn’t just a criticism of American foreign policy or the avarice of international finance - it’s a indictment of the capitalist system that relies on never ending expansion and increase of profits in order to keep itself alive. Reading this book directly after Marx’s Das Kapital vol. 1, I picked up echos of Marx’s critiques of capitalism that are playing out to this very day. Klein’s fluency with these concepts makes her argument even more compelling.

Of course the main function of this book is to shine a light on the machinations of the neoliberal economic order that has effectively run the world economy for the last 35 years, and it does that very well. Americans have a tendency to view geopolitics on a purely ideological level. This was surely a big part of why conservatives and liberals alike were duped into supporting the Iraq war- we feel like it is our duty as the most “advanced” country in the world to save poor brown people from themselves. Who couldn’t benefit from a free press, religious tolerance, equality for women? And yet this was never what the war in Iraq was about. Klein shows that it is economics first and foremost that drives conflict and social upheaval, not vague concepts about freedom. The great switcheroo of American politics is that we traded the fight for economic rights with the fight over cultural rights, and the reason why is clear: those at the top of society know that discussion of economic rights is much more dangerous to them than vague arguments about kneeling for the National anthem or whatever.

THIS should be required reading in school. It summarizes tactics of capitalism that often fail over the last century. This information can help societies prevent repeating these mistakes and consider other options. Very well documented, easy to read, and thought provoking. Highly recommend. ( )

Just too depressing. Nothing I can do about any of it.

Probably one of the most disturbing books I've ever read. ( )

The Shock Doctrine shows in chilling detail how the free market has been backed up with violence over the last 30 years. I suspect it has stirred up a debate already.
