For those of you in the U.K who have or have not read The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein, there is a documentary based on the book on at 10 pm on More4 tonight.
The book really opened my eyes to the free market and how disasters such as coups, natural disasters, war are used as a cover to push though unpopular radical free market policies such as low tax for the rich, reduced public services in countries across the world, from Chile to Iraq to the U.K and to the U.S.
Worth a watch.
Oh...my...god, seriously? Naimi Klein lies throughout the entire book and mis-characterizes Milton Friedman the ENTIRE time.
