On October 17th, 2008, Naomi Klein spoke at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz about her new book: The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. In The Shock Doctrine, 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.
Note: The short documentary "The Shock Doctrine" by Naomi Klein and Alfonso Cuarón was shown before her talk watch here: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=17602059 or here:
