global economic chop shops and disaster capitalism

4 watch this: The Shock Doctrine Short Film (Naomi Klein.org)

and this:
Naomi Klein, explaining the "The Shock Doctrine" (part 1 of 6)

Read this: The Age of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein (The Guardian/UK).

And this: Free-Market Mischief in Hot Spots of Disaster by Patricia Cohen ( from here: The New York Times/Books )

And this:
The Shock Doctrine: Milton Friedman’s Hold and The People’s Hopeful Resistance, by Jane Smiley
Klein ends her book on a hopeful note — in many places such as Chile and Lebanon, the people have learned from their experiences — they are cannier and more resistant to the shocks administered to them by Bushco and their own ruling classes. Having endured “Disaster Capitalism” for several decades, they understand their own self-interests better and aren’t as easy to fool. I would like to be as hopeful. The question, as always, with Bush and Cheney, is how far are they willing to go? And, is anyone willing to stop them? From John Dean’s article, it doesn’t sound as though it is going to be the Republicans.

And then read this too: How Did We Get Into This Neoliberal Mess? by George Monbiot.
