Omar Ha-Redeye gave me a ‘heads up’ on this amazing video about Naomi Klein’s new book, “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.”

You can also see this video on YouTube’s site

Directed by Jonas Cuaron. Alfonso Cuaron, director of “Children of Men”, and Naomi Klein, author of “No Logo”, present a short film from Klein’s book “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.”

Quote from the support website:

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.
