The Shock Doctrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Shock Doctrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism is a 2007 book by Canadian author Naomi Klein, and is the basis of a 2009 documentary by the same name directed by Michael Winterbottom.[1]
The book argues that the free market policies of Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman have risen to prominence in some countries because they were pushed through while the citizens were reacting to disasters or upheavals. It is implied that some man-made crises, such as theFalklands war, may have been created with the intention of pushing through these unpopular reforms in their wake.
