The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster CapitalismThe Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein

My Rating★★★☆☆

I read it once, and I couldn’t believe it.

I went back to the beginning and read it right through again and I believe it even less.

I want to, honestly. And I feel as strongly as the author that The Shock Doctrine is changing the world. But it runs in the face of all economics I have been taught and I find myself scorning and muttering ‘alarmist’ to some of the more provocative paragraphs.

I will now read Seth Godin to recover.
