The Shock Doctrine
- The Rise of Disaster Capitalism
- By: Naomi Klein
- Narrated by: Jennifer Wiltsie
- Length: 9 hrs and 2 mins
In her ground-breaking reporting, Naomi Klein introduced the term "disaster capitalism". Whether covering Baghdad after the U.S. occupation, Sri Lanka in the wake of the tsunami, or New Orleans post-Katrina, she witnessed something remarkably similar. People still reeling from catastrophe were being hit again, this time with economic "shock treatment": losing their land and homes to rapid-fire corporate makeovers.

A must read !!!
Once you will read this book you will enjoy the understanding of what is going on right now between the IMF & PIGS countries ( Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Spain).
you will be able to predict the next move of the Chicago boys in regards to the future of these countries...
Enjoy the reading (listening) :)
