Product Description

The Rise of Disaster Capitalism features Naomi Klein explaining the ideas and research behind her bestselling book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. In this riveting lecture and interview, Klein challenges and exposes the popular myth of the free market economy's peaceful global victory Around the world there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos, exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally implement their policies. They are the shock doctors. From Chile in 1973 to Iraq today, this is the chilling tale of how a few are making a killing while more are getting killed. Portions of the proceeds from the sale of the DVD go to the UK non-profit organization War on Want.


“Naomi Klein is one of the most important new voices in American journalism today.”  —Seymour M. Hersh, Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist

“Naomi Klein is an investigative reporter like no other. She roams the continents with eyes wide open and her brain operating at full speed, finding connections we never thought of and patterns which eluded us.”  —Howard Zinn, author, A People’s History of the United States on The Shock Doctrine

“Naomi Klein's exposé of neo-liberal economics is certain to be sensational. She rips away the ‘free trade’ and globalization ideologies that disguise a conspiracy to privatize war and disaster and grab public property for the rich few."   —Chalmers Johnson, author, the Blowback Trilogy

"If you don't live in an urban area likely to be visited by a luminary like Klein, this skillfully produced lecture is an excellent way to supplement the experience of an in-person lecture."  —Feminist Review
