The Shock Doctrine

por davidgp el 24/04/2008

Un cortometraje de la mano de Naomi Klein y Alfonso Cuarón: The Shock Doctrine.

Naomi Klein (No Logo) and Alfonso Cuarón and Jonás Cuarón (Children of Men) have created a short film to accompany her latest book, “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism,” whose thesis is that present-day global capitalism took hold when its advocates learned to exploit disasters. After a disaster (war, tsunami, terrorist attack), you can push your agenda for worsening labor conditions, looser regulation, and pocket-lining exercises (Enron, Halliburton) while the reeling, disaster-struck population of the world has its attention elsewhere.
