Summary
"Based on the best-selling by Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine seeks to explain the rise of disaster capitalism: the exploitation of moments of crisis in vulnerable countries by governments and big business. The film traces the doctrine's beginnings in the radical theories of Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago and it's subsequent implementation in the past 40 years in countries as disparate as Augusto Pinochet's Chile, Boris Yeltsin's Russia, Margaret Thatcher's Great Britain, and most recently through the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq." -- Case
