The Shock Doctrine: a discussion
Naomi Klein, Neil Smith
Abstract. In this discussion of her book The Shock Doctrine (2007, Metropolitan Books), Naomi Klein outlines a number of its key themes and brings the argument to bear on the California wildfires and developments in Latin America. Key issues discussed include the relation between disaster capitalism and creative destruction, natural disasters, neoliberalism, the antiglobalisation movement, the ‘9/11 truth’ campaign, and the relation of this book to her earlier No Logo (2000, Knopf Canada). Questions come from Neil Smith and from the audience at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
