Your Call 092607 Shock Doctrine

What happens when societies are hit with massive collective shocks -- wars, terror attacks, and natural disasters? Journalist Naomi Klein says they are used to push through highly unpopular shock therapy. On the next Your Call, we talk with Klein about her new book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. In it, Klein reveals the cunning way opportunists use disasters to remake societies as free market wonderlands. How can the system free itself from what Klein calls the shock doctrine? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
