About half way through Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine, and I see this book as a furtherance of Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. Even though these stories take place outside the United States, there are US players, often working behind the scenes to stir up situations leading to the overthrow of governments that are ‘unfriendly’ to the interests of corporations that have strong U.S. ties. And of course, all of it in this case is tied to the economic shock philosophy of Milton Friedman, famed award winning economics guru of the University of Chicago, and hero to corporatists around the globe.
I ditto Dan’s high recommendation of this book (see #6 on this list).
This book is excellent, well-written, and infuriating.
