The Shock Doctrine
The Rise of Disaster Capitalism
Around the world in Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos; exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally remake our world in their image. They are the shock doctors. Thrilling and revelatory, The Shock Doctrine cracks open the secret history of our era. Exposing these global profiteers, Naomi Klein discovered information and connections that shocked even her about how comprehensively the shock doctors' beliefs now dominate our world - and how this domination has been achieved. Raking in billions out of the tsunami, plundering Russia, exploiting Iraq - this is the chilling tale of how a few are making a killing while more are getting killed.

All the Response Joe Romm Is Going To Get From Me

Dear Joe,

Congratulations on your hasty and unnecessary hatchet job on a book I haven't even finished yet, based on an edited interview about one-tenth of its content. A book of which you haven't read a single word.

Disagree with the interview I gave, fine. But to assume you know what evidence is in the book and can therefore dismiss it outright is a new twist on old-school arrogance. Impressive.

Nice work as well on telling people not to see a film that is also far from finished, based on material that is not even planned to be in the documentary at all. (Feel free to call me next time you'd like to check a fact.)

Let's hope your next work is not subjected to such extreme prejudice.

Joe, we clearly have some disagreements -- as well as huge common ground. But if anyone is guilty of taking a sledge hammer to an ally here, I suggest you take a quick glance at what's in your (bloody) hand.

Once the book is done, I'll have lots more time to debate the various points in your post. But for now, I've got a book to finish. I realize this is a disappointment and that you are spoiling for a fight with me ASAP, but look on the bright side -- when the book comes out, you won't have to write a review. You can just link to yourself.

Respectfully,
Naomi

p.s BTW, you do know I didn't write the headline, right? Just checking, cuz you seem to know so much.

p.p.s. I could have forgiven a lot, but lumping me in with Lomborg? That one is going to haunt you buddy.
