The shock doctrine : the rise of disaster capitalism

Journalist Klein introduced the term "disaster capitalism." Whether covering Baghdad after the U.S. occupation, Sri Lanka after the tsunami, or New Orleans post-Katrina, she witnessed remarkably similar events: people still reeling were hit again, this time with economic "shock treatment," losing their land and homes to corporate makeovers. This book retells the story of Milton Friedman's free-market economic revolution. In contrast to the myth of this movement's peaceful global victory, Klein shows how it has exploited moments of shock and extreme violence in order to implement its economic policies. At its core is the use of cataclysmic events to advance radical privatization combined with the privatization of the disaster response itself. Klein argues that by capitalizing on crises, created by nature or war, the disaster capitalism complex now exists as a booming new economy, the violent culmination of a radical economic project that has been incubating for fifty years.--From publisher description.

  • "Erst Schock durch Krieg oder Katastrophe, dann der so genannte Wiederaufbau. So lautet die immer gleiche Strategie. Ob in Bagdad oder Afghanistan nach der Invasion, ob in New Orleans nach "Katrina" oder in Sri Lanka nach dem Tsunami: Während die Menschen noch gelähmt von der Katastrophe sind, werden sie einer weiteren, diesmal ökonomischen "SchockBehandlung" nach den neoliberalen Vorstellungen unterzogen. Existenzen werden durch den Ausverkauf an westliche Konzerne vernichtet, es herrscht WildWestKapitalismus der reinsten Sorte. Naomi Klein erzählt die Geschichte einer der wirkmächtigsten Ideologien unserer Zeit, Milton Friedmans ökonomischer Doktrin des freien Marktes. Sie zeigt, wie deren Siegeszug in den letzten dreißig Jahren auf extremer Gewalt und auf Katastrophen beruht, um die Mechanismen der ungezügelten Marktwirtschaft rund um die Welt von Lateinamerika über Osteuropa und Russland bis nach Südafrika und in den Irak durchzusetzen."

Klein dénonce ici les stratégies concertées des tenants de l'ultralibéralisme pour assurer la prise de contrôle de la planète : une mise à contribution des crises et désastres pour substituer aux acquis des civilisations et aux valeurs démocratiques les seules lois du marché et de la spéculation."

  • "An introduction to "disaster capitalism" argues that the global free market has exploited crises, violence, and shock in the past three decades to promote radical privatization that benefits large corporations and powerful interest groups."
  • "The story of how countries are shocked - by wars, terror attacks, coup d'etats, economic crisis and natural disasters. And of how countries are then shocked again - by those who exploit that shock to push through economic reforms that, rather than help a country rebuild itself, serve only to further break it down."
