A Conversation with Naomi Klein:
Disaster Capitalism and the Rise of Democratic Reconstruction
With Terry Karl (interviewer)
Thursday, October 16, 2008
7:30 - 9:00pm
In her latest book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, journalist Naomi Klein exposes the strategies of powerful people who cash in on chaos and exploit catastrophe to remake our world in their image. But this is not the whole story: popular renewal and repair movements are gaining the strength not only to take state power but to change the power structures of the state. Join us for a conversation that presents a new paradigm for understanding global politics and celebrates those who continue to work for justice against great odds.
