Naomi Klein and How the Shock Doctrine Applies to America Right Now

by | Jun 7, 2020

Naomi Klein’s book The Shock Doctrine focused on what she calls “disaster capitalism,” the sort of corporate feeding frenzy that happens in the wake of major crises. It was on a research trip for that book, to post-Katrina New Orleans, that she connected her work on human rights and labor to climate. Klein shares that journey here, explains the Green New Deal, and talks about what needs to happen to spur a justice-focused transformation in the U.S.
