Naomi Klein's great book, The Shock Doctrine is now a documentary, which airs, in my area on 11/22. It was originally available on Pay-per-view, but is now airing free, on cable.

The documentary, is billed as a "Naomi Klein's ....Searing, disturbing documentary examines the concept of "disaster capitalism," which involves the U.S. exporting free-market capitalism to troubled nations and the ensuing fallout of such policies.

I highly recommend this documentary.

In my area the cable station is SUNDe, to air on November 22, and repeating a umber of times, after that.
