Johan Norberg discusses The Shock Doctrine.

Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine purports to be an exposé of the ruthless nature of free‐​market capitalism and its chief recent exponent, Milton Friedman. Johan Norberg, a Cato Institute Senior Fellow points out that many of the actions for which Klein would like to credit Friedman … Friedman actually opposed. Norberg dissects the Shock Doctrine in his new paper, “The Klein Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Polemics.”
