Product Description

A NY Times Bestseller. From the author of No Logo, a groundbreaking alternative history of the most dominant ideology of our time, Milton Friedman's free-market economic revolution. Klein challenges the popular myth of this movement's peaceful global victory. From Chile in 1973 to Iraq today, she shows how Friedman and his disciples have repeatedly harnessed terrible shocks and violence to implement their radical policies. Her rich description of the political machinations required to force these unsavory economic politics on resisting countries, and of the human toll taken, paints a disturbing portrait of hubris - nothing less than the secret history of what we call the 'free market'. Index. 721p.
