"The Shock Doctrine" is a groundbreaking alternative history of the most dominant ideology of our time, Milton Friedman's free-market economic revolution. Naomi Klein challenges the popular myth of this movement's peaceful global victory. From Chile in 1973 to Iraq today, Klein shows how Friedman and his followers have repeatedly harnessed terrible shocks and violence to implement their radical policies. TICKETS: $75-$200 for two for Dinner with the author, includes autographed copy of "The Shock Doctrine" and reserved seating at the Rio; $25 for reserved seats at the Rio event; $15 general seating.
