Klein's opposition to free-market economics is clearly evident in her book. She draws analogies between the CIA's "shock doctrine" (torture techniques and brainwashing) and the application of free economics in a number of South American countries, Britain, and others. In these countries, she says, the goal is tabla rasa--wiping the slate clean and beginning fresh with a free-market regime. The narration is sharp and clean. Jennifer Wiltsie does not overplay the strong conviction that underlies Klein's beliefs. As a result, Wiltsie's delivery complements the author's arguments, which some listeners may find compelling and disturbing, and other listeners--advocates of a free market--will think are misguided. In either case, the arguments are well presented. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
