The Shock Doctrine: The Rise Of Disaster Capitalism

A public lecture by author Naomi Klein
Education Auditorium, University Of Regina
Tuesday, Sept 23 7:30 pm

In an era of growing climatic, economic, and geopolitical instability, Naomi Klein’s analysis of the rise of neo-liberalism and the political uses to which disasters are put is useful and timely indeed. As William S. Kowinski of The San Francisco Chronicle has said, “Klein may well have revealed the master narrative of our time.”

This event will provide a venue for discussing and debating Klein’s ideas, for introducing them to a new generation of activists, and for connecting ideas to action.

Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist and syndicated columnist and author of the international and New York Times bestsellers The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and No Logo.

This event is co-sponsored by the Regina Public Interest Research Group, the Social Policy Research Unit, Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation, Prairie Dog Magazine, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives-Saskatchewan, and the Regina & District Labour Council.
