Read in August, 2007

Klein presents a very strong case for how the neo-liberal economic movement has become so morally bankrupt and incapable of the creativity necessary for making a living honestly in her expose of how they foster global warming in order to reap profits from cleaning up the disasters (or paving them over with new hotels that only the uber-rich can afford, choking off yet more indigenous populations who have the real rights to those lands). This is essential reading for anyone who is truly interested in how global capitalism works and wants to know how it is destroying the planet.
