Far from the cliché that unquestioningly fuses democracy and capitalism, The Shock Doctrine reviews the recent history of the world (from Pinochet's dictatorship to the reconstruction of Beirut; from Katrina to the tsunami; from 9/11 to the Madrid bombing attack), bringing to the fore the civilian populations that have been subjected to the ruthless voracity of the new lords of the world: the industrial, commercial and government conglomerates for whom disasters, wars and citizen insecurity are the sinister fuel of the shock economy.
