      It is literally the best political book I've ever read.  It explains and puts into context everything that's happened since the 2008 crash -- even though it was written before that.  At the time it came out, my naive thinking was "it's terrible what they're doing to these third world countries, but at least they don't dare do it here."  But that was before the crash -- everything we've seen since then has been the shock doctrine applied to the US economy.

      It is now a movie, just search it. It is a hard read but well worth it. I feel I see what's going on and others "just don't get it"
