The Shock Doctrine

via 3quarksdaily:

Alfonso Cuarón, director of Children of Men, and Naomi Klein, author of 'No Logo', present a short film from Klein's new book The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. High quality QT and WMV are also available. Klein looks at an economic model pursued by some sectors of society with enormous control that make money from disaster and discourage peace and stability.

Also, here's part 1 of 6 clips from a Klein lecture on the same subject.
