Naomi Klein on the Chicago School and the global financial meltdown:
This speech is a lesson. Some knowledge of economy is required, but overall it is in quite simple words.
The connection made is "... people falling in love with a perfect Utopian system - seductive of the perfect Utopian market." Just as people did with Marxism - but both turned out to be distortions, merely a tool used by powerful people to justify excesses by creating crises.
Interestingly, the speaker calls the Neo-Liberals as well as the extreme Leftists as the "modern Trotsky-ites".
"Milton's misfortune is that his policies have actually been tried"
