How Economic Shock Therapy Backfired in Iraq (2005)

A speech by Naomi Klein

In her speech, Naomi Klein, award winning journalist and author of the international best seller, No Logo, talks about democracy and how the idea and the term are misused over and over again by politicians. She focuses on the discrepancy between the democracy promised by the Bush Administration to the Iraqi people and the reality in Iraq after the invasion. She stresses that the invasion of Iraq was done on the basis of economic interests.  Her main message is that true democracy begins with a conscient acting of all of us.
