Group Work - In your group, answer your question as specifically as possible. Take notes in the comments or in your notes to bring back to the class. For the first ten minutes, use Klein's chapter (or other readings as appropriate). For the second ten minutes, you may also turn to internet research tools.

GROUP ONE: What does Klein's title (The Shock Doctrine) refer to? What might be some examples of these "Shocks"?

GROUP TWO: Who was Milton Friedman? How does he relate to Klein's argument?

GROUP THREE: What is the "disaster capitalism complex"? How does it impact the relationship between government and corporations? Why does Klein think that it's a problem?

GROUP FOUR: What evidence from other cluster texts might support Klein's argument? Other examples you can think of? Might other examples point to a problem with her argument?
