Thank You, Jonathan Chait

For providing a rigorous, detailed, and unambiguous rebuke of Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine. It was a truly abysmal book, riddled with logical and factual errors. Written by the simple-minded, for the simple-minded. It was disappointing that Joe Stiglitz soft-pedaled his review in the NYT. I'm glad at least one prominent liberal publication exposed it as the intellectually bankrupt work that it is.

Don't thank him until you've read Naomi's response (I received it by email, but it is probably posted on her website). She basically rips apart all his arguments.
