Naomi Klein: "Shock Doctrine: Rise Of Disaster Capitalism"

At the core of disaster capitalism is the use of cataclysmic events to advance radical privatization combined with the privatization of the disaster response itself. Klein argues that by capitalizing on crises, created by nature or war, the disaster capitalism complex now exists as a booming new economy, and is the violent culmination of a radical economic project that has been incubating for fifty years.

Nothing changed when Obama came to office because he is just another puppet of the same corporations.
