The Shock Decade: Abe and Joe look at the 10 years of post-Sept. 11 chaos and exploitation.

The Shock Doctrine: Author Naomi Klein's explanation of capitalism's use of disasters -- and the numb shock that accompanies them -- to carry out radical "free market" revisions. From Afghanistan to Iraq, from Guantanamo to the PATRIOT Act, from Katrina to the financial crisis of 2008, the post-Sept. 11 world has been one big application of the Shock Doctrine. Abe and Joe survey the wreckage.
