— The Erimtan Angle —

Talk by Naomi Klein author of This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate given September 28, 2014 at Town Hall Seattle (Washington, U.S.A.).

Klein appears to have taken the following Milton Friedman quote as her starting point to argue that capitalism is really the root of all evil in the world today: “Only a crisis–actual or perceived-produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around”.[1]
