La doctrina del shock, (in English "The Shock Doctrine"), is a documentary film released in 2009, based on the homonymous book by Naomi Klein, directed by Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross.
It deals with the radical theories of Milton Friedman, a professor at the University of Chicago, and his school of economics, ("the Chicago Boys"), and gives examples of their implementation in countries as diverse as Augusto Pinochet's Chile, the Yeltsin's Russia, Thatcher's Britain and, more recently, Afghanistan and Iraq. "The Shock Doctrine" explains Friedman's ideology, so unpopular that it can only be imposed through torture and repression, and whose central idea is to take advantage of crises, natural disasters, war and the need for a "dangerous enemy" , to prepare the ground with which to break the will of some societies that, reached that state of shock, renounce values ​​that they would otherwise defend with integrity, giving way to the looting of public interests and the implementation of reforms for the benefit of the large corporations, in what they dare to call "Free Market".
