Coronavirus Capitalism w/ Naomi Klein

Climate 2020

Government & Organization

Naomi Klein has had a long career as a journalist. Time and time again, she's seen capitalists take advantage of crises. She saw it when she was a reporter in Iraq, and noticed it again while reporting on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Now, she's seeing the agents of capitalism rush in to profit off of the Coronavirus pandemic. Our hosts spoke with Naomi about how global "shocks" to the economy are giving the fossil fuel industry big policy wins, and what that means for the battle to reduce emissions going forward. She also comments on Biden's potential policy shift to the left ahead of the general election, and a new documentary that has sparked outrage in the climate community.
