Naomi Klein

A couple of weekends ago, I was treated to an interview on the CBC With Naomi Klein, discussing her latest book, which seems to blame Milton Friedman for a whole pile of stuff. She has a great charm, and this was only radio - TV helps her even more, but she is not a coherent speaker - vague and disconnected is how it seemed to me and this was with an interviewer who was simply throwing softballs at her.

I've read several reviews since then of the book (I can think of no reason to read the book myself - I am struggling with Samuel Bowles' Microeconomics, which it seems to me might have value), and by far the best is the summary is from Tyler Cowen, who confesses to liking her book!
