Moyers & Company: Hurricanes, Capitalism & Democracy

Naomi Klein explains how Hurricane Sandy can spur economic and political transformation in America. Friday at 9 p.m. on PBS 6.

Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, but Naomi Klein says that the tragic destruction can also be the catalyst for the transformation of politics and our economy. The author of the international bestseller The Shock Doctrine joins Bill to discuss hurricanes, climate change, and democracy. Klein has been in New York visiting the devastated areas -- including those where “Occupy Sandy” volunteers are unfolding new models of relief -- as part of her reporting for a new book and film on climate change and the future.

In the same broadcast, former Federal Election Commission Chairman Trevor Potter -- the lawyer who advised Stephen Colbert on setting up a super PAC -- dissects the spending on the most expensive election in American history. Many voices are claiming “money didn’t matter, Citizens United wasn’t a factor,” but Potter disagrees.
