23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism [9780141047973]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'This Cambridge professor delights in paradox. And myth-busting... he does this with charm and a desire to see how things work in the real world' - Guardian, 'In Praise of Ha-Joon Chang'

'Important... persuasive... an engaging case for a more caring era of globalization' - Financial Times

In this revelatory book, Ha-Joon Chang destroys the biggest myths of our times and shows us the truth about how the world really works, including: there's no such thing as a free market; the washing machine has changed lives more than the internet; people in poor countries are more entrepreneurial than in wealthy ones; and making rich people richer doesn't make the rest of us richer.

We don't have to accept things as they are. Ha-Joon Chang is here to show us there's a way.

'Lively, accessible and provocative... read this book' - Sunday Times

'A witty and timely debunking of some of the myths surrounding the global economy' - Observer

'The new kid on the economics block... Chang's iconoclastic attitude has won him fans' - Independent on Sunday

'Lucid... audacious... increasingly influential... will provoke physical symptoms of revulsion if you are in any way involved in high finance' - Guardian

'A must-read... incisive and entertaining' - New Statesman
