Description

Ha-Joon Chang's 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism turns received economic wisdom on its head to show you how the world really works.

In this revelatory book, Ha-Joon Chang destroys the biggest myths of our times and shows us an alternative view of the world, including:

 

  • There's no such thing as a 'free' market
  • Globalization isn't making the world richer
  • We don't live in a digital world - the washing machine has changed lives more than the internet
  • Poor countries are more entrepreneurial than rich ones
  • Higher paid managers don't produce better results

 

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

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

- Guardian


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


"A must-read ... incisive and entertaining" 
  - New Statesman Books of the Year
