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.
