Synopsis

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.



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

'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



'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
