23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

Chang, Ha-Joon More by this author...£9.99

'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 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 any longer. Ha-Joon Chang is here to show us there's a better way.

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

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