23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

by Ha-Joon Chang
£9.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2011)

23 Things They Don In 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism one of today's most iconoclastic thinkers destroys the biggest myths about the world we live in.
 
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
 
This galvanizing, fact-packed book about money, equality, freedom and greed proves that the free market isn't just bad for people - it's an inefficient way of running economies too. Here Chang lays out the alternatives, and shows there's a better way.
