Description


Thing 1: There is no such thing as a free market. Thing 4: The washing machine has changed the world more than the internet has. Thing 13: Making rich people richer doesn't make the rest of us richer. This lighthearted book has a serious purpose: to lay bare the assumptions behind today's dominant economic dogma. As the acclaimed economist Ha-Joon Chang shows us with crisp, ironic wit, all economic choices are also political ones, and it's time for us to be honest about them. 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism reveals how global capitalism works?and doesn?t. Where economics is dry, this Cambridge professor delights in paradox. And myth-busting?because what Chang does in 23 Things is take apart many of the assertions put forward by those who argue that economics is nothing more than letting markets rip.? ? Guardian (UK) A lively, accessible and provocative book.? - David Smith, Sunday Times (UK) Shak es] Economics 101 assumptions to the core.? ? Kirkus Reviews
