23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

Ha-Joon Chang

Overview

Free-market economics is often praised as the only viable economical theory. By letting supply and demand govern our lives, free-market economics advocates minimal government involvement in the financial world. However, many assumptions of free-market economics are based on false ideas about the way society and the economy work. The good news is that there are other options.

Ha-Joon Chang has taught economics at the University of Cambridge and worked as a consultant for the World Bank. In this book, you'll learn all about the issues that can arise in a free-market society, and more importantly, how we can solve these issues to create a better world.
