The acclaimed Ha-Joon Chang is a voice of sanity-and wit-in this lighthearted book with a serious purpose: to question the assumptions behind the dogma and sheer hype that the dominant school of neoliberal economists have spun since the Age of Reagan." 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism" uses twenty-three short essays (a few great examples: ""There Is No Such Thing as a Free Market,"" ""The Washing Machine Has Changed the World More than the Internet Has"") to equip readers with an understanding of how global capitalism works, and doesn't, while offering a vision of how we can shape capitalism to humane ends, instead of becoming slaves of the market.
Praise for" 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism"
"A lively, accessible and provocative book."-"Sunday Times" (UK )
"Chang, befitting his position as an economics professor at Cambridge University, is engagingly thoughtful and opinionated at a much lower decibel level. 'The "truths" peddled by free-market ideologues are based on lazy assumptions and blinkered visions, ' he charges."-"Time"

Important .. persuasive . [an] engaging case for a more cautious and caring era of globalisation
Myth-busting and nicely-written . the best economists are those who look around at our man-made world and ask themselves "why?". Chang is one
In 23 lucid, sometimes breezily didactic chapters, Chang takes apart the stricken ideology of neoliberalism. Chang's method is not to engage with the neoliberals but to knock them down with assertions.
Ha-Joon Chang is a formidable critic...and a true exponent of the art of political economy
Chang's...iconoclastic attitude has won him fans such as Bob Geldof and Noam Chomsky.
For anyone who wants to understand capitalism not as economists or politicians have pictured it, but as it actually operates, this book will be invaluable.
