Review:

Chang presents an enlightening précis of modern economic thought-and all the places it's gone wrong, urging us to act in order to completely rebuild the world economy: "This will [make] some readers uncomfortable...it is time to get uncomfortable (Publishers Weekly)

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)

Myth-busting and nicely-written collection of essays (Independent, UK)

Shaking Economics 101 assumptions to the core ... Eminently accessible, with a clearly liberal (or at least anticonservative) bent, but with surprises along the way-for one, the thought that markets need to become less rather than more efficient. (Kirkus Reviews)

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 (John Gray Observer, UK)

A lively, accessible and provocative book (Sunday Times, UK)

For 40 years, I have worked as a journalist and trained thousands of other journalists from my former perches as a University of Missouri Journalism School professor and as executive director of Investigative Reporters and Editors. I have written newspaper articles, magazine features and entire books with heavy doses of economics policy and business behaviour. I wish the book 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism had been available when I was a rookie; I would have been more alert to the hands-off-business catechism by which Americans are relentlessly indoctrinated. (Steven Weinberg Remapping Debate)

I doubt there is one book, written in response to the current economic crisis, that is as fun or easy to read as Ha-Joon Chang's 23 Things They Don't Tell you About Capitalism. (Don Hazen, Executive Editor AlterNet)

Book Description:

One of today's most iconoclastic thinkers destroys the biggest myths about the world we live in.
