Product description

Review

Leading economist [Ha-Joon Chang] has likened the nation's acceptance of free-market capitalism to that of the brainwashed characters in the film The Matrix, unwitting pawns in a fake reality. [Chang] debunks received wisdom on everything (Rachel Shields Independent)

A masterful debunking of some of the myths of capitalism ... Witty, iconoclastic and uncommonly commonsensical ... this book will be invaluable (John Gray Observer)

Lively and provocative book ... Read this book (David Smith Sunday Times)

Incisive and entertaining ... scathing about the conventional wisdom' (Robert Skidelsky New Statesman)

Important .. persuasive ... [an] engaging case for a more cautious and caring era of globalisation (James Crabtree Financial Times)

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 (Sean O'Grady Independent)

About the Author

Born in South Korea, Ha-Joon Chang is a specialist in development economics and Reader in the Political Economy of Development at the University of Cambridge. In 2005, Chang was awarded the Wassily Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought. He is author of Kicking Away the Ladder: Development Strategy in Historical Perspective (2002), which won the 2003 Gunnar Myrdal Prize, and Bad Samaritans: Rich Nations, Poor Policies and the Threat to the Developing World (2007).
