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

I finished this a few days ago, but I was a bit slow updating here. I will say right away that this is a book that I would strongly recommend to almost anyone. Chang looks at capitalism via, well, 23 things that the powers that be, namely free market capitalists, conveniently fail to tell you. It is...
