23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism By Ha-Joon Chang AudioBook summary
If you’ve wondered how we did not see the economic collapse coming, Ha-Joon Chang knows the answer: We didn’t ask what they didn’t tell us about capitalism. This is a lighthearted book with a serious purpose: to question the assumptions behind the dogma and sheer hype that the dominant school of neoliberal economists – the apostles of the freemarket – have spun since the Age of Reagan.
Chang, the author of the international bestseller Bad Samaritans, is one of the world’s most respected economists, a voice of sanity – and wit – in the tradition of John Kenneth Galbraith and Joseph Stiglitz. 23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism equips listeners with an understanding of how global capitalism works – and doesn’t. In his final chapter, “How to Rebuild the World,” Chang offers a vision of how we can shape capitalism to humane ends, instead of becoming slaves of the market.
