Description


The acclaimed Ha-Joon Chang is a voice of sanity and wit in this lighthearted audiobook 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 listeners 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.
