This book will turn every piece of received economic wisdom you've heard on its head. It reveals the truth behind what 'they' tell you and shows how the system really works, including: There's no such thing as a 'free' market. Globalization isn't making the world richer. We don't live in a digital world - the washing machine has changed lives more than the Internet. Poor countries are more entrepreneurial than rich ones. Higher paid managers don't produce better results.

This galvanizing, fact-packed book about money, equality, freedom and greed proves that the free market isn't just bad for people - it's an inefficient way of running economies too. Here Chang lays out the alternatives, and shows there's a better way.
