In this revelatory book, Ha-Joon Chang destroys the biggest myths of our times and shows us an alternative view of the world, 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; and we don’t have to accept things as they are any longer. Ha-Joon Chang is here to show us there’s a better way. “Lively, accessible and provocative …read this book”. (Sunday Times). “A witty and timely debunking of some of the biggest myths surrounding the global economy”.(“Observer”). “The new kid on the economics block…Chang’s iconoclastic attitude has won him fans”. (Independent on Sunday). “Lucid …audacious …increasingly influential …will provoke physical symptoms of revulsion if you are in any way involved in high finance”. (“Guardian”). “Important …persuasive …an engaging case for a more caring era of globalization”. (“Financial Times”). “A must-read …incisive and entertaining”. (“New Statesman Books of the Year”). Ha-Joon Chang is a Reader in the Political Economy of Development at the University of Cambridge.
