"23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism", one of today's most
iconoclastic thinkers destroys the biggest myths about the world we live
in. It may have its flaws, but there's no real alternative to
free-market capitalism - ultimately it's making us all more prosperous.
The West is more efficient and financially savvy than the developing
world. And technology is the way forward for everyone. Right? Wrong.
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; and, 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.
