Reviews

A masterful debunking of some of the myths of capitalism ... Witty, iconoclastic and uncommonly commonsensical ... this book will be invaluable * Observer * Important .. persuasive . [an] engaging case for a more cautious and caring era of globalisation * Financial Times * Myth-busting and nicely-written . the best economists are those who look around at our man-made world and ask themselves "why?". Chang is one * Independent * In 23 lucid, sometimes breezily didactic chapters, Chang takes apart the stricken ideology of neoliberalism. Chang's method is not to engage with the neoliberals but to knock them down with assertions. -- Paul Mason, Economics Editor, BBC Newsnight * Guardian * Ha-Joon Chang is a formidable critic...and a true exponent of the art of political economy -- Michael Lind * Prospect * Chang's...iconoclastic attitude has won him fans such as Bob Geldof and Noam Chomsky. -- Rachel Shields * The Independent on Sunday * For anyone who wants to understand capitalism not as economists or politicians have pictured it, but as it actually operates, this book will be invaluable. -- John Gray * Observer *
