In 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.

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.
