  • A masterful debunking of some of the myths of capitalism ... Witty, iconoclastic and uncommonly commonsensical ... this book will be invaluable

    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.
