23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism
- By: Ha-Joon Chang
- Narrated by: Joe Barrett
- Length: 8 hrs and 58 mins
If you've wondered how we did not see the economic collapse coming, Ha-Joon Chang knows the answer: We didn't ask what they didn't tell us about capitalism. This is a lighthearted book with a serious purpose: to question the assumptions behind the dogma and sheer hype that the dominant school of neoliberal economists-the apostles of the freemarket-have spun since the Age of Reagan.
Interesting but complicated

It was a privilage to listen to this book
It is amazing how one book can summerize what has gone wrong with a global
economy in the past few decades.
It’s a must read for all the CEOs and CFOs and respective government officials all over the world. And it would be great as a textbook in all highschools all over the globe.
I do not share the opinion of the author that the things can be still turned around as it seems like capitalism is on a downward spiral now. And will end up in revolution. And in spite people like Gates , Buffet or Zukeberg greed is covering the eyes of the remaining 1%.
Yet having said that I strongly believe that building an understanding of that is going on , is the only chance of at least slight improvement.
thank you again for this book.
