23 cosas que no te cuentan sobre el capitalismo

by Ha-Joon Chang

¿Cómo no vimos venir el colapso económico en que nos hallamos? Ha-Joon Chang tiene la respuesta: no preguntamos qué era lo que no nos contaban sobre el capitalismo. Este es un libro ameno con una intención muy seria, cuestionar las premisas que sostienen el dogma y la propaganda que la escuela dominante de economistas neoliberales ?los apóstoles del libre mercado ? ha lanzado desde los tiempos de Reagan.Chang, premiado autor de varios libros, es uno de los economistas más respetados del mundo, una voz de cordura e inteligencia en la tradición de John Kenneth Galbraith y Joseph Stiglitz. 23 cosas que no te cuentan sobre el capitalismo permite entender cómo funciona el capitalismo global? y cómo no lo hace. En ?Cómo reconstruir la economía mundial?, la conclusión final, Chang explica cómo podemos modelar el capitalismo para humanizarlo, en vez de convertirnos en esclavos del mercado."Una magistral refutación de algunos mitos del capitalismo. Ingenioso, heterodoxo y lleno de sentido común, este libro esimprescindible." (Observer )"Importante y convincente. Una clara argumentación en defensa de una etapa más cauta y preocupada por la gente."(Financial Times )"Chang, profesor de Economía en Cambridge, resulta inteligente y apasionado sin necesidad de subir los decibelios."?Time "Chang ofrece un iluminador resumen del pensamiento económico moderno, y de todos los casos en que no ha funcionado, animándonos a actuar para reconstruir por completo la economía mundial."?Publishers Weekly "Un libro esencial para todos los que quieran entender el capitalism no como lo cuentan los economistas o los políticos, sino como funciona en realidad."?John Gray"Un libro entretenido, accesible y provocador."?Sunday Times (UK)

23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

by Ha-Joon Chang

One of the world's most respected economists and author of the international bestseller "Bad Samaritans" equips readers with an understanding of how global capitalism works--and doesn't.

Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism

by Ha-Joon Chang

[From the book jacket] With irreverent wit, an engagingly personal style, and a battery of real-life examples, Ha-Joon Chang blasts holes in the "World Is Flat" orthodoxy of Thomas Friedman and other neo-liberal economists who argue that only unfettered capitalism and wide-open international trade can lift struggling nations out of poverty. On the contrary, Chang shows, today's economic superpowers-from the United States to Britain to his native South Korea-all attained prosperity by shameless protectionism and government intervention in industry. We in the wealthy nations have conveniently forgotten this fact, telling ourselves a fairy tale about the magic of free trade and-via our proxies such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization-ramming policies that suit ourselves down the throat of the developing world. Unlike typical economists who construct models of how economies are supposed to behave, Chang examines the past: what has actually happened. His pungently contrarian history demolishes one pillar after another of free-market mythology. We treat patents and copyrights as sacrosanct-but developed our own industries by studiously copying others' technologies. We insist that centrally planned economies stifle growth-but many developing countries had higher GDP growth before they were pressured into deregulating their economies.
