Praise for" 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism"

"A lively, accessible and provocative book."-"Sunday Times" (UK )

"Chang, befitting his position as an economics professor at Cambridge University, is engagingly thoughtful and opinionated at a much lower decibel level. 'The "truths" peddled by free-market ideologues are based on lazy assumptions and blinkered visions, ' he charges."-"Time"
