Cambridge University economist Ha-Joon Chang visited Google’s Cambridge, MA office to discuss his new book, “Economics: The User’s Guide”.
In his bestselling 23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism, Dr. Chang debunked many of the predominant myths of neoclassical economics. Now, in an entertaining and accessible primer, he explains how the global economy actually works—in real-world terms. Writing with irreverent wit, a deep knowledge of history, and a disregard for conventional economic pieties, he offers insights that will never be found in textbooks.
Ha-Joon Chang teaches in the Faculty of Economics at Cambridge University. His books include the international bestseller “Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism”, “Kicking Away the Ladder”, winner of the 2003 Myrdal Prize, and “23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism”. In 2005, Chang was awarded the Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought.
