[EPUB] ✶ 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism ✻ Ha-Joon Chang – Tactical-player.co.uk

23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism We ve started reading this for our Talk Socialism reading group set up by members of Labour Momentum but open to anyone in York It really is excellent Well argued, accessible and entertaining I can also recommend the audio book. I ve always been a believer in market economics, though I ve mellowed in my beliefs as I ve got a bit older I loved this book it s an easy read, yet it challenges conventional wisdom, suggesting that kinder understanding economic behaviours might not only be kinder, but also smarter if we can get over the short term focus so many of us have been brought up with from an early age. The I read of this the I think that economics is a belief system rather than a science Chang debunks just about everything to do with how things have been done for the last 25 years or so Makes you slightly miserable reading it, despite there being so much truth in it so I still haven t got to the end of it But well worth reading. Very interesting book Well written, I like the way it is divided into the 23 chapters and within the chapters into the what they tell you etc sections to keep the message very clear. Excellent.To summarise Ha Joon Chang, exposes the insincerities and double standards of the Washington Concenusus the economic dogma, in which it is asserted that free markets, liberalised trade and deregulation are simpatico with economic development What s often left out of the classical economic philosophy is the evidence to the contrary For example the USA is often held up as a paragon of free market efficiency and growth However it s early economic development see Land Of Promise economic history of the US was founded on three interlocking interventionist policies 1 High tariffs to protect their infant industries until they were efficient and productive enough to compete globally2 Noncompliance with foreign patents enabling their researchers, inventors and manufacturers to develope industries and companies without the additional costs associated with paying patentees for their discoveries.3 Large scale publicly funded infrastructure widening their domestic markets and enabling the development of an interconnected economy.These policies were in turn developed by observing the UKs policy of protecting infant industries with tariffs and only removing them once they were assured of the superiority of their products.Thus by analogy the western developed economies built in no small measure from the dirigiste policies of the past insisting that the less developed world open up to superior products is like a tennis pro insisting on a game with a novice whilst insisting it s fair.Great book, good read and free of irksome, self gratifying economic jargon.
