Ha-Joon Chang: The Fantasy of Free-Market Thinking
If you've wondered how we didn't see the economic collapse coming, economist and Cambridge Reader Ha-Joon Chang knows the answer: We didn't ask what they didn't tell us about capitalism. In the tradition of Joseph Stiglitz, Chang (author of the bestseller Bad Samaritans and the new 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism) questions the assumptions the "free market apostles" have spun since the Reagan era, and explains that efforts at unregulated trade have very rarely succeeded in producing economic development, and have a far worse record compared to interventionist policies. Presented by The Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
