The myth of a-social "Free" markets exposed in new book by Cambridge University economist Ha-joon Chang

"Free-market economists have told  us that active (or intrusive, as they put it) governments are bad for economic growth. However, contrary to common perception virtually all of today's rich countries used government intervention to  get rich..." p.261 in Chang's 2010 book "23 Things  They Don't Tell  You About Capitalism". More about Chang's contrarian and witty (a witty economist!) book along with our other social  economy news will follow soon in the first TorontotheBetter Bulletin of 2016. Like all books referenced in this space Chang's book  is available for purchase from TorontotheBetter at a discounted price. And we are unionized too, unlike the obese Amazon.
