LSE Lecture: Economics, But Not as You Know It - Ha-Joon Chang

In Economics: The User's Guide|, which he will talk about in this public lecture, bestselling author Ha-Joon Chang explains how the global economy works, and why anyone can understand the dismal science. Unlike many economists who claim there is only one way of 'doing economics', he introduces readers to a wide range of economic theories, from classical to Keynesian to institutionalist to Austrian, revealing how they all have their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots. By challenging the received wisdom, and exposing the myriad forces that shape our economic life, Chang provides the tools that every responsible citizen needs to understand - and address - our current economic woes.
Ha-Joon Chang teaches economics at Cambridge University. His book 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism was a no.1 bestseller and was called by the Observer 'a witty and timely debunking of some of the biggest myths surrounding the global economy.' He is a popular columnist at the Guardian, and a vocal critic of the failures of our economic system.
