Ha-Joon Chang: Trickle Down

Ha-Joon is a Professor at The University of Cambridge Economics Department and leading heterodox economists specialising in development economics.

He is also a consultant at The World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and the European Investment Bank as well as to Oxfam and various United Nations agencies.

He has written 13 books and his latest 2, which we recommend are worth the read are:

Bad Samaritans: The Guilty Secrets of Rich Nations and the Threat to Global Prosperity – This book was endorsed by a number of commentators across the political spectrum – from Noam Chomsky on the left to Martin Wolf on the right. The book deals with a range of rather serious issues related to economic development – trade policy, intellectual property rights, regulation of foreign investment, privatization, democracy, corruption, and culture. However, in order to make these issues accessible to lay readers, I engage the services of Monty Python, The Full Monty, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Tom Cruise, Mother Teresa, my daughter Yuna, my son Jin-Gyu, and an elephant.

23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism – Bloomsbury USA, describes, it is a ‘lighthearted book with serious purpose’. Not to be outdone by “Bad Samaritans” in terms of its entertainment value, “23 things” employs his son Jin-Gyu (again), the ‘Dead Presidents’ on the dollar bills, Walt Disney’s Rescuers, an Indian bus driver named Ram, and sheep-burning French farmers.
