23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

One of my Christmas presents this year, is this cheeky book...

23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism, by Ha Joon Chang. The person with the audacity to give it to me is my Dad, who saw someone reading it on the train in London and that made him think of me. Bless. It wasn't mean spirited though, he said it would be good to add another perspective, and food for thought nonetheless.

I will endeavor to read it this summer, even though I'm not much of a reader. Hopefully it will add a little something, maybe a more pragmatic and practical edge to these posts. I doubt it will make me a socialist though, I'm highly open to new ideas and I'm aware capitalism isn't perfect, but other systems are certainly less so.

I've barely started though, I have a book by David Seymour to get through, and an Edward de Bono that I'm still finishing. Maybe I'll post about it again when I'm finished!

  1. Cheeky Monkey :-) ..hope you do get to read the book and learn a new perspective, you always need to understand opposing views even if you may not agree with them



Thanks for commenting and joining the discussion! Remember to keep the language classy, and I'm a stickler for grammar :P
