Críticas:

"A smart, lively, and provocative book that offers us compelling new ways of looking at globalization." --Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel laureate in economics, 2001


"I recommend this book to people who have any interest in these issues--i.e. everyone." --Bob Geldof


"Every orthodoxy needs effective critics. Ha-Joon Chang is probably the world's most effective critic of globalization. He does not deny the benefits to developing countries of integration into the world economy. But he draws on the lessons of history to argue that they must be allowed to integrate on their own terms."--Martin Wolf, "Financial Times," author of "Why Globalization Works


""This is a marvelous book. Well researched, panoramic in its scope and beautifully written, "Bad Samaritans" is the perfect riposte to devotees of a one-size-fits-all model of growth and globalisation. I strongly urge you to read it."--Larry Elliott, economics editor, the "Guardian"
"Lucid, deeply informed, and enlivened with striking illustrations, this penetrating study could be entitled "economics in the real world." Chang reveals the yawning gap between standard doctrines concerning economic development and what really has taken place from the origins of the industrial revolution until today. His incisive analysis shows how, and why, prescriptions based on reigning doctrines have caused severe harm, particularly to the most vulnerable and defenseless, and are likely to continue to do so. He goes on to provide sensible and constructive proposals, solidly based on economic theory and historical evidence, as to how the global economy could be redesigned to proceed on a far more humane and civilized course. And his warningsof what might happen if corrective action is not taken are grim and apt."- Noam Chomsky
"the best riposte from the critics that I have seen...Readers who are leery of open-market orthodoxy will rejoice at the cogency of Bad Samaritans. Ha-Joon Chang has the credentials -- he's on the economics faculty at Cambridge University -- and the storytelling skill to make a well-informed, engaging case against the dogma propagated by globalization's cheerleaders. Believers in free trade will find that the book forces them to recalibrate and maybe even backpedal a bit....Chang's book deserves a wide readership for illuminating the need for humility about the virtues of private markets and free trade, especially in the developing world."--Paul Blustein, "Washington"" Post"
"a lively addition to the protectionist side of the debate...well written and far more serious than most anti-globalization gibberish.""-- New York Sun"

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Bad Samaritans was an introduction to open-minded economists and political free-thinkers to Ha-Joon Chang s theories of the dangers of free-trade. With irreverent wit, an engagingly personal style, and a keen grasp of history, Chang blasts holes in the World Is Flat orthodoxy of Thomas Friedman and others who argue that only unfettered capitalism and wide-open international trade can lift struggling nations out of poverty. On the contrary, Chang shows, today s economic superpowers-from the U.S. to Britain to his native Korea-all attained prosperity by shameless protectionism and government intervention in industry, a fact conveniently forgotten now that they want to compete in foreign markets. Chang s cage-rattling, contrarian history of global capital appeals to readers new to economic theory as well as members of the old school looking for a fresh take.
