Bestselling author and prize-winning economist Ha-Joon Chang, will give a talk on his recently published book Economics: The User’s Guide. With wit and insight, the book introduces a wide range of economic theories, addressing questions such as: What is economics? What can and can’t it explain about the world? Why does it matter?

In this talk, Chang will provide a clear, comprehensive guide to understanding the controversial science and its implications in our everyday lives. He will offer an engaging view of the global economy, representing the best of economic theory and analysis, but also accessible to the general public.

Ha-Joon Chang teaches economics at Cambridge University. His books include the international bestseller Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism, Kicking Away the Ladder, and 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism. In 2005, GDAE awarded him the Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought.
