Professor Ha-Joon Chang talked about his book, Bad Samaritans:The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism. He argued against unregulated international trade. He contended that the gross domestic product (GDP) of many developing countries was higher prior to deregulation and that the pressure of countries such as the United States and Britain to follow this model is false since these countries built their economies with the assistance of government intervention. He responded to audience members' questions.

Ha-Joon Chang is a faculty member in Economics at the University of Cambridge. Mr. Chang has been a consultant for several organizations, including the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank and the United Nations. Ha-Joon Chang is the author of numerous books, including Kicking Away the Ladder: Development Strategy in Historical Perspective. close
