“Once you realize that trickle-down economics does not work, you will see the excessive tax cuts for the rich as what they are -- a simple upward redistribution of income, rather than a way to make all of us richer, as we were told.”
Ha-Joon Chang, 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

“Equality of opportunity is not enough. Unless we create an environment where everyone is guaranteed some minimum capabilities through some guarantee of minimum income, education, and healthcare, we cannot say that we have fair competition. When some people have to run a 100 metre race with sandbags on their legs, the fact that no one is allowed to have a head start does not make the race fair. Equality of opportunity is absolutely necessary but not sufficient in building a genuinely fair and efficient society.”
Ha-Joon Chang, 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

“People 'over-produce' pollution because they are not paying for the costs of dealing with it.”
Ha-Joon Chang, 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism
