«Das beste Sachbuch des Jahres.» TIME Die Entdeckung Amerikas war für das Leben auf unserem Planeten das folgenreichste Ereignis seit dem Aussterben der Dinosaurier. Denn: Millionen Jahre waren die Hemisphären weitgehend voneinander isoliert gewesen. Mit Kolumbus traten sie in einen Austausch. Menschen und Pflanzen, Tiere und Krankheiten gelangten per Schiff in neue Lebensräume und schufen eine Welt, in der nichts blieb, wie es einmal gewesen war. Das hatte auch gravierende politische Konsequenzen: Der «kolumbische Austausch» trug mehr als alles andere dazu bei, dass Europa zur Weltmacht aufstieg und China verdrängte. Charles C. Mann zeichnet ein spannendes Panorama dieser Vorgänge, das Kontinente und Jahrhunderte umfasst. Ein großartiges Lesevergnügen für alle Wissensdurstigen! «Herausragend.» The New York Times «Ein faszinierendes und vielschichtiges Buch, das auf vorbildliche Weise sprechende Fakten mit gutem Geschichtenerzählen vereint.» The Washington Post

Provokantes Debattenbuch über den Kapitalismus vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Weltwirtschaftskrise Mit seiner provokanten Streitschrift macht Ha-Joon Chang Front gegen die heiligen Kühe des Kapitalismus. In dreiundzwanzig Thesen und Gegenthesen analysiert er die Grundzüge der Marktwirtschaft des 21. Jahrhunderts, sagt, was sie ist und was sie nicht ist, was sie kann und was sie nicht kann. Dabei verbindet er ökonomischen Sachverstand mit gesellschaftlichem Scharfblick und Menschenkenntnis. Knapp, präzise und streitbar bietet Ha-Joon Chang dem Leser das Rüstzeug, die herrschenden Illusionen einer kapitalistischen Ökonomie zu durchschauen, ihre Möglichkeiten realistisch einzuschätzen und zum Wohle aller zu nutzen. Stellt elementare Lehrmeinungen der freien Marktwirtschaft in Frage.
