How Rich Countries Got Rich And Why Poor Countries Stay Poor
Global √łkonomi

In this refreshingly revisionist history, Erik S. Reinert shows how rich countries developed through a combination of government intervention, protectionism, and strategic investment, rather than through free trade. Yet when our leaders lecture poor countries on the right path to riches, they do so in almost perfect ignorance of the fact that our economies were founded on protectionism long before they could afford the luxury of free trade.
