The next meeting of the Cheltenham Labour Party Book Club is Tues 29 May. The book for discussion is 23 Things you Didn't Know about Capitalism, by Ha-Joon Chang, chapter 6 onwards. As always, if you don't have time to read it all but are interested, do come and join in.

The last monthly Book Club meeting discussed the first 5 chapters of the same book. Ha-Joon Chang is a Cambridge academic. It is a real eye opener about currently prevailing prejudices and views on 23 economic 'things' - the false idea of a Free Market, exaggeration of the Internet's significance, income disparity, myth of welfare overspend - and about 20 other things! It is a very interesting read and great for discussion. It also seems very much in line with current Labour thinking on the economy. Strongly recommended for Labour members - or anyone interested in finance and economics.
