Mr. Sorman taught economics at the Paris Institute of Political Sciences from 1970 to 2000.

The Western press these days is full of stories on China’s arrival as a superpower, some even warning that the future may belong to her. But as Guy Sorman reveals in Empire of Lies China’s success is, at least in part, a mirage.
In the 20th century, privatization and market capitalism have reconstructed Eastern Europe and lifted 800 million people – in China, Brazil, and India – out of poverty. In Economics Does Not Lie, Guy Sorman reveals that behind this unprecedented growth is not only the collapse of state socialism but also a scientific revolution in economics.
