The World for Sale

Money, Power, and the Traders Who Barter the Earth's Resources

Javier Blas, Jack Farchy

The World for Sale takes readers inside the secretive and powerful world of commodity trading, where traders buy, sell, and hoard the earth's resources, no matter how corrupt or war-torn the source. With fascinating stories of their political power and influence, this eye-opening read is a guiding tour through the wildest frontiers of the global economy, and a revelatory guide to how capitalism really works.

If you’re unfamiliar with @JavierBlas, he’s an absolute must follow. His book on how global commodity markets work (and don’t) is the best thing I’ve read on politics and energy in many years. 👇👇👇👇      source
Hugely enjoying “The World For Sale”, as good a business non-fiction book as it gets, would put it in “Hard Landing” category for those who know that. Great reporting & writing by @JavierBlas & @jfarchy.      source
