    Inhaltsangabe

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Meet the traders who supply the world with oil, metal and food - no matter how corrupt, war-torn or famine-stricken the source.

    The modern world is built on commodities - from the oil that fuels our cars to the metals that power our smartphones. 

    We rarely stop to consider where they come from. But we should.

    In The World for Sale, two leading journalists lift the lid on one of the least scrutinised corners of the economy: the workings of the billionaire commodity traders who buy, hoard and sell the earth's resources. 

    It is the story of how a handful of swashbuckling businessmen became indispensable cogs in global markets: enabling an enormous expansion in international trade and connecting resource-rich countries - no matter how corrupt or war-torn - with the world's financial centres.

    And it is the story of how some traders acquired untold political power, right under the noses of Western regulators and politicians - helping Saddam Hussein to sell his oil, fuelling the Libyan rebel army during the Arab Spring and funnelling cash to Vladimir Putin's Kremlin in spite of strict sanctions.

    The result is an eye-opening tour through the wildest frontiers of the global economy, as well as a revelatory guide to how capitalism really works. 

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "The definitive, eye-opening story of the most powerful and secretive traders in the world." (Bradley Hope, co-author of Billion Dollar Whale)

    "Blas and Farchy shine light on what's long been the financial markets' darkest corner - the crucial, yet underappreciated, role commodity traders play in global finance and geopolitics.... The World for Sale is a fascinating, eye-opening read." (Gregory Zuckerman, author of The Man Who Solved the Market)

    "Javier Blas and Jack Farchy deftly peel back the curtain on the amoral swashbucklers of capitalism who trade in commodities.... The World for Sale is a gripping account of how they achieved their stranglehold over the world economy, and their troubling influence on global politics." (Brad Stone, author of The Everything Store)

    Well-researched book that tells the story of commodity traders and their impact on world politics since WWII in a highly engaging style.

    Chronology, numbers and connections are missing.

    Maybe in the written book you find a lot of data in charts and graphs. Here it's missing and the narrator isn't able to make all connections clear to the listener. Moreover the repercussions of the traders actions are not reflected in an educated way. Moreover technical insights on how to be able to conclude a deal are missing. That a few parties agreed on sth and so they did and made a lot of profit is just not enough to be interesting or revealing. Real insights are missing.
