From fair trade to unfair trade- why the world's poor continue to lose out in the global market - and what can be done about it.
Conor Woodman is an economist, author and presenter. His first book Around the World in 80 Trades: The Adventure Capitalist and the accompanying four-part television series for Channel 4 tell the story of how he left his job, sold his London flat and embarked on a round-the-world trading adventure. Travelling through four continents in five months, he turned his hand to making a profit out of everything from camels in Sudan to inflatable surfboards in Mexico, to discover how real people make real money in real markets.

"Conor Woodman's Unfair Trade is proof that economics can be both
vivid and accessible. By rootling through the developing world's
sweatshops, plantations and mines he explores whether Big Business
can also be Ethical Business. Read this book and you will never
look at the goods in a high street shop window in quite the same
way" -- Tim Butcher
"Conor Woodman takes the dismal out of the dismal science. He's written an alternative travel guide to the global economy" -- Liam Halligan * Sunday Telegraph *
"Many books denounce rapacious Western corporations, but few combine - as Woodman's does - first-hand global reportage with practical advice on change. From Congo to China, and from chocolate to cotton, he seeks commerce with a conscience" * i, Independent *
"Conor Woodman's bold new book reminds us of the basic questions that every right-thinking consumer ought to ask ... as a work of journalistic reportage, this book scores very highly" * Geographical *
