The Adventure Capitalist Summary


The Adventure Capitalist: Camels, carpets and coffee: how face-to-face trade is the new economics by Conor Woodman

Economist Conor Woodman has decided to test his negotiating skills, charm and eye for a bargain against some of the world's oldest trading cultures. He's sold his house to finance the trip, but if his hunches are right - trading Sudanese camels for Zambian coffee, coffee for South African red wine and then off to China to buy jade with the proceeds - he'll return six months later with a lot of money, some new tricks and a whole raft of brilliant tall tales.



The Adventure Capitalist offers an exciting insight into the human story behind the money in our pockets, and reminds us that making a living is about exactly that - living.
