    How is it that our favourite brands can import billions of pounds' worth of goods from the developing world every year, and yet leave the people who produce them barely scraping a living? In Unfair Trade Conor Woodman travels across the world, tracing a range of products back to their source to uncover who precisely is benefitting and who is losing out. In the process, he tests accepted economic wisdom on the best way to create a fairer world - and suggests a simpler but potentially far more radical solution.

    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 friends, and a whole raft of brilliant tall tales. Whether trading teak or tea, surfboards or seafood, Conor Woodman goes head-to-head with the best operators in the world's most hotly contested markets.
