NO.1 BEST BUY A SPLENDID EXCHANGE: HOW TRADE SHAPED THE WORLD PRICE REVIEW UK
A Splendid Exchange tells the epic story of global commerce, from its prehistoric origins towards the myriad crises confronting it today. It travels from the sugar rush this brought the British to Jamaica in the seventeenth century to our current debates over globalization, from the silk route in between China and Rome in the 2nd century towards the rise and fall of the Portuguese monopoly in spices in the sixteenth. All through, William Bernstein examines how our age-old dependency on trade has contributed to our planet’s agricultural bounty, stimulated well informed and industrial progress and made us both prosperous and weak.
