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. Discover the dark arts of haggling from the carpet merchants of Marrakech Learn what the ancient camel markets of Sudan can teach us about the current banking crisis Find out how to be a tough negotiator from the horse traders of central Asia
