Summary
A guided tour of markets with examples ranging from a camel trading fair in India to the $20 million per day Aalsmeer flower market to the global trade in AIDS drugs. Shows how these markets combine to form the global economy and why markets are neither magical nor immoral, but imperfect yet vitally important tools. [book cover]
