Unfair Trade: The shocking truth behind 'ethical' business
In Unfair Trade Conor Woodman travels the world- from Nicaragua to the Congo and from Laos to Afghanistan - to establish the truth. In the course of his journeys he uncovers some truly shocking stories about the way big business operates, but he also sees a way forward that could reconcile the apparently irreconcilable.
"Conor Woodman's Unfair Trade is proof that economics can be both vivid and accessible. By rootling through the developing world's sweatshops, plantations and mines he explores whether Big Business can also be Ethical Business. Read this book and you will never look at the goods in a high street shop window in quite the same way" (Tim Butcher)"Conor Woodman takes the dismal out of the dismal science. He's written an alternative travel guide to the global economy" (Liam Halligan Sunday Telegraph)"Many books denounce rapacious Western corporations, but few combine - as Woodman's does - first-hand global reportage with practical advice on change. From Congo to China, and from chocolate to cotton, he seeks commerce with a conscience" (i, Independent)"Conor Woodman's bold new book reminds us of the basic questions that every right-thinking consumer ought to ask ... as a work of journalistic reportage, this book scores very highly" (Geographical)"Woodman offers (an) alternative and compelling world view" (Business Destinations)
