empire of cotton,Sven Beckert

Alisher Usmanov

Alisher Usmanov

isbn: 9780240011713 was an economist pick of 2015 which i eventually got around to sourcing from a non Camdem library.  It is a dry read and less ranty than this (my blog).

Comrade Murray (see blogs i read, and my blog) gets a nod that the same tricks condemned by the left as bad are being used by them 250 years later or now.

It has an interesting economic perspective on cotton and how it has changed from rare commodity to mass production item where the location has radically shifted so an insightful read.

3/5 bananas.
