  • Is Japan running out of husbands?
  • Is China running out of wives?
  • Did Genghis Khan really invent free trade? And
  • Why can’t you see the price of a Big Mac at McDonalds in Argentina?

In Trading Places, Tim Harcourt – also known as the Airport Economist – takes you around the globe, talking to businesses, governments, union officials, NGOs and others in the community to understand what makes
each economy tick. He reveals where the opportunities are, identifies the risks, and provides insider tips on doing business in each destination.

Like The Airport Economist, a bestseller in several languages, Trading Places is essential reading for business travellers, students of economics or business, and anyone who wants to understand the complexities
of our modern globalised world.

If you’d like the answer to these questions and inside tips on how to do business globally then my new book Trading Places – The Airport Economist’s guide to International Business  is just for you!

Trading Places is available from all good bookstores - including airport bookstores - or at:
