Javier Blas and Jack Farchy

Todd Buchholz welcomes Bloomberg’s Javier Blas and Jack Farchy, Co-authors of ‘The World for Sale’, to SmarterMarkets™ for the latest installment in our series ‘An Emerging Energy Framework for the 22nd-Century’.

Javier Blas and Jack Farchy are two of the world’s best-known journalists covering energy, commodities and trading houses. They both work for Bloomberg News, where Blas is chief energy correspondent and Farchy is a senior reporter covering natural resources.

The World for Sale‘ is the story of how a handful of swashbuckling businessmen became indispensable cogs in global markets: enabling an enormous expansion in international trade, and connecting resource-rich countries – no matter how corrupt or war-torn – with the world’s financial centres.
