I'm sorry I missed the live bit of the webcast but the link is still a good one.
 
Re: Around the world in 80 trades by Spursfan on 10 April 2009 9:20am
 
Caught the last 15 mins of this last night.

The basis is (I think) is that an ex-City trader goes from country to country selling some sort of commodity from Country A to country B.

As that last para is a little confusing (!) as an example he was trying to sell coffee in South Africa last night (not sure where he had bought it) and bought a hot chilli sauce there. He will be trying to sell it in India next week etc etc.

This explains it far better:

Looking forward to the next episode!!
