Two Bloomberg News journalists have signed a contract to write a book about commodities trading.
Javier Blas and Jack Farchy will write “The World for Sale,” which will be published by Random House Business Books in Europe and Oxford University Press in the United States and Canada.
“In The World for Sale, the pair will draw on an extraordinary network of contacts to reveal precisely how traders make a living. They will travel the globe – from the battlefields of Libya, to the cobalt mines of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the corn fields of the American Midwest – to uncover the economic impact of commodity trading,” said Random House in a statement.
Blas is chief energy correspondent for Bloomberg and is based in London. He previously was commodities editor at the Financial Times.
Farchy is a senior reporter covering energy and commodities for Bloomberg and is also based in London. He also previously worked at the FT as a commodities markets reporter.
