This book is interesting in a historical way. It describes the creation of the big trading companies operating in the grain 🌾🌾markets known as the ABCD. A => ADM // B=> BUNGE // C=> CARGILL // D => LOUIS DREYFUS, (back then, we had 2 Cs with Continental and A was André). I like the stories behind the families who build those businesses.
I’m not really sure if the book is still relevant, as the market has complete shifted with the emergence of the Asian players 🐲( Cofco, Olam, Willmar,etc…) Furthermore, I found the book a bit boring 😴and not really entertaining, so quite hard to finish frankly.
I would recommend the book if you are interested in the history. But definitely not a must-read.
Grade 3/6 🤔
