it was amazing

Buying a pair of underpants in New Zealand, the author contemplates how they got from China to his store and can be sold for $2.99 or even a 5 pack for $4.37. He sets out to trace the journey of his underpants; he visits factories in China, the huge port in Shanghai, remote villages in the Uighar region tracking down all the steps involved. Part idiosyncratic travel log and part global economics, this is wholly fascinating and entirely readable.
