From the Publisher

By by Diane Abad Vergara, Illustrated by Ria van Rooyen

Let's take a journey with our children across the big, wide, deep blue sea! We will discover the delicious zapizapu and learn about the people that grow it. Then, as we follow zapizapu's journey as it crosses the sea we will learn what it means to others when we pay a fair price for the things we enjoy.

Zapizapu Crosses the Sea is a fascinating children's book. The script and colourful illustrations work together to simplify the concept of international trade and personify those involved around the world from grower to consumer. In its rawness we discover that the simple yet important concept of 'playing fair' is important for children and grown ups alike.

Nigeria’s Nightmare: Not Just Low Oil, No Oil

Paul Wallace and David Malingha Doya Cheap oil was always going to be a problem for Nigeria. Since the early 1970s, Africa’s most populous country has been one of the world’s biggest crude suppliers, averaging about 2 million barrels a day. The 2000s were particularly lucrative, as high prices for oil and other commodities attracted billions in foreign investment and pushed Nigeria’s economy to an 8 percent annual growth rate. All oil producers are getting fewer dollars per barrel these days, but Nigeria has a bigger problem: Militants have stepped up attacks on pipelines and export terminal

Where U.S. Companies Stand on the Border Adjustment Tax

A divide is emerging among American companies when it comes to the Trump administration’s proposed border adjustment tax. For some, the tax—which would shift taxation from where goods are produced to where goods are sold—could bode poorly, since prices for consumers would go up, potentially decreasing demand for their products. But for others, there may be a benefit, as the tax could increase demand for American-made goods, boosting sales and jobs. On both sides, companies have potentially billions of dollars at stake. Lobbyists in the retail, energy, and auto industries have already started a
