Joe Bennett bought 5 pairs of underpants for $8.59 at The Warehouse, didn't understand how they could be sold for that price, and so went to find out.

Following the chain of supply and manufacture all the way back to the source, Joe's journey took him to ports, warehouses and factories in China and Thailand and eventually to cotton fields near the Chinese border with Afghanistan. In the process he learned something of the industrial giant that is China and why it is set to dominate in the 21st century.

Introduction: Tony Fisk.
