In Episode One of The Invisible Hand (The Great Gouge), we headed of to Bamako, Mali. That’s where we met Abdoulaye Diawara, who told us about the price gouging that happens every year before the feast day of Tabaski. He has to pay the equivalent of a month’s rent to buy a sacrificial sheep for the feast. Here’s Abdoulaye pictured with some of his family. This photo was taken by Professor Bruce Whitehouse of Lehigh University, who also gathered the tape of the marketplace for us. Be sure to visit his blog, Bridges from Bamako.
