Daisey brings us the true story of his journey to a remote South Pacific island whose inhabitants worship America as a source of power and plenty. He interweaves their poignant tale with a penetrating examination of today’s global financial crisis. Part adventure story, part memoir, and an unforgettable exploration of how money makes the world go round.

“The master storyteller…one of the finest solo performers of his generation.” — The New York Times
