Azerbaijan the land of oil

By joniferdingcong. Originally published at ValueWalk.

Azerbaijan is doing very well, and that has everything to do with the the fact that the country is rich with large amounts of oil and gas. It was one of the first centers of the oil industry in the world at the end of the 19th century, and now the country is going through a new oil boom. Jelle goes out with an eccentric billionaire, takes a bath in crude oil, and dives into the rich past of the capital Baku.
