The Tuesday Podcast: The Billionaire And The Tire Repairman

Subject

Interviews

Description

Wayne Disowney runs a tire repair shop in Kingston, Jamaica. He took scrap parts from an old Lincoln and turned them into a machine that retreads tires. It works great. His shop is a shack. He’s totally outside the formal economy. If he wanted to get a loan — say, to expand his business — he’d be out of luck. Michael Lee-Chin’s a billionaire. He’s the chairman of a big Jamaican bank, a guy who flies in on a helicopter for an interview.
