Obelix has always carried menhirs. He knows it’s a good trade, but what he has never considered is the possibility that it might be a good business as well. A tiny Roman visits him one day and tells him that he will pay him good money if he delivers menhirs to his Roman camp. Despite finding it odd, Obelix decides to play along, what’s the harm anyway? However, the Roman begins paying him more money, and tells him to hire assistants. He also suggests that Obelix dress better, like a real businessman. Soon, Obelix finds himself spending less time with Asterix, off hunting boars, and more time managing his business. He has no idea that Caius Preposterus has been sent by none other than Julius Caesar himself. The Roman is a graduate of the Latin School of Economics, and he has a penchant for business. However, is business really a good thing for the Gauls?
