Trading With The World

How small can the world get?
People, companies, and stuff zoom around the world day by day, moving from one economy to the next and leaving their footprints in all of them. This can make things faster, cheaper, and available all year round. What’s not to love? Well, some would say quite a lot. The environment doesn’t fare well from all this flying about, and sometimes the ability for companies to distribute sales in one place and production in another has negative consequences. That doesn’t mean we should shut our borders — it just means we need to work out the best way for the global economy to function in everybody’s favor.
