I learned something this week about the history of trade that I never knew before.
After World War II, our world got together and tried to figure out how to prevent more world wars. Making sure that everyone had access to food and that all the countries were relying on each other was a part of that solution.
Since WWII, the United States has negotiated trade agreements with 20 countries. Other countries have many, many more trade agreements. And guess what? It’s working!
Surely trade isn’t the only reason we haven’t had global wars, but it isn’t hurting.
You know what they say: if you don’t remember history, you are doomed to repeat it!
