dedicated to teaching the importance of the world economy and
trade. Economics is all around us, and innate in nearly everywhere you
look. As the global economy has growing prominence in people's lives,
it is increasingly necessary to understand how a global economy can be
achieved, and exactly how trade makes that happen!

is it so important?
