EconEdReviews Understanding the Ruling Elite The elite are trusted placeholders sitting atop hierarchical structures that own or at least influence massive financial and physical resources whose husbandry they have been trained to manage. They are ultimately trained decision makers reacting to proposals that finally cross their desks. To assign them the ability to actually conspire to a common goal is laughable. What is not laughable is the ambition of deal makers to do the next bigger deal until size becomes its own problem. There is no global conspiracy but there is plenty of evidence of short sighted thinking everywhere and a general lack of common cause unless an inspired leader pushes it. Much of the difficulty globally is that we lack a foundational economic theory that makes core decisions self-evident.

Trading Around the World International trade touches us all. We drink soda from cans made of aluminum mined in Australia, wear shoes made in Europe, eat fruit from South America, build machinery from steel milled in Asia, wear clothes made from African cotton, and live in homes built from North American wood. We take it for granted, yet before we can enjoy these products and materials, traders must negotiate prices and deliver the goods through a network of relationships that literally spans the globe. Play this game to experience the challenges and excitement of international trade. Before you start, think about what you want to accomplish as a trader: Do you want to build up as much wealth as you can by selling as much of your commodities as you can? The only limit is your imagination, your negotiating skills, and your bank account!
