The Propensity to Truck, Barter, and Exchange
The foundation for economic growth is trade. People trade because they expect it to improve their well-being. However, trade can be costly, and barriers can thwart progress. In this lesson you will learn about the major benefits of trade, and about the obstacles to exchange countries often erect that reduce prosperity for all.
