Week 1 Discussion
 

Each week I'll post some discussion items for you to review. Please select one of the discussion topics below and post your response. You can rely on the textbook for ideas, but please post your own thoughts on the issue.

Once you're done, please post a reply to at least one of your classmates' postings.
 
Discussion Topics:

    > What kinds of social interactions might be considered through the study of economics?
     
    > What are some of the most important issues facing us today in the world's economies?
     
    > How does international trade impact your life?

> How does international trade impact your life?
 
International trade is very important to me since I like to drive a Fiat, and my favorite food is imported caviar. My life would not be as happy if I was not able to get those products in the United States through international trade.

I think one of the biggest problems in the global economy is how well different systems may interact with each other. Especially formerly communist countries that are trying to adapt to a capitalist way of living.
