Why we can’t unscramble the egg of global trade

Self-sufficiency and even reduced trade will lead to a much lower standard of living

Why we can’t unscramble the egg of global tradeThree major factors are drastically changing the world: climate change, the pandemic and, most recently, the war in Ukraine.
