"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    It is really an original way to get across economics matter. From my viewpoint, all statements sound right. :)

    They do indeed @Deucalion . I especially like an Italian corporation explanation @mheredge . It's so them with their piano-piano attitude.

    Hmm...I’m at work now.

    I’m wondering if I should focus on my work or if I should watch this video first to learn why my work is always busy and makes little profit...

    Tit for tat, it seems that the Chinese are flexing their muscles against the latest US trade tariffs on steel and iron imports from China. Both sides have a lot to lose. China likes American pork and soya.

    In order for the world to work, we have to give and take, and compromise a lot of the time. Some countries seem to be better at that than others!

    Let's hope it doesn't escalate into a major trade war though @GemmaRowlands.
