The mercantilist legacy is still with us. Following the mercantilist lead, we have learned to view trade as zero-sum competition, with winners and losers, rather than positive-sum cooperation, in which both sides win. Our very language is biased with mercantilist judgments. Viewing trade issues from the perspective of the producer rather than the consumer, we think of exports as what we gain from trade and imports as what we give up, rather than the other way around. Thus, we refer to an excess of exports over imports as a "favorable" trade balance and an excess of imports over exports as an "unfavorable" trade balance.

He came to the next farm and asked the next fellow the same question. " They shook hands. As our farmer was walking away, something struck him.
