Commodities involved: the environment is destroyed (trade away) for pleasure and convenience.

It’s a non-monetary trade. The trade is enabled by insufficient environmental regulations. People prioritising personal pleasure and traffic over the environment profit. It’s a contemporary problem and discussion. YOLO – You Only Live On-one-earth

Commodities involved: the animals and the hunters and the weapons

Some evil hunters are capturing animals to put into a zoo to make money from people who visit and look at animals in captivity. They are using tranquilizers. The animals decide to fight back and build a human zoo and intercept the hunters, rescue the animals and put the hunters in the zoo. Hunting is wrong. Not all zoos are good. Some have breeding programmes and do conservation work, but some […]

I got a lego set (again)

Commodities involved: Lego. Greek class.

I go to Greek class every week and get pocket money for it. I always buy Lego with my pocket money. The shop keeper profits from me buying the Lego. But I profit because I get to spend time with my Grandfatehr. It happens every week.

Commodities involved: the standardisation of glassware (in laboratories)

Scientists are making the transition to standardisation. Coming together at a unified research group, using the the same measurements. My grandfather was involved in standardising lab glassware.

Commodities involved: A person

Human trafficking. Criminals are making the money. It felt like it was good to touch an important, serious issue that doesn’t get talked about much in the media. I heard stuff about it.

Commodities involved: The Instagram value of my cats – how much they’re worth in terms of likes. I know that Jack is worth more than Maisy. He gets more likes.

I’m profiting because I’m receiving likes. Instagram because I’m desperate for their platform so I’m generating money for them. I chose this moment think because I do this quite often and it’s an amusing thing. It’s more of a confession in a way.

Commodities involved: Is there anything that can’t be traded?

The cops are arresting people, another guy “Mr Smooth” is bribing the cops. It’s happening around the world. Doing this broadened what I think about in terms of trade and exchange. What is a commodity. Is there anything that can’t be traded?

Commodities involved:  Fish for tricks

It’s a barter. The trainer has set the going rate. The Dolphin gets fish and the trainer sells that spectacle to the audience. I saw the dolphin in the lego pile and wondered what it could trade…
