Trading up or trading down.
It matters not,
It only matters about whether she makes you laugh
or makes you frown.
We tend to see life as a system of barters,
exchanges and haggling.
Perhaps that is what it is,
but do not delude yourself and think
that it must be such.

When someone gives you something in return for something, usually for equal value but then value is relative; this is the solution to our unhealthy reliance on money.

Oh, trade. What a beautiful word. It has been part of my papers and days, and I mean that. I work with international law. A huge percentage of it involves trade. Why does trading bring so many issues? Shouldn’t it be a way of solving actual conflicts? >.>

There is nothing in this life better than the ability to trade. Not trade, as in barter goods or exchange materialistic objects, but trade as in truly engage with the perception of another individual – with their existence, their creation. To trade is to give and to receive simultaneously, and with true trading between people the world could progress towards a state of compassion, understanding, love and happiness.

exchange. method of attaining mutual benefit through exchange. If i trade you, i expect an equal value for whatever I give you, and I assume that you accept what I would like to trade you for whatever value you think its worth. Trade could also be an occupation, as in, carpentry, or woodcutting, or something like that. Writing is also a trade.

So in Neopets yesterday I went on the trading post and tried to ask someone for their item btu they are really stupid and wouldn’t give me the item for the amount that gave them omg like some people in the world iI just don’t even know what kind of things they think, like sometimes on the boards I would see scams but like obviously only dumb people get scammed like my friend the other day told me he got scammed 55 mil but that is impossible unless you are really idiotic :)
Trade is what happens when sports teams royally mess up (see Babe Ruth). However some times it works out for the better. Trade can also be about Pokemon cards, as any 3rd grader in the good old days will tell you. Finally the boring definition of trade is international commerce. Currently, the US is being destroyed in this department.

“What I wouldn’t trade to get a view of where you’ve been,” Jensen thought. “That’d be exactly what I need to get out of this place, another set of eyes.”
“Hmmm…” cooed the voice in a soft, almost inaudible murmur, “This one has potential.”

Trade is what you do in Pokemon to make yourself a better trainer. The only way to get all 150 in the original is to trade; for example, Bellsprout is not available in Red version. Alternatively, trade is what happens in the sports world, often with dire consequences (see Babe Ruth).

Trade is unqeual. Today I was telling my students about trade during colonial times and what it meant for a colony to “trade” with its mother country. I realized I had to make it more concrete for them, so I gave them an example of a situation where you can only by something at one store. Tehn another example of a situation where the low paying job is the only job you can get. Then I realized: that’s a description of their lives.

Something that people did in the old days. I know it still happens now but I think of it more in terms of the 1600s. Christopher Columbus sailing for trade. It does still shape our lives in ways that are just as big as it did then but I don’t notice so much.

Trade is something that goes on between countries in exchange of goods and natural resources. But for the purposes of this writing I’m trading ideas…with the paper. I’ll write and the paper will give me feedback in return, a fair trade I’d say. This is the first time I’ve done a tra

Do it freely, without expecting anything in return. You might get a surprise.

When you’re a kid everything is up for trade. “Trade you this for that!” I wish it still worked like that. Now the only thing you can trade with is the paper in your pocket.

Trade reminds me of the trading that takes place between two small children in daycare or kindergarten. It was always drilled into our heads that trading was good, but who’s to say that trading was always fair? I can think of plenty of times when someone got ripped off on a trade. “I’ll trade you this sucker for your bag of Halloween candy” and without thinking, there went a trade.

She tried trading her fragile heart in for something so much more. What do you want? asked the merchant. Something greater; something not so easily broken; something that would make me avoid the pain no matter what, she replied. I have just the thing for you, but are you sure you want it? Yes, she replied. So he gave her a stone heart.

Trade plays a huge role in the development of countries in the world today. Trade allows one to specialize in the production of a specific good, while trading in for goods that it may not be as good in producing.

Far off coastal cities. The Silk Road. China. Tibet. Cloud covered mountains and horse driven wagons carrying assorted useless paraphernalia, stuff that kids make to play with when a manufactured toy can’t be found. Great sea bound Vessels headed to undisclosed locations throughout the Globe. Hands in a friendly embrace. Deals struck, and the jingle of coins in a canvas pocket.

I didn’t hesitate. I slid the money into his hand. And he handed me the package. The trade was done; now it was a matter of getting home unnoticed. The last thing I need is to be discovered – because let’s face it, that would ruin the fun of surprise.

Trade is a huge reason that countries are able to specialize in the making of goods. If a country can simply import certain goods from other nations rather than producing it themselves they are able to spend more time producing other goods. Furthermore, this allows countries to become very good in the production of certain goods and results in constantly improving technology.

I would like to trade this in for a better word. A word that I find more interesting or might have more chances of getting me noticed for the good that I can and will do in the world. This word has a negative connotation and makes me sad sometimes. I would like to trade it.

Trading is a form of bonding. You build a relationship and communicate to make mutual ends meet. On more modern terms trade can mean the characteristics that classify what one does to make ends meet. ultimately that is what trade consists of.

I’d trade my world to make you happy. Because happy you makes a happy me. =)

Far off coastal cities, boisterous market places. Animals, feathers and seeds litter a cobblestone street, hands caught in a friendly embrace. Deals stuck, satisfied sun-withered faces, and the small jingle of foreign coins striking each other in a canvas pocket.
