negative trade - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
They said the food trade would be great for both sides, it was the thing that brought us the most harm. It came in as a flood of goods, and at first it was welcomed. What happened next was the trading, the middle players, the ones who creamed off the cash as merchants while the poor had no money for it at all. Then the farmers went broke and we lost the local crops, all the stuff we had depended on for generations. What do we do now, now that the plants we need are dead? I guess we sit here, dependant on foreign trade, at the mercy of those with financial clout.
