Microtrade and legal cultural considerations

Chapter


Abstract


  • As discussed throughout this book, microtrade is essentially a mechanism to

    support development in LDCs through the creation of a mechanism, structure,

    and organization that will facilitate small-scale international trade from

    LDCs into more developed markets. Microtrade facilitates this through leveraging

    the lower labor costs in LDCs, demand in more developed markets, and

    through collaborative and voluntary efforts to minimize the costs of shipping

    and other barriers to such small-scale trading ventures.
