While international trade assumes the exchange of goods and services across the world, ordinary customers get closer to the newest trends in the world economy. While Chinese customers get access to the latest iPhones, American citizens enjoy the latest designs of BMW. At that, due to globalizations, companies optimize their production and supply chain locally. This means that Volkswagen or Toyota brands assemble the cars in the parts of Eastern Europe. Still, the end customers win as they benefit from competitive prices eventually. Such internalization overall benefits companies and their customers. Consequently, companies become more socially responsible and donate part of their revenue to charities. In turn, after satisfying their basic needs, customers may spend more on travelling and/or active sports. Furthermore, international companies benefit local markets by expanding employment opportunities and creating demand for local workforce.
I personally benefit from online e-commerce opportunities generated by international trade transactions. With a Visa/Master card, it is rather convenient to order goods and services from the comfort of my home. With a few clicks, I benefit from vast variety of newest options and offers on e-trade platforms. This much saves time and commuting costs.
