"When we examine global trade through the lens of Big History, our human nature is revealed in striking ways. Complex issues we face today on a global scale are often rooted in business assumptions, laws, and practices of prior centuries. Big History enables a perspective to sort unexamined and potentially harmful business assumptions from characteristics that made trade an ancient human phenomenon promoting cross-cultural learning across vast regions – as it does today. Seeing our present world through new eyes is a powerful benefit of Big History. It can lead to the kinds of breakthroughs many businesses crave and to sustainable business designs our world needs."
