I feel like the most unexpected thing was how much trade policy determines where everything gets made. In Indonesia and Bangladesh, we saw entire industries (spinning and sewing) that got started because of quotas in the seventies. Entire nations were transformed by numbers in some trade deal.

Thanks so much. We do not take funding directly and here's why: NPR is set up as a network. Your support for your member station helps pay for us and the foreign bureaus and the science desk. This allows us to cover what we think we should cover, not what will generate the most donations. But I will ask this:

Download every episode. (this is the number that advertisers look at) Get your friends into Planet Money. Buy our next product, if we come up with one. And do consider supporting your local station. they support us.
