Personal Global Economy
Many of the items we interact with on a day to day basis are part of our global economy. Evaluate the last ten things you interacted with – clothes, food, electronics.
What countries are your personal global economy made up of? Where is the product manufactured? What is their Country of Origin?
|Item||Country of Origin||Did COE play a role in the purchase?|
|Hand cream||Norway||Yes, I remember Norwegian hand cream brand Neutrogena had become popular in my country some years ago because of their ads using Norwegian fishermen who have soft and smooth hands|
|Perfume||France||Not really, French perfume brands aren’t special I guess|
|Nutella||Italy||Well, Italy’s chocolates are not famous as much as Swiss or Belgian chocolates. I’d say no to this, because I didn’t buy Nutella considering its Country of Origin.|
|Pen||German||Yes, German pens are really the best|
|Smart watch||Japan||Yes, I tend to think Japanese are good at anything related to tech|
|Supplements||Canada||Not really, I didn’t even check its Country of Origin|
|Indian Healing Clay for Face||India||Sort of, because I know India is good in natural products, and herbal cosmetics|
|Athletic apparel||Indonesia||Not really|
|Baklava||Turkey (unlike Greeks argue! Hahah :))||Yes, Turkish baklava is famous|
|Tzatziki sauce||Greece||Yes, this Greek sauce is the best|
