Jacqueline Landry's curator insight, December 15, 2013 7:34 AM

Shipping containers has helped mordern globalization in many ways. The amount of trade we do with other countries allows for a cheaper process. The amount of items we can trade now because of containerization is way more than we did with trucks. 

megan b clement's comment, December 15, 2013 9:16 PM
Containers have become such an essential part of our economy and shipping all together. SHipping in containers and on ships is not only cost effective but they can use machines to load them onto the decks of the ships. You can fit an obscene amount of product in the containers as well. The containers are also completely private you cannot see into the container so people are less likely to steal if they are unable to know what is inside.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, July 21, 3:46 PM

"With three work days a week, we would have more time to relax; for quality of life," Slim said during a recent business conference in Paraguay. "Having four days [off] would be very important to generate new entertainment activities and other ways of being occupied."

 

The downside though, is that people would work until they're 70 or 75 years old. The work week would be shorter, but there would be a lot more of them. Retiring at 50 or 60, which mainly seems like an impossible pipedream these days, would not be in the cards.
