During this process we have heard a number of recurring themes and we are leveraging this feedback to drive our product development. This is what we heard:Increase SalesIncrease Customer ServiceIncrease Profit(Ask the audience to think about and write down their top priorities. Use that as reference point throughout the day.)

    3. 3. Eight Lessons from The Trading Game Lesson Example Subjectivity Value is the eye of the beholder. All value is subjective, not objective. Free trade creates value Trading freely creates value even though the physical nature of the good remains the same. Win-win In aggregate, free exchange is a win-win game. Rule of law The game works because the rules are stated upfront and adhered to by the participants. Scarcity Scarcity can be a factor, but it alone does not create value. Opportunity costs There are tradeoffs, not solutions. It is not, “Do I want it?” but “How much do I want it?” The more the merrier The more available trading partners, the more value is created. Trade “deficit” People trade not governments.
