Which of the following examples would not be a trade, based on the explanation given in the passage provided?
To trade means to willingly give things or services and get other things or services in return. For example, a person who wants to trade a thing must find another person who wants to get that thing. The giver then gets something back in return. A trade is sometimes called an “exchange” or a “swap.”
An early type of trade is barter. A barter is the exchange of goods and services for other goods and services. Barter involves trading things without the use of money. If a trade is made of a good or service for money, then it is called a purchase.
Trade occurs not just between people, but also between companies or even countries. Governments sometimes trade goods made in their country for the goods made in another country. Ideally, trades should be fair and both sides should feel like the exchange was equal in value.
