Interconnectedness

The decisions made in our country affect the lives of people in other countries, just as the decisions made in other countries affect us.

For Example:

The War in Iraq has increased the World oil prices and our gas has become more expensive. Therefore less people are driving large vehicles, taxis and public transportation have become more expensive, and they have a greater demand on them.
