“All the treasures of the world – French wines, Norwegian timber, Indian spices – passed through the ports and trading houses of Holland, and the Dutch grew rich taking their cut. It was the Dutch who first figured out that in a global economy, the big money accrues not to those who produce but to those who broker and trade. While their neighbors made goods, the Dutch made money.”

– David Brook, A History of Future Cities
