The first theories about the positive results of national and international work-divisions were written by Adam Smith (1723-1790) and about comparative costs by David Ricardo (1772-1823). At the IGLS-Forum Prof.Dr.J.Rod Franklin from KLU Education presented a chart of the increase of international trade after the smoothing between East and West.

According to Prof.Dr.B.Hallier this chart should be considered also at the present decisions in politics - "as the wealth of nations is dependant on a peaceful flow of internatonal trade" !

Rothenburg o.d.Tauber's roots go back to the year 970; the city had its economical peak between 1274 and 1618 . The unique cityscape of the Middle Ages remained untouched uptill today and is dominated by more than 40 towers of its city-wall.
