Sir: Your correspondent Howard Cheney (letter, 1 December) asks why trade is beneficial. In case he really does not know, the answer is that without trade we would all have to become primary producers. There would be no leisure, and therefore no culture, no science, no cities, no mobility, indeed no newspapers.
