Sarah is a schoolgirl. After her breakfast of an English muffin, she slips on her Italian shoes to go to school in her father’s German car, which uses petrol from Middle East. After school, Sarah and her brother Jack stop off at the local music shop to buy the latest chart topper. Although the album is by a famous Swedish pop star, the CD itself is made in China, and the brother and sister cannot wait to play it on their Japanese stereo. After dinner, Jack sends mysterious SMS messages, using his Finnish mobile phone, to his friends and Sarah switches on their made-in-Taiwan PC and surfs the net with their American web browser. Text from a leaflet of European Commission about International Trade.
