„What his vision of free commodity exchange omits are the constraints that governed the selection of particular commodities, and the political and military sanctions used to ensure the continuation of quiet asymmetrical exchanges that benefited one party while diminishing the assets of another.“

—  Eric Wolf

Source: Europe and the People Without History, 1982, Chapter 11, The Movement of Commodities, p. 314.
