The modern world owes much of its form and many of its tensions to the creation of an integrated world economic system which began with the 16th century European merchant's desire to find and establish new lucrative markets and trade routes.
In the 16th century the highly developed Chinese craft market was able to satisfy its foreign customers with distinctive shapes and decoration in ceramics, metalwork, textiles and lacquer, and meet the specific requirements of societies whom the craftsmen had never seen and which were very different from their own. Today the Chinese industrialist, in the tradition of his forebears, is similarly adapting to new markets, producing goods and creating unprecedented wealth.
