trading globally will substantially increase, due to cross-border

social networks and reductions in export costs.
According to the Intuit Future of Small Business Report,
a study that looked forward 10 years to examine the future prospects,
influences and economic landscape of small business, almost half of
U.S. small businesses plan to be involved in global trade by 2018.
