It was indeed confusing; however it was an interesting discussion on how some international trade can be seen as favoring the richer countries ; who keep their 'dominance' through "arm twisting" tactics. Both men had good arguments and I personally wasn't able to walk away feeling either man won the argument, they for the most part agreed with one another.
