The Merchant: ETEC 522
Ventures in Learning Technology
The Merchant was an admired and reviled member of society. The common people envied their wealth and the craftier of the thieves thought they could take it. I was hired to serve and protect a wealthy merchant and I fulfilled my mission dutifully. In the process, I learned the inner workings of the world of business that dictates so much of public and private life but of which I was so ignorant. A merchant is not some cunning wizard, concocting profits out of thin air. There is an intricate method through which the merchant turns yearnings into earnings that I learned through diligent service to a master merchant.
