‘reactive’ is a novel contribution to the political economic discussions on internationaltrade.
Less likely hostilities through trade

On the other hand, international trade and the functioning of the global trading system is one of the major factors that have a significant impact upon the shaping of the present and future world order.
Recently Echinothrips americanus and
Microcephalothrips abdominalis were introduced in Europe, respectively, in 1989
and 1994. Both species can be easily identified and are known from
interceptions in the international trade on different ornamental hosts. E.
americanus is spread mostly with Araceae and M. abdominalis is found on the
intensively cultivated Tagetes. Both thrips species can occur on many
ornamentals without showing obvious damage. This occurrence without damage on
commercial crops and the development on weeds hampers the effectiveness of
measures to prevent spread. Both are reported here new for Hungary and
additionally M. abdominalis is found for the first time in Croatia. Characters
and photographs for the identification of both species are given. The species
are compared with some other species described within Echinothrips and
