... importance of cork to the Portuguese. I have seen bags, hats, key chains, and household items made of cork being sold everywhere. In the grand scheme to worldwide trade, this seems to be a commodity not of great demand. Could this be a primary reason Portugal is not being propelled into an economic “superpower”?
