America and Hawaii, as known in the “modern post industrial” era are both founded on the Natural Law, or Divine/Universal Law (America 1776, Hawai’i 1839).

In Full Value… Equal Value
For something to be “Paid” …. A Promise must be fulfilled. Completed the contract.

“Commerce” and “Trade” are often used interchangeably; but strictly speaking, commerce relates to dealings with foreign nations, states, or political communities, while trade denotes business exchange or mutual traffic within the limits of a state or nation. Buying selling, and trading between members of the same “community.” …the whole world.
Remember… in the Law of Commerce or the Natural Law…
In either venue… TRUTH IS SOVEREIGN.
