Beyond Economics: Marine Resources Company International

During the Cold War era, Seattle was uniquely equipped to engage in Cold War peace activism. Examples such as the establishment of the Seattle-Tashkent sister city relationship and the hosting of Target Seattle showcase that the Pacific Northwest was a region willing to engage with sensitive subjects.

Promoting peace was also present on a smaller scale, especially through economic relationships. One good example of smaller scale activism is the Marine Resources Company officially established in 1978.
