New England also made rum from Caribbean sugar and molasses, which it shipped to Africa and within the New World.  Nevertheless, „triangular trade,“ as considered in New England, was a piecemeal operation. It is not known that New England merchants made a sequential circuit of the complete triangle which, according to historian Clifford Shipton, used an average calendar year.  The concept of triangular trade in New England was first proposed in an 1866 george H. Moore book in a book by George H. Moore, taken up in 1872 by historian George C. Mason and which, in 1887, was fully cited by American businessman and historian William B. Weeden.  The song „Molasses to Rum“ from the 1776 musical describes this form of triangular commerce. The founding of the Weimar Triangle in 1991 by R. Dumas, H-D Genscher and K. Skubiszewski was a response to the fundamental vision of the future of Europe, shared by France, Germany and Poland, and in their view that social reconciliation should precede any concerted action within society.
Poland`s accession to the European Union in 2004 originally made the triangle a forum for consultation prior to the European negotiations, with Poland`s accession to the European Union. During the Ukraine crisis, the Weimar Triangle met informally with the three Ministers Fabius, Steinmeier and Sikorski who met in Kiev on 20 February 2014 to negotiate a post-crisis solution between President Yanukovych and the opposition. An agreement was signed to end the violence and mark the beginning of the political transition. A classic example is the colonial trade in molasses. Traders purchased raw sugar (often in its liquid form, molasses) from plantations in the Caribbean and shipped it to New England and Europe, where it was sold to rum-producing distilleries. The profits from the sale of sugar were used to buy rum, furs and wood in New England, which traders shipped to Europe. With the profits from the European sale, distributors bought European industrial products, including tools and weapons. Then the traders shipped these products with American sugar and rum to West Africa, where they were exchanged for slaves. The slaves were then brought back to the Caribbean and sold to sugar farmers.
The profits from the sale of slaves in Brazil, the Caribbean islands and the southern United States were then used to buy more sugar and revive the cycle. According to historian Clifford Shipton, the full triangle trip lasted on average one calendar year.  Triangular or triangular trade is a historical term that indicates trade between three ports or regions. Triangular trade generally develops when a region has export goods that are not needed in the region from which its main imports originate. Triangular trade thus offers a method to eliminate trade imbalances between the aforementioned regions.
