    Default sentence

    I have several things in my mind, but I can't put them together to make a sentence.

    1) America is a world market. (In here, I mean America has many trades with global countries. If I use "world market" wrong, please correct me. )
    2) America plays an important role in the world's business/ economy. (I don't know how to express that in English...)
    3) America has a high reputation in the world's markets.

    I am totally confused...Hopefully, I don't confuse you...

    Please help me put these things together in one sentence.

    Thank you very much.
