What does a stock broker, or real estate broker, or for that matter, a marriage broker do? Why?

Of course. they got furs from the trappers, they got food from river merchants, and the traded furs for food and supplies to the supplying merchants, and traded food and supplies for furs from the trappers.

The middlemen were in the middle.
The trappers brought furs to the middlemen and in return received goods they needed.
Then, the middlemen sold the furs to other people and received money.
Trappers >> Middlemen >> Consumer
