No. Number of goods exchanged is just like price--determined by the supply and 
demand curves. The number of goods exchanged may increase, but if the increase 
in demand is less than the increase in supply, that means that the number of 
goods exchanged _per capita_ has decreased--thus per capita they are less 
wealthy.
