Stephen Geldbaum "Trader" Smurf is a Smurf character who is part of the EMPATH: The Luckiest Smurf story series.
He is a Smurf who likes to collect things and even trade things with his fellow Smurfs for whatever catches his fancy that they have, even if the item he wants doesn't have any particular use for him other than just being in his collection. He likes the idea of the monetary system that humans use, despite the fact that such a system wouldn't work in Smurf society since everything they do and create is for the benefit of the whole community and that they freely share whatever they have with each other. His attempt to bring such a system into Smurf society had ultimately resulted in failure and rejection, as the Smurfs preferred the old system of sharing and cooperation better. The closest character analog would be Finance Smurf from the comic books.
