Abstract

The economies of the world are becoming increasingly integrated. This is evidenced in particular by
  • globalization of markets,

  • increased interdependence of trade,

  • greater mobility of labor, capital and knowledge,

  • internationalization of production and increasingly complex ownership patterns,

  • the predominance of multinational corporations,

  • the formation of large economic blocs (above all the EU, the Nafta, the Mercosur and, in future, the Association of Pacific Economies (APEC)), each featuring a major degree of internal coordination of economic policy.
