New Spaces: Globalization of the Market Economy

  • Philippe de Woot

Abstract

Since Neolithic times humans have striven to improve their material circumstances by gathering resources, inventing tools and expanding trade. As soon as surpluses could be generated, trade became one of the most powerful engines of economic development. Commerce developed, money was invented, competition emerged. Since then the markets have never ceased to put the economy under pressure, thus causing long lasting development trends.
