As corporations become more global in their scope and international trade continues to expand, economies are becoming more and more integrated through trade, global financial exchange, foreign investment, as well as through the movement of people. This important phenomenon requires a greater understanding of the dynamics of global economics and its characteristics.
In addition, as trade continues to grow worldwide, global institutions addressing issues such as economic development and trade are also becoming increasingly more important. Many global institutions now play a significant role in promoting and supporting global economic development, trade, as well as global financial stability.
