From the Paper:

"International trade has driven mankind throughout history. Conquerors and explorers traversed the earth in the name of enhancing economic opportunities. Today, international business manifests itself not in caravans and caravels, but in a web of cross-border transactions. To facilitate modern global trade, today's nation-states have developed complex trade agreements that outline the manifestations of trade to the finest detail. To support this trade, an international financial system had developed. This system is critical because it allows for the flows of capital to move relatively freely, despite the existence of over one hundred different currencies. We have seen in recent years that various trade agreements have allowed even developing markets to become integrated into the global financial system (Das, 2003)."
