This paper discusses how globalization has been transforming the world economically and politically to such an extent that political scientists are predicting the death of the nation-state. This has not happened yet, but the nation-state system which has prevailed for several centuries is steadily declining in significance as international corporations wield greater power and influence, and as economic unions such as NAFTA, CAFTA, and the EU continue to develop and expand. The paper further discusses how proponents of globalization and many free trade theorists contend that global trade creates enough economic gains that everyone involved can benefit, as long as the gains are widely redistributed between national trading partners.
