The new world economy force demands more attention to the labor rules national economies apply-as they ineract more and more with eachother. The demographic force throws in a series of migration-related issues. It is hard to imagine the world twenty years from now not having some sort of global labor market rules in place-because such a market is clearly in the making.

The labor and migration issues, like the other issues, bring up one central message: the world has become very small, entangled, and complex, bringing all kinds of global issues to the fore-none of which we can afford to leave unsolved for very long.
