ABSTRACT
The article comments on several issues related to globalization. Technologies are being combined with intelligence and sometimes with forces from around the world into a common labor group. State ownership may or may not give a multinational company a significant advantage but will lead to uncertainties. Institutions like the World Trade Organization should be able to arbitrate disputes and build confidence and openness.
