Forbes Asia;10/15/2007, Vol. 3 Issue 17, p16
The article covers the problems and challenges faced by the global economy including globalization, global warming, and U.S. policy on Iraq. Globalization's power was first demonstrated in the stock markets in 1997, with the onset of the Asian financial crisis. It caused the world's strategic markers and projection trends to change. On the other hand, the ultimate threat to human survival is global warming and climate change. The melting of the polar ice cap has triggered several nations abutting the Arctic to lay claim to sections of the Arctic.
