Since the 1970s, the rapid expansion and globalization of financial markets shadows most other developments in international economics. This chapter documents and defines financial globalization and discusses what caused it: developments in information-processing technologies; government deregulation; and the more global nature of all economic activity. International interest rate and financial strategy ‘parities’ are presented as new, dominant, dynamic patterns in the global economy. Financial market globalization has been a driving force behind recent imbalances in trade and investment between countries. And, the self-adjustment mechanisms within the global economy have been irreversibly changed by financial globalization.

Studying an international system implies having a definition of a nation, in order to assess to what extent the analysis of an international phenomenon can be different from an analysis which does not take into consideration the existence of nations. This chapter stresses that several definitions of a nation can be given, but what is important is defining a nation from the point of view of monetary problems. By comparison with the traditional definition of a nation in trade theory, a monetary area – or a monetary nation – can be defined as an area of circulation of a currency. The chapter also discusses whether or not a monetary area should coincide, for instance, with a political area.
