1 MODULE 14 – Emerging Trends Introduction In this Module, we will discuss regional economic agreements such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for furthering international trade in relation to the IB system. We will touch upon the roles of investment, technological innovation and the Internet in the future of the IB system in relation to globalization. We will discuss the cultural and ideological differences that create challenges for economic cohesiveness among nations, thus globalization. We will elaborate on the future of the IB system and the new tools it needs to employ in order to stimulate the international capital market, hence globalization.
