    Absolutely not...that is the fallacy of globalization. In effect, the joke is on us here in the democratic side of the world. We are being sold on the idea that the world is moving toward a singular global economy and we have to be in it or die.  In order to do so we must become more accepting of international laws and international governance which is nothing more than a build up toward a one world government which is nothing short of absolute insanity and a total power grab on the part of a few to hold forth over the many.  A true global economy would be free of tariffs and restrictions between trading ports, goods, and services.  We are far from any sort of situation as that. In fact, the USA has thrown open its own doors to free trade and total competition and in effect has undermined its own economic structure in the process...another method implemented to push us into globalization.  You can file the term "globalization" in the same folder with Socialism, Marxism, and Communism for it fits very nicely with those subjects and the redistribution of wealth.
