Excerpt

A striking fact with respect to the world today is the economic interdependence of nations. To say that no modern nation lives in complete isolation is only to state the obvious. Powerful forces, which it is proposed to survey in this volume, place all nations in close association with other nations and bind them together through countless cultural and economic ties created by the activities of their citizens. Even the United States, which, by virtue of its immense territory, the wealth of its natural resources, and the size of its population, might maintain itself in relative isolation more easily than other nations with fewer 'natural advantages, is inextricably bound to the world economy. So significant are the relationships among nations, particularly in the economic sphere, that the study of international trade has been long recognized as a separate field of inquiry in the science of economics.
