In the age of globalization space has disappeared. People fly and work from everywhere; The workers are not unionized; And the welfare state is eroding. The ability of the central bank and the leaders of the economy to set independent economic policies is diminishing. What are the implications for the state? Some argue that in the age of globalization, the country is disappearing. All those politicians who run the world? Their moves are dwarfed by the powerful forces that run global society.

But there is also a counter-perception that the state is still a significant player and even a necessary condition for the existence of globalization. Without the state, there is no guarantee of the existence of contracts; There is no one to regulate relations between employees and employers; And there is no one to build roads and trains.
