This essay talks about how, knowing the problems the world is going through nowadays, with the global crisis and more and more wealth concentrated in fewer hands, it is necessary that countries and organisations help creating a global solution, which has to pass by creating a legal structure that makes sure there isn’t too much power in the hands of the largest and more influent countries and organisations, and creating also regulations that prevent countries all over the world from being affected by the fluctuations of the economies of other countries, as we are getting more and more connected throughout time.
