One of the principal goals of this journal is to evaluate the impact of the

globalization of law, politics, and markets. This article focuses on the

economic integration of markets in Europe, where one aspect of the

"globalization" process-the process by which laws, national economies, and

political systems are becoming ever more entwined and interdependent-has

occurred to the greatest extent, albeit at a regional level. I will first give an

overview of this process and consider the factors that the European

experience in "regionalization" suggests may limit economic and other forms

of integration at the global level. I will then speculate on how the

integration of markets in Europe will change European trade policies and on

how those changes might affect the United States.
