These are the trends that do not go away.
1-The liberalization of trade in capital flow.

3-Technology and communication enhancements.
4-Maturing established product markets.
5-Globalization competition and disintermediation (elimination of a bank as a middleman)
6-Co-ordinated efforts on monetary policies ( As an example, the G-11 countries which are really the largest 11 western industrialized countries base on GDP ( Canada, USA, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, France, Italy, The netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Switzerland )
These countries coordinate currency intervention and synchronized interest rates moves to
secure low inflation, provide a steady growth potential, keep track of historic low interest rates and trying to ensure low volatility.
