    Globalization is the opening up of the national economy from one state to a global market. Countries are therefore increasingly exchanging with each other.

    Interdependence refers to the relationship of mutual dependence between people, companies or states. Globalization increases the interdependence between countries.

    Economic barriers are obstacles to trade. For example, border taxes are barriers to trade because they can dramatically increase the price of a product.
