Together with the permissive conditions of a world system broken into separate, national “sovereignties” and technological change that reduces the costs of communication and transportation, this governance structure provides the foundation for globalization.

Further, as suggested by McGinnis in this volume, for any governance system to survive in the long run, it must build legitimacy. This is often done by redistributing some of the gains of collective action from winners to losers. Globalization processes, with their emphasis on quick changes in production technologies and increased exposure to foreign trade, will create many losers. Consequently, institutionalized mechanisms for redistribution or side-payments are required. The existing governance institutions, particularly the state, may be better placed to provide such redistributive services than any new ones.
