But, at the same time, economic integration has frequently been associated with growing trade imbalances, increased financial market volatility, and less effective domestic macroeconomic policies.To identify domestic and international policies that will help nations around the world achieve the greatest net benefits from global integration, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City sponsored a symposium, titled qGlobal Economic Integration: Opportunities and Challenges, q at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on August 24-26, 2000.
