In this paper I examine the effect of globalization on state policy. This paper is based on the ideals of globalization in politics and state power as defined by the Constitution of the United States. I have two assertions with the second building from the first. I first hypothesize that globalization undermines state power, followed by the hypothesis that because globalization does undermine state power, states are coerced to take - counteracting legislative action in order to remain a necessary governing body.
