Lindert and Williamson (2001, p. 38) provide a summary of the long-term (1500–2000) global change in income inequality: World income inequality has risen since 1820, and probably since the sixteenth century.

Capital flows will force recipient countries to adopt better macroeconomic policies or be subject to heightened economic and financial volatility. To fully benefit from these changes, countries need a well-developed financial oversight structure.

Foreign banks could drive out domestic banks, reducing competition; or they could drive out some domestic banks and render other domestic banks more efficient, increasing competition.

Such legislation is often to the detriment of the citizenry and may be in conflict with fundamental social values. On the other hand, in a globalizing world, countries may be pressured by other countries to harmonize their regulatory regimes to attract foreign MNCs. Again, this may conflict with societal values.
