Growing Grapes in Scotland The old global order was shattered by two world wars. Globalisation retreated with the collapse of capital flows, migration and trade. Between 1913 and 1950, the world economy grew much more slowly than in 1870-1913.

The period from the 1950s to the 1970s saw the end of most of the colonial empires. After the Second World War, the United States emerged as the dominant power in the West, competing with the Soviet bloc in the newly independent countries of Asia and Africa.
