Global modeling has evolved remarkable in the last two decades. Such evolution led global modeling to perform today's role as an experimental laboratory for the social sciences, and particularly for applications to policy planning. Two of the most interesting applications to policy are to resource economics and to economic models of North-South Relations, i.e., the relationships between industrial and developing countries. Examples of North-South Policy issues instigated by global modeling are developed in the third section. This is in the context of a United Nations model of technology and North-South relations which evolved from the Bariloche global model. Further applications of global modeling are outlined in the final section.
