Revelation mentions a world government, or rather a group of nations that act as one. It is affectionately referred to as "the Beast." Those who will not worship the Beast and have its number engraved on their hand/head, will not be able to buy/sell (economic pressure). this would fit in well with the ten toes that Daniel sees as the last world kingdom to appear prior to the coming of Christ.
