The Universal Postal Union was the forerunner of the League of Nations which in turn led to the United Nations as we know it today. Their Headquarters are in Berne, Switzerland.

I hesitate to put up a lot of links yet as I just stumbled across this and have numerous tabs open at the moment....still reading.

"Perhaps the earliest and most notable example of international organisations was the Universal Postal Union (1874), whose members agreed on the co operative and uniform handling of mail, parcel post and money orders passing from one country to another. Some instances of international co operation agreed upon at international conventions were the stamping out of the international slave trade (1884 85), the establishment of international standards of weights and measures (1875), and the definition, at the first Hague Conference (1899) for humanitarian purposes, of certain “Laws of War.”

High Level Conferences

Impact of the economic crisis on postal activities

The UPU is bringing together high-level stakeholders from the postal sector to take part in a conference on the financial crisis in Berne, on April 2, 2009. This high-level debate will explore not only the crisis' negative effects but also the new business opportunities it may bring to postal operators.

Participants will include CEOs from international postal operators, such as the Hellenic Post, TNT Post, La Poste française, Poste Italiane, United States Postal Service, Russian Post, Hongkong Post, Poste Maroc.

The Secretary General of the International Telecommunication Union, the Deputy Governor of Bank of Greece, the Vice President of US Direct Marketing Association and Ebay's Vice President will also add their voices to the debate.

I am wondering about the current state of affairs with the USPS as well as the true nature and impact that Nixon's Postal Act of 1970 had.

Anyone else that has done research along these lines?
