Clearly, Congress must make radical changes in our trade policies and our relationship to such international financial organizations as the IMF and the World Bank. The goal of U.S. policy must be to improve the standard of living of workers in both the United States and the developing world and not simply protect the interests of multinational corporations. We must support “fair trade” and not “free trade,” and demand that corporate America start reinvesting in the United States. NAFTA, MAI & the WTO Not long ago, the global economy didn’t matter much to the average American.

The IMF provides a plan guidance and financing to its members who are in economic difficulties and also works with emergent nations to help them reach economic stability and decrease scarcity. IMF policy assumes countries should stick to free trade, but not all countries benefit from free trade .IMF aims to pack up international trade, which is required for stability of goods services in the free trade. A state should have general free trade philosophy. We are also going to discuss how IMF’s decision affects member states that makes decisions who has the most power or most votes.
One reason for Japan and Germany’s rapid industrialization was the active role played by their governments who promoted and guided change. Each country used their powerful military to be recognized as a dominant force in the markets which as a result encouraged industrialization, however, the initial motives for industrialization in japan and Germany differed due to the pre-existing conditions in each country. Even though industrialization benefited and progressed society in both Germany and Japan it was impossible for all levels of the political hierarchy to benefit equally. After all it is the “fundamental role of the state as an institution in the capitalist world economy to augment the advantage of some against others in the market.” (Wallerstein, 3). The government has the complete ability to control who benefits from the capitalist market.

A competitive market makes a country stronger but without regulation it can threaten the country’s democracy. The President criticized the large corporations for “keeping prices artificially high and failing to increase workers’ purchasing power”(Liberty 863). Franklin D Roosevelt realized large corporations who gained monopolies were gaining immense influence on matter’s concerning government and the daily lives of American citizens. The first New Deal reforms were introduced, not to dismantle large industries but to control them in such a manner that they could never challenge the democratic government. Large corporations took advantage of the liberty given to them prior to the crash by exploiting the profits in payoffs or bribes.
Neo liberalism is an ideology established to replace Keynianism in 1970s. It proposes that human well-being can best be advanced by liberating individual entrepreneurial freedoms and skills within an institutional framework characterized by strong private property rights, free markets, and free trade. The main principles has been defined as ‘self-interest rules, market fundamentalism, the minimal state, low taxation. Neoliberalism advocates the elimination of government-imposed restrictions on transnational movements of goods, capital and people. According to Olsen, the distributional coalitions of government, special interest groups, and rent seekers slow down a society’s capacity to adopt new technologies and to relocate resources in response
