Globalisation and Ideology in Britain

Craig Berry

Manchester University Press

This chapter notes that the IFSL is obviously closely associated with neoliberal ideology. It is a membership organisation for financial service providers—the focus here is on its leadership and secretariat. IFSL is strongly committed to trade liberalisation and valorises an open global economy. The second section of this chapter looks at IFSL's understanding of development, trade rules and multilateralism. The third section looks directly at the concept of globalisation and asks what can be inferred from IFSL's use of the term in relation to various issues and policies, focusing in particular on spatial connotations. The discussion considers the implications of the financial crisis upon IFSL's discourse throughout.

Keywords:   IFSL, neoliberalism, trade liberalisation, open global economy, multilateralism, financial crisis
