Neo-Liberalism

A political philosophy that favors free trade, globalization, and openness to the free market.

Neo-liberalism advocates floating exchange rates, the reduction or elimination of tariffs, privatization of nationalized companies, and similar practices. International organizations well-known for advocating neo-liberal policies include the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization.
