The Mander Clusters: IFOG

Undue Influence by Ron Arnold

Jerry Mander has become a linchpin in two important global clusters, the International Forum on Globalization (IFOG) cluster of about 60 groups, and the Funder's Network on Trade and Globalization.
The problem: IFOG was created for the purpose of stopping economic globalization - preventing economic growth worldwide by stopping the development of high-yield agriculture, safe water, roads, and other vital infrastructure and by gaining control over global markets and centralizing global economic power in new United Nations institutions. IFOG's goals are a menace to prosperity and democracy worldwide.
