ABSTRACT
This article discusses concern about growth and globalization. Over the last two decades, advocates of the internationalization of accounting have argued for the promulgation of accounting standards that erase the local in the interest of harmonizing the global market. The processes of globalization have had a huge impact on contemporary life. Globalization destabilizes the understanding of accounting with associated effects on empire, the environment and the social sphere in which accounting is conducted. It is argued that the International Monetary Fund's World Economic Survey: Globalization, Opportunities and Challenges should continue with a neo-liberal logic that assumes that a free-market order leads to efficiency and a fair distribution of economic resources. This perspective has its roots in Hayekian libertarian arguments that the intensification and integration of international capitalism is conducive to the rule of law and a peaceful world order. The articles contained in the December 2003 issue of the periodical "Accounting Forum" encourage thinking about the role and functioning of accounting within these processes. Moreover, such articles provide tentative first steps in reevaluating and re-imagining the linkages between globalization and accounting.
