ICC International Chamber of Commerce
(not only the InterContinental Caravan) The ICC, which promotes itself as "the world business organization" with members in over 130 countries, is not primarily an umbrella for chambers of commerce from around the world as the name might suggest. Its membership includes some of the world's wealthiest transnational corporations: Asea Brown Boveri, Bayer, British Petroleum, Dow Chemical, General Motors, Hyundai, Nestle, Novartis, Shell, Toshiba, Zeneca and so forth. Quite a few national business associations are also part of the ICC.

- IMF International Monetary Fund (spanish: FMI)
The International Monetary Fund (IMF), traditionally responsible for helping countries to meet their balance of payments requirements and setting currency standards, has been a key instrument in prying open markets for foreign investors and bailing them out in the case of a financial crisis. The IMF's crowbar is a set of investment liberalization measures which rob countries of their economic sovereignty.
