Abstract: We discuss the nature of the new labour process and its relation to accounting, trade, and international organisations. The new labour process transcends all frontiers to pursue the cheapest cost of labour. Corporations have lost their nationality and identity; all what matters is to find the low-priced, poorly paid labour. We refer to Orwell|s 1984 here to understand the nature of the new management control over labour.

Keywords: accounting; new labour process; George Orwell; international relationships; trade; international organisations; management control.
