  • Details

    • Includes contributions from leading academics and experts including economists, political scientists, and historians.
    • A unique and innovative volume on the history, policies, and financing of the IMF in the world's poorest regions
    • Brings together leading research on economic growth, poverty reduction, and macroeconomic stability

    This book provides an assessment of the role of the International Monetary Fund in poor countries. In recent years, a large portion of the work of the IMF has focused on the economies of low-income countries by aiming to create conditions conducive to poverty reduction and stable economic growth. More than two fifths of the IMF's 185 members are low-income countries and many others have substantial pockets of poverty in their populations. Since economic development and the reduction of poverty are the most important economic challenges that these countries face, how can the IMF best help them? How can the imperative of macroeconomic and financial stability be reconciled with the requirements for sustained economic growth? This volume brings together the research of leading economists, political scientists, and historians to suggest ways for the IMF to address these issues effectively

    Readership: Academics and researchers in the fields of Economics, Development Economics, Economic History, International Relations and Political Science. Officials from multilateral institutions, NGOs, development agencies and ministries, and finance ministries.
