IMF Essays from a Time of Crisis: The International Financial System, Stabilization, and Development
Publisher: The MIT Press | Pages: 549 | Date: 2005-09-01 | ISBN : 0262562162 | PDF | 4,1MB

Stanley Fischer served as First Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund from 1994 to 2001. IMF Essays from a Time of Crisis collects sixteen essays written for the most part during his time at the IMF, each updated with Fischer’s later reflections on the issues raised. The IMF drew much criticism for some of its actions during Fischer’s tenure, and he vigorously defends the “battlefield medicine” practiced by the IMF during a series of economic crises, which included the problems of economic transition in the former Soviet bloc and the Asian financial crisis. Fischer addresses the subsequent calls for reform of the international financial system and makes the case for the IMF as an international lender of last resort. Details

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?
