Adjustment and financing in the developing world : the role of the International Monetary Fund by International Monetary Fund( )

33 editions published between 1982 and 1994 in English and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The accelerated inflation and large payments imbalances that have plagued the world economy in recent years have created new challenges for economic policy. Institutions such as the Internatrional Monetary Fund have found themesleves operating in a global environment markedly different from that for which they were originally designed, and developing countries have found their aspirations threatened by large increases in their payments deficits. There have been wide disagreements about the most suitable policy responses by developing countries to these problems and about the appropriateness of ther stabilization programs favored by the Fund. During the 1970s the growth in international commercial bank lending to some developing countries served a purpose in recycling the surpluses of the members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)-but at the cost of a growing external debt, and there are signs that debt problems may intensify during the next few years
African poverty at the millennium : causes, complexities, and challenges by Howard White( )

29 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The multifaceted nature of the poverty problem, and the widening gap between the levels of human well-being in Africa, compared with the other developing regions, are the central themes of this report. The key elements of poverty reduction strategies in the region are reviewed, pointing at the need for accelerated economic growth, if living standards are to improve in Africa. To this end, the report outlines the growth of African poverty, amid the variations between countries, which reflect regional differences, such as higher levels of infant/child mortality in West Africa, though this gap is narrowing, partly because of the higher HIV/AIDS prevalence in eastern, and southern Africa. It analyzes the causes of poverty, through the interaction of cause and effect, neglect, and policy implications, and examines economic stagnation as the cause of much poverty, through an overview of growth vs. distribution, the slow pace of growth in Africa, and the impact of growth as it affects poverty groups differently. However, it also points at the failure of both governments, and markets in reducing poverty, stating political systems do contribute to economic stagnation, whereas sustainable social indicators require not only growing incomes, but improved state service provision. The need for the donor community to redefine poverty reduction is imminent, and the report suggests more selective aid allocation, including debt relief, in accordance with government commitments to reducing poverty

IMF programmes in developing countries : design and impact by Tony Killick( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As linchpin of the global financial system, the International Monetary Fund provides balance of payments support, chiefly to developing countries, conditional on strict remedial policy measures. Its approach to policy remains highly controversial, however. While the Fund claims it has adapted, critics allege its policies are harshly doctrinaire, imposing hardships on already poor people. For the critics, the half-century of its existence is 'fifty years too long' and radical change is essential. This book examines the arguments, tracing the extent of Fund adaptation, presenting major new evidence on the consequences of Fund programmes, and considering its future role

Aid and the political economy of policy change by Tony Killick( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume looks at the effectiveness of conditionality in structural adjustment programmes. Tony Killick charts the emergence of conditionality, and challenges the widely held assumption that it is a co-operative process, arguing that in fact it tends to be coercive and detrimental to development objectives. Through detailed case studies of 21 recipient countries, he explores the key issues of: ownership; the role of agencies; and government objectives and the effects of policy. The conclusion is that conditionality has been counterproductive to price stability, economic growth and investment
