"Starting with a historical background tracing the evolution of the IMF, the book goes on to cover such themes as: the circumstances under which countries turn to the IMF, the various aspects of IMF conditionality, institutional issues such as lending facilities and how the Fund is resourced, and the political economy of IMF issues." "The book will undoubtedly be required reading for anyone with a serious interest in development studies, international relations and international economic policy."--Jacket

IMF lending to developing countries : issues and evidence by Graham Bird( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Monetary Fund was created to centralise the management of the global monetary system. As international financial markets evolved, the richer countries turned to other, more flexible sources of finance and IMF lending became almost exclusively focused on the developing world. And yet the IMF has been widely criticised for its lending role in developing countries, with some arguing that it should not be lending at all and others claiming that net reverse flows since the mid-1980s suggest that the Fund has abrogated its responsibilities. This book provides the first detailed theoretical and empirical analysis of Fund lending and concludes that key changes are needed if the Fund is to realise its full potential for assisting developing countries

International financial policy and economic development : a disaggregated approach by Graham Bird( Book )

24 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the international financial problems of developing countries and the ways in which international financial policy might be used to alleviate them. A strong theme that emerges is that developing countries cannot be treated as a homogenous group from the viewpoint of their international financial problems. At the very least, a distinction needs to be drawn between the newly industrialising countries of Latin America and South-east Asia and the low income countries of Africa and Asia

The IMF and the future by Graham Bird( )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Monetary Fund has been criticised from both the right and the left of the political spectrum with the right arguing that it is too interventionist and creates more problems than it solves and the left on occasion demanding that it be abolished altogether. What seems almost beyond question is that the IMF needs to be reformed. Defining a future role for the IMF will always be a controversial issue, but vital to any considerations will be a measured assessment of how it has operated in the past. This excellent new book from an internationally respected expert on the IMF inte

Kant's theory of knowledge: an outline of one central argument in the Critique of pure reason by Graham Bird( Book )

25 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1962. Kant's philosophical works, and especially the Critique of Pure Reason, have had some influence on recent British philosophy. But the complexities of Kant's arguments, and the unfamiliarity of his vocabulary, inhibit understanding of his point of view. In 'Kant's Theory of Knowledge' an attempt is made to relate Kant's arguments in the 'Critique of Pure Reason' to contemporary issues by expressing them in a more modern idiom. The selection of issues discussed is intended to present a continuous argument, of an epistemological kind, which runs centrally through the Critique. The argument deals with essentially with the problems, raised in the 'Transcendental Analytic', about the status of categories. It deals with certain preliminary assumptions made in setting these problems, and discusses the way in which the various sections of the Analytic contribute to their solution. It also deals with Kant's criticisms of traditional metaphysics, and ends with an account of his effort in the 'Third Antinomy' to resolve the conflict between freedom and causality, and so to effect a transition of knowledge to moral philosophy
