The IMF and the future : issues and options facing the fund by Graham Bird( )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."

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

24 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and held by 597 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

The international monetary system and the less developed countries by Graham Bird( Book )

31 editions published between 1978 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author investigates the relationship between the international monetary system and the less developed countries of the world. In the period since 1945 growing concern has been shown over the international monetary problems which LDCs face, and since 1971 LDCs have been significant participants in the reform of the international monetary system. After tracing the evolution of the relationship between LDCs and the International Monetary Fund, the book goes on to examine, with full reference to the available empirical evidence, the major causes and consequences of LDCs' international monetary problems. Topics covered include: export instability; the terms of trade; the demand for reserves and reserve adequacy; and adjustment difficulties. A thorough examination is then made of the ways in which financial assistance has been provided to LDCs through the IMF and the Eurocurrency market. Finally, certain key policy issues are discussed: the commodity problem; the link between the creation of international liquidity and the provision of development aid; and exchange rate policy. Each chapter is followed by an extensive bibliography which is designed to help the reader to pursue further any topic of particular interest. The presentation, which is non-mathematical, is in the form of a textbook. The issues are surveyed, the main arguments discussed, and the available empirical evidence presented. It is revealed, however, that on many issues it is at present difficult to draw firm conclusions. The book will be of interest to students of international, monetary, and development economics

The IMF and the future by Graham Bird( )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 374 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
