Summary note:
"The IMF and the World Bank at Sixty presents a selection of essays prepared for the Group of Twenty-Four Developing Nations (G24), by some of the foremost authorities in their fields, which address these challenges and suggest the need for reform in several areas. Ariel Buira's introduction presents a critical overview of the functioning of the IMF and the international monetary system, underscoring a number of shortcomings that could be remedied to make it more supportive of development through changes in governance. The other essays focus on two areas: financial issues, particularly the prevention of financial crises; and secondly, the policies of the Bretton Woods institutions. All these essays have one fundamental aim: to improve the functioning of the global economy and to better enable the developing countries to share in the gains in prosperity of recent decades."--Jacket.
