How the IMF Tracks Economies and Makes LoansStreaming Video - 2005
In IMF parlance, what does "surveillance" mean? And how does the IMF decide who gets a loan? This program describes how the IMF monitors national economic policies for their impact on the Fund's 180-plus member nations and how loans are made to ailing or emerging economies. Topics under consideration include Article IV consultations and poverty- and debt-reduction initiatives. Former IMF Managing Director Michel Camdessus; Edwin Truman, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs; IMF economist David Goldsbrough; and IMF historian Jim Boughton are featured.
