Whither the World Bank and the IMF?
On their fiftieth anniversary, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank were" extensively reviewed, both to mark the occasion and to consider, often critically roles and performance. This paper reviews the functions of the two institutions in light of their" evolution over the past fifty years and of changes in the international economic system. It then" evaluates and assesses some of the criticisms and proposals for reform of the two institutions."
