Economic Theory and Financial Policy

by James M. Boughton

Two previous collections of the works of Polak (a chief economist at the International Monetary Fund from 1958 to 1979) have collected virtually all of his published work through the early 1990s. This collection of 14 papers brings his career more up-to-date by publishing most of the remaining papers of the 1990s, covering various aspects of international financial policy. Papers grouped in a section exploring the role of the International Monetary Fund cover such topics as the history of exchange rate research at the IMF, relations between the IMF and the countries of the euro zone, and relations between the World Bank and the IMF. Other papers consider issues of Special Drawing Rights, which Polak helped create as a new type of international reserve asset. A final group of papers discuss the policy implications of monetary models. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

Tearing Down Walls

by James M. Boughton

This volume - the fifth in a series of histories of the International Monetary Fund - examines the 1990s, a tumultuous decade in which the IMF faced difficult challenges and took on new and expanded roles. Among these were assisting countries that had long operated under central planning to manage transitions toward market economies, helping countries in financial crisis after sudden loss of support from private financial markets, adapting surveillance to reflect the growing acceptance of international standards for economic and financial policies, helping low-income countries grow and begin to eradicate poverty while staying within its mandate as a monetary institution, and providing adequate financial assistance to members in an age of limited official resources. The IMF's successes and setbacks in facing these challenges provide valuable lessons for an uncertain future.
