TITLE: The international monetary fund [videorecording] : financial cure or catstrophe?
PUBLISHED: NJ : Films for the Humanities, 1999.
DESCRIPTION: 1 videocassette (35 min.) : sd., col. ; 1/2 in.
NOTES: As the world's economies tumble, the IMF is scrambling to avert a global recession - if it can. In this critical examination, leading financial experts - including economist Jeffrey Sachs, Paul Krugman of MIT, and the IMF's Stanley Fischer - reveal the IMF's ignorance of basic economic realities. This program highlights the Asiann crisis, in which the IMF's one-size-fits-all policy recommendations and faulty judgment apparently worsened the economies it hoped to assist. Issues such as conflicts of interest, charges of corruption, and political heavy-handedness are prompting the CATO Institute and others to call for an end to the IMF, especially in light of the Russian financial fiasco, which has left the IMF holding valueless promissory notes worth millions.
NOTES: English.
ADDED ENTRY: Films for the Humanities and Sciences.
