|October 14, 2012 -- IMF Survey: Eurozone: Carrying Out Agreed Policies Can Help Restore Confidence|

|September 17, 2012 -- IMF Survey: Global House Prices Still Showing Down Trend|
U.S. house prices have started to pick up but globally prices are still on a down trend, according to IMF research. Price trends vary widely between countries, with Ireland, Greece, Portugal, and Spain seeing the biggest falls in the past year and Brazil and Germany, substantial increases.
|April 24, 2012 -- IMF Survey: Tailored Approach to Debt and Growth Challenges in Europe’s Crisis Countries|
A build-up of debt after joining the euro zone led three very different countries to the doors of the International Monetary Fund as the global economic crisis took its toll on the Greek, Irish, and Portuguese economies.
|November 03, 2011 -- IMF Survey: Iceland's Unorthodox Policies Suggest Alternative Way Out of Crisis|
As policymakers continue to grapple with the problems facing the crisis-hit countries in the euro area and the clouded economic outlook for the global economy, attention has turned to Iceland, which three years ago saw its entire banking system crumble in just a few days.
|May 20, 2011 -- IMF Survey: Wider Plan Needed to Address Ireland's Problems|
The Irish government has been making good progress in addressing the country's deep-seated economic problems since it took office in March. But the IMF says that without comprehensive action from the European Union, Ireland and other euro area countries with programs will struggle to restore their access to the markets.
|April 17, 2011 -- IMF Survey: Solid Outlook for Europe But Debt, Banking Risks Remain|
The overall outlook for Europe is positive but there are still significant risks to the recovery, according to Antonio Borges, Director of the IMF's European Department. "Many European countries are doing very well, in particular in Eastern Europe where there is strong growth," he said.
|April 15, 2011 -- IMF Survey: IMF Support Helping Restore Growth but Key Risks Ahead|
A new study finds that countries which sought financial support from the IMF in late 2008, after the failure of Lehman Brothers, are experiencing a return to growth. IMF financing helped countries stabilize their economies when their access to financial markets was seriously curtailed.
|December 16, 2010 -- IMF Survey: IMF Approves €22.5 Billion Loan For Ireland|
The IMF's Executive Board has approved a three-year lending arrangement for Ireland, totaling €22.5 billion. The loan is part of an international rescue package worth €85 billion that also involves the European Union, European bilateral lenders, and financing from Ireland's own cash reserves.
|July 14, 2010 -- IMF Survey: After Deep Slump, Nascent Recovery for Ireland|
After a severe decline in late 2008 and 2009, the Irish economy has stabilized, and growth resumed in the first quarter of 2010. In an interview, Ashoka Mody, IMF mission chief for Ireland, speaks about the nascent recovery and the many challenges that still lie ahead.
|December 28, 2009 -- IMF Survey: Multi-Speed Recovery Seen for Europe|
As 2009 draws to a close, IMF European Department Director Marek Belka says that what is striking about Europe is how differently countries fared during the global crisis. These different points of departure will also make for a multi-speed recovery, Belka argues.
|March 00, 0002 -- IMF Survey: Continued Recovery for Ireland|
After three years of recession, Ireland’s economy is on a slow recovery path. Led by a pickup in exports, it saw growth turn positive in 2011. But the crisis is not over, with unemployment unacceptably high at more than 14 percent. The slowdown in other eurozone countries also hampers Ireland’s efforts to fully recover from its 2008 housing bust.
