Silent Revolution: The International Monetary Fund, 1979-89

Author/Editor: Boughton, James M.
Published: October 9, 2001
Electronic Access: Free Full Text

Summary: This volume, fourth in a series of periodic histories of the institution, is as much a history of the world economy during 1979-89 as one of the IMF itself. Boughton discusses the IMF’s surveillance of the international monetary system in the 1980s; the Fund’s role in the international debt crisis of the 1980s, and IMF lending in support of structural adjustment in low-income countries during that period. The volume concludes with a general history of the institution, including the quota system, the SDR, membership, and other institutional matters.
