Summary: The Fund continues to be criticized for squeezing social spending in developing countries. This paper will examine trends in health and education spending in countries with and without Fund-supported programs during 1980 and 2009. Using various quantitative techniques, the analysis will center on real per capita spending, as well as changes in relation to GDP and total government spending.
