About this book


The book examines the operation of International Monetary Fund and World Bank conditionality in six developing countries (Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Mexico and Tanzania) and examines its effects on their economies. It draws conclusions and policy lessons for all developing countries as regards the operation of adjustment policies. The book also examines the regulatory treatment of Third World debt, both in the US, Canada and Europe, making specific policy suggestions for increasing flexibility in debt management.
