IMF Legitimacy: Principles and Institutions
This chapter will introduce the IMF and explore the core logic of the way it claims to operate. lt pays particular attention to the relationship between the role the Fund was designed to perform and the institutional arrangements that shape its decision-making. Why does the IMF argue countries should do what it tells them? What reasons does it give? What is their logic and how convincing are they? In particular, are the kinds of authority embedded in Fund institutions appropriate for the tasks that it is carrying out?
