This quarterly bulletin selectively summarizes key components of research done at the IMF and provides a listing of research documents and other research-related activities, including IMF conferences and seminars.
This issue of the IMF Research Bulletin features recommended readings from IMF Publications and an update on recent IMF Working Papers and IMF Staff Discussion Notes. It also includes a special announcement welcoming Linda Tesar (University of Michigan) as the new editor of 'IMF Economic Review.' The Q&A section explores 'Seven Questions on China-Africa Relations' (Luiz Almeida, Wenjie Chen, and Oral Williams). The Research Summaries surveys 'Income Polarization in the United States' (Ali Alichi, Kory Kantenga, and Juan Sole); and 'The Future Wealth of Nations: World Trade in Services' (Prakash Loungani, Saurabh Mishra, Chris Papageorgiou, and Ke Wang).
