This paper was prepared by W. Max Corden, Senior Advisor in the Fund’s Research Department. An earlier version was discussed by the Fund’s Executive Board in early 1987. The paper has benefited from comments by staff in the Research Department, other departments of the Fund, and by members of the Executive Board, and was edited by Mrs. Landell-Mills of the External Relations Department. The views expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views of the International Monetary Fund.
It should be noted that the term “country” used in this document does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice. The term also covers some territorial entities that are not states but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.
