    The IMF launched the Economic Issues series in 1996 to make the IMF staffs research findings accessible to the public. Economic Issues are short, nontechnical monographs on topical issues written for the nonspecialist reader. They are published in six languages—English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, and Spanish. Economic Issue No. 32, like the others in the series, reflects the opinions of its authors, which are not necessarily those of the IMF.
