Mr. James M. Boughton

Abstract

The world and the IMF have undergone profound changes since the Bretton Woods Conference. James Boughton, former historian of the IMF, looks at key events that have shaped the IMF and the international scene. From the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 to the Great Recession, this essay focuses on 11 events in history that have influenced the design and work of the IMF, as well as the international monetary system. This booklet, prepared for the 70th anniversary of the IMF, is an excerpt from a longer essay that is available on the IMF eLibrary. It is an excellent primer on the motivation behind the founding of the IMF and the evolution of the organization.

International Monetary Fund

Abstract

This paper reports the second event organized by the Per Jacobsson Foundation in 2008 that took place on Sunday, October 12, in the auditorium of the International Finance Corporation in Washington, DC, in the context of the Annual Meetings of the IMF and the World Bank. From time to time—usually every two years—an additional event is organized in conjunction with the Bank for International Settlements and held in the context of its Annual General Meeting in Switzerland. The Per Jacobsson Foundation was established in 1964 to commemorate the work of Per Jacobsson, the third Managing Director of the IMF (1956–1963) and prior to that, the head of the Monetary and Economic Department of the Bank for International Settlements (1931–1956). The main purposes of the Foundation are to foster and stimulate discussion of international monetary problems, to support basic research in this field, and to disseminate the results of these activities.

International Monetary Fund

Abstract

Conçue pour répondre aux besoins des économistes et statisticiens, cette brochure unique offre un tour d’horizon des principes fondamentaux sur lesquels reposent les statistiques macroéconomiques, vues comme un ensemble intégré. Elle met en lumière les relations entre les différents secteurs et établit des liens entre les différents systèmes de statistiques macroéconomiques — les comptes nationaux, la balance des paiements, les statistiques de finances publiques et les statistiques monétaires et financières — afin d'aider le lecteur à comprendre les principaux concepts sous-tendant ces statistiques. Pour ce faire, elle simplifie nombre de concepts, présente les points communs et les différences, montre comment les quatre grands ensembles statistiques s'articulent de façon harmonisée, et présente des exemples illustrant l'application pratique l'utilisation des concepts à des fins analytiques. Elle constitue une mise à jour en profondeur de la brochure n° 29, « Comptes macroéconomiques : un aperçu », rédigée par Poul Høst-Madsen et publiée en 1985.
