Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1970. The report highlights that the performance of the world economy during 1969 and early 1970 was marked by severe inflation pressures and, at the same time, by a series of developments serving to improve the adjustment of payments imbalances in several major countries and to strengthen the international monetary system. World output and trade expanded vigorously, and, in a setting of high demand pressures and rapid price increases, interest rates soared to extraordinary levels.

Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1969. The report highlights that rapid expansion and financial imbalance were the main features of the performance of the world economy during 1968 and the first half of 1969. Output and trade in the industrial countries registered a sharp advance, imparting economic stimulus to the primary producing countries. Several of the industrial countries encountered severe balance-of-payments difficulties, and the international financial scene was marred by recurrent crises in foreign exchange markets.

Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1968. The report highlights that the performance of the world economy during 1967 was characterized by a mixture of marked progress and serious difficulty. The immediate challenge to stem and reverse the slowdown in economic activity that had begun in 1966 was met effectively. However, the deceleration and subsequent recovery in the trend of activity were accompanied by and contributed to balance-of-payments developments that aggravated longstanding problems.

Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1965. The report highlights that in many respects, the year 1964 was a highly satisfactory one for the world economy. World industrial production and, in particular, international trade—including the exports of the primary producing countries—were substantially higher than in the preceding year. However, within 1964, there was a slowing down of economic activity in several major countries, and the rate of increase in world trade was somewhat lower than during the preceding year.

Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1963. The report highlights that during the course of 1962, economic activity continued to expand in most industrial countries. In the United States, there was some slowdown in production, but final purchases rose almost as much as during 1961, and a revival of activity set in during the early part of 1963. In continental Europe, a climate of general prosperity continued to prevail.

Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1962. The report highlights that the year 1961 was one of general expansion in the industrial countries. In the United States and Canada, industrial production and real national product resumed their upward course during the spring of 1961, following the mild recession of 1960. Expansion continued in Europe and Japan, although at a slower rate than in the earlier year, as production approached the limits of the available supplies of labor.

Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1959. The report highlights that the year that ended on April 30, 1959, stands out not only because of the marked changes that occurred in general business activity and in the international flow of funds, but also because important steps were taken to consolidate the monetary improvements achieved since the war and to strengthen the financial structure of the world economy.

Abstract

This paper reviews key findings of the IMF’s Annual Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1954. The report highlights that downward trend in the volume of world trade that had appeared early in 1952 was reversed in 1953, and in the last three quarters of that year, the rate of both the volume and the value of world trade exceeded that of 1952. The pattern of recovery, moreover, was such that it eased substantially the balance-of-payments disequilibrium.
