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.

International Monetary Fund

Abstract

Designed to meet the basic needs of economists and statisticians, this pamphlet is unique in providing an explanation of the key principles underlying macroeconomic statistics when viewed as an integrated system. It highlights the interrelationships between the various sectors and provides a bridge linking the various macroeconomic accounts statistics-national accounts, balance of payments, government finance statistics, and monetary and financial statistics-to assist the reader in understanding the main concepts underlying these statistics. It does so by simplifying many of the concepts, explaining common features and differences, showing how the four key statistical areas harmonize, and providing examples to demonstrate the practical application and uses of the concepts within the conceptual framework. The pamphlet completely updates Pamphlet No. 29, Macroeconomic Accounts: An Overview, by Poul Hølst-Madsen, which was published in 1985.

International Monetary Fund

Abstract

This paper, prepared by a working group of IMF staff, provides a preliminary assessment of the risks and potential impact to the global economy and financial system from a possible avian flu pandemic, discusses the IMF’s role in helping member countries prepare their economic and financial systems for such a pandemic, and summarizes common elements of business continuity planning in the financial sector

International Monetary Fund

Abstract

This paper discusses reasons functions of the IMF, why it needs more resources, and how these resources will be used. The IMF provides a forum for cooperation, having as its objective the balanced expansion of international trade in order to stimulate employment and improve economic conditions in its member countries. In its relations with its members, the IMF seeks to promote sound policies through advice as well as by providing technical assistance in many fields. The IMF has facilitated negotiations between debtors and creditors on the types and terms of financing agreements. It has also participated in the debt-restructuring agreements with commercial banks. The restoration of growth in developing countries is essential not only for the sake of the well-being of these countries but also in the interest of the global community. Thus, the IMF must be responsive in meeting the needs of all its members, not solely those in crisis situations. Good economic management is all-important and for this to be effective, however, it must be supported by adequate financing.

International Monetary Fund

Abstract

An introductory guide to the IMF’s technical assistance. Providing technical assistance to member countries-particularly developing countries and countries in transition-is at the core of the IMF’s mission. Technical assistance, which includes training for government and central banks officials, is one of the benefits of IMFmembership. It complements and enhances the IMF's other key forms of assistance, i.e., surveillance and lending. The IMF provides technical assistance mainly in its areas of expertise and responsibility: fiscal policy, monetary policy, and macroeconomic and financial statistics.
