For the latest thinking about the international financial system, monetary policy, economic development, poverty reduction, and other critical issues, subscribe to Finance & Development (F&D). This lively quarterly magazine brings you in-depth analyses of these and other subjects by the IMF’s own staff as well as by prominent international experts. Articles are written for lay readers who want to enrich their understanding of the workings of the global economy and the policies and activities of the IMF.

Do IMF-supported adjustment programs pay enough attention to growth? Does the IMF favor a big-bang approach over gradual adjustment? And, why does the institution shy away from recommending the kind of interventionist industrial policies that appear to have worked well in Hast Asia? These questions and others were put to IMF staff by leading Japanese academics and policymakers at a seminar on Macroeconomic Adjustment and Growth held in Tokyo on May 21–22. The seminar—jointly sponsored by the IMF and the Institute of Fiscal and Monetary Policy of Japan’s Ministry of Finance—sought to shed light on differences of view between influential Japanese and IMF staff on the advice the IMF gives to countries.
