Most analysts see the IMF’s role in emerging market countries as being at a crossroads. In the mid- to late 1990s, when some of these countries experienced sudden reversals of capital inflows, they turned to the IMF for assistance. Mexico, for example, received a financial package in 1995 amounting to $17.49 billion and succeeded in getting its economy back on track. A handful of Asian countries subsequently succumbed to financial crisis in 1997–98, resolving their difficulties with IMF financial support.
