Finance & Development March issue

The March issue of Finance & Development, which will be available shortly, focuses on the remarkably successful reform and recovery in Latin America and the Caribbean in the wake of the economic crises of the past few years. The articles, including several by finance ministers or central bank governors from the region, discuss the progress made in these countries and the global implications of their experiences.

An article by IMF Historian James Boughton offers a preliminary assessment of Michel Camdessus’s 13 years as Managing Director of the IMF, highlighting his personal qualities and his contributions in the international sphere. Among the articles in this issue are
