The views expressed in the paper are those of the author and not the official views of the International Monetary Fund. This paper evolved from a series of three articles published in Finance and Development in its December 1980, March 1981, and June 1981 issues. The author would like to thank his colleagues A.W. Hooke and J. Landell-Mills for their comments and suggestions.
In earlier versions (see Guitián (1981 a) and (1981 b)), the paper was presented in conferences on The IMF, the Third World and the Global Payments Problem (Croydon, England, October 1981) and on The International Monetary System in the Face of Payments Disequilibria—Adjustment and Financing (Paris, November 1981). It also benefited from discussions in graduate seminars at the departments of economics of the Universities of Chicago and Harvard.
