Based on a conference held in September 2005 on the future of the International Monetary Fund, this important new book includes an overview of the challenges facing the IMF today. In addition, the authors offer a wide range of views on four areas: the international monetary system and the IMF (with an emphasis on enforcing and reforming the rules), governance (including representation), financial resources (the need for additional resources and how they should be supplied), and financing (including the role of IMF financing and the need for new facilities).

Book News
In September 2005, the Institute for International Economics brought together government officials, representatives of international financial institutions, and academics to address questions of how to restore the legitimacy of the International Monetary Fund as global organ of financial stability. Editor Truman (former director of the Division of International Finance of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from 1977 to 1998) has organized the resulting 29 papers into sections on the role of the IMF in the international monetary system, IMF governance, IMF lending facilities, IMF financial resources, and issues for the future.
