COC Reactions to the Spring World Bank-IMF Meetings (Spring 2002)

The recent spring meetings of the World Bank and IMF drew large crowds of demonstrators. Many Center staff joined in the large Mobilization marches of the weekend. Having reviewed the communiques of the World Bank/IMF meetings, we offer both compliments and serious comments. We welcome comments regarding the Millennium Development Goals and the recognition that education is critical to the reduction of poverty. We question what is meant by sound policies and good governance. We ask that any debt analysis include the impact of debt relief on the Development Goals. But most importantly, we are very concerned that the Fund totally neglected its responsibility in the Argentinian crisis. Where is the soul searching?
