Review of IMF Work on Trade: is the IEO listening ? (November 2008)

The IEO final issues paper for the Evaluation of the IMF Approach to International Trade (“the IEO Paper”) was released during the summer, and is posted at http://www.ieo-imf.org/eval/ongoing/Trade_IP.pdf. Previously, a number of CSOs had submitted a paper with comments on the original paper (“the CSO Comments”) , posted at  http://www.coc.org/system/files/IEO+Evaluation-Comments-Final-05-08.pdf.

The article is a quick survey of highlights that emerge in assessing the final IEO issues paper for the evaluation from the standpoint of the comments submitted at that time.
