Editorial Reviews

The world economy has performed well over the past half century, indeed better than ever before, although not without some bumps. Will international monetary arrangements serve the world economy well in the coming decades? This volume addresses that vital issue, providing diagnoses and prognostications from diverse perspectives, along with suggestions for reform, varying from modest redirection to radical overhaul. A significant contribution to an important debate.Richard N. Cooper, Harvard UniversityDiscussion on the reform of the international monetary system has revived in the past several years, stimulated by a new recognition of how important monetary relations are in the world economy and promoted by the analysis undertaken for the World Economic Forum. A selection of the papers written for this ongoing global dialogue are available in this volume to the general public, and display the scope of the issues and the eminence of many of the authors on whom the Forum has called. There could be no better way of remaining abreast of these issues than to ponder these pages. John Williamson, Peterson Institute for International EconomicsThis is an excellent volume that presents important new contributions to the debate on the reform of the international monetary and financial system. In addition to thoughtful analyses of the weakness of the current system, many contributions provide innovative ideas on how to reform the IMF and the international financial system, so it can deal with the challenges of real and financial integration in a globalized world. This is a high quality series of discussions, analyses, and reform proposals from leading academics, researchers, policy makers, and private sector participants.
