Corporate Program past event

The International Monetary Fund faces a host of hurdles as the financial crisis gradually winds down, and developed and developing economies alike anticipate a sustained period of decreased growth. IMF First Deputy Managing Director John Lipsky joins us to discuss key tasks confronting the world’s lender of last resort, which underwent a significant strengthening of its role and lending capacity at the April G20 meeting in London. Such challenges include restoring global growth on a more balanced and sustainable basis while preserving open global markets, and seeking to combat social strains wrought by the Great Recession. Reforming the global financial system, establishing effective global economic and financial governance, and addressing acute future fiscal challenges will also receive special scrutiny.
