"The International Monetary Fund"
Introduction You have already learned that industrialized nations provide external funding to the developing countries. This financing can be direct aid, or it could be indirect aid to international agencies such as the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Countries wanting to set up an international system of fixed exchange rates formed the IMF in 1944. Today, the IMF offers advice to all nations on monetary and fiscal policies. It also helps support the currency of some developing nations with loans so that the countries can compete in an open market.
