IMF Reform Effective: There Is Quite a Fight Ahead

The 2010 IMF quota and governance reforms took effect on January 26. Approved by the IMF's Board of Governors in 2010, they will double the IMF's quota and reallocate quota and voting shares. This will better reflect the changes in relative weights of the IMF member countries in the global economy...

The West Is Reduced To Looting Itself - Paul Craig Roberts

Myself, Michael Hudson, John Perkins, and a few others have reported the multi-pronged looting of peoples by Western economic institutions, principally the big New York Banks with the aid of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Why Has US Decided to Destroy IMF?

As we know, last December the International Monetary Fund – under pressure from its biggest shareholder, the United States – made a major change to the rules that govern its operations. From now on, the IMF can continue to work with countries that for one reason or another do not meet their obligations to the fund’s members (their official creditors)...

New Year Begins with Abysmal Performances

From the very outset, the new year of 2016 has set negative financial and economic dynamics. For the Chinese stock market, 4 January was the worst first trading day of the year in the entire history of the national stock market, which saw the market plunge by 7 per cent. As a result of the sharp fall, meanwhile, trading was halted twice. After the Shanghai Composite fell by 5 per cent, trading was stopped on the Shanghai stock exchange for 15 minutes...

International Finance: Legacy of 2015

Despite their varied nature, when viewed as a whole, the mechanisms at work in 2015 in international finance were so significant that they could alter the entire architecture of the global financial system in 2016. And it is unlikely that there is along period of transition ahead. Chances are that the global financial transformation will happen quickly and dramatically...

Christine Lagarde Takes the Stage for the Last Time?

In recent years, the work of the International Monetary Fund has become a never-ending drama, directed by Washington, which is also known as «the main shareholder of the joint-stock company» known as the IMF. All the other shareholders, as well as the fund’s staffers, are assigned the role of actors in a play written by Uncle Sam...

Ukraine’s Bankruptcy. Help from Abroad Won’t Come

On Dec. 18 the Ukrainian government officially announced its refusal to repay its $3 billion debt to Russia. Repayment was due Dec. 20. Kiev also refused to pay both the $75 million in interest on the debt, as well as the additional $507 million that two Ukrainian companies still owe to Russian banks (the Ukrainian government had promised to back those firms’ debts)...

Ukraine’s Lifelines

No matter what Ukraine’s leaders might do in the way of reducing their country to economic and administrative chaos and ramping up tension with Russia, the countries of the US-NATO military alliance continue to support the Kiev government in anti-Russian bluster – even when its posture is patently absurd...

Global Financial Order Could Utterly Collapse on Dec. 21

The world is entering a chaotic phase. There have been recent claims that the US has begun to create «manageable chaos» globally. But events in the Middle East have dispelled the illusion that the instigator of this chaos is capable of managing it. And that unmanageable chaos may very soon overtake the world of international finance. The US is once again guilty of having ushered in unmanageable financial chaos, and Ukraine’s $3 billion debt to Russia will serve to detonate the process...

Dollar and Yuan: Two Versions of China’s Monetary Policy

There is much that is paradoxical and contradictory in the monetary policies of the world’s two biggest economies – the US and China. The US, for example, accuses China of devaluing the yuan and thereby artificially stimulating its exports. America is unhappy when Beijing plays at devaluing its currency, as well as when China props it up, or at least keeps it afloat.

Turkey: Treaty Commitments Breached as Ankara Prepares for Military Solution in Syria

The Russian military said on February 4 that it has "reasonable grounds" to suspect that Turkey   is making intensive preparations for a military invasion of neighboring Syria. Images of a checkpoint on the border between the Turkish town of Reyhanli and the town of Sarmada in Syrian taken in late October and late January show a buildup of transportation infrastructure that could be used for moving in troops, ammunition and weapons, spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said in an English-language written statement...
