The IMF and the Asian Crisis: A View from the Executive Board

  • Karin Lissakers

Abstract

I want to look back, and tell you, briefly, how the Asian crisis looked from the perspective of a member of the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund. Thanks to the IMF’s vaunted secrecy, many of you may not even know that there is an Executive Board—24 directors representing 182 member countries—which decides all major fund policies and approves all programs and disbursements of fund resources. Several of my board colleagues are here tonight.
