The very first Geneva Report, An Independent and Accountable IMF was published in September 1999. For this 20th report the same group of authors have reunited to survey changes in the global economy and the IMF. They find that the earlier trend toward globalisation has continued and the IMF has adapted, but there are new challenges.

Twenty years ago, ICMB and CEPR published the first Geneva Report on the World Economy. Over these last two decades, the world of international finance has changed and so too has the IMF. This column introduces the latest report, in which the same team of authors highlight seven key developments affecting the monetary and financial environment and their implications for the Fund.

The world needs a watchdog institution for global economic stability. Most agree that the IMF is the only serious candidate, but IMF management and staff need more independence. This column argues that this could be achieved by having separate Executive Board voting procedures for lending and analytic decisions, and some independent members on the Board.
