Global Imbalances and Global Poverty: Challenges for the IMF

In his first address at a university since becoming managing director of the International Monetary Fund in 2004, Rodrigo de Rato discusses methods for improving macroeconomic and social imbalances worldwide. He argues that global poverty is at the heart of global imbalances and that the key to the success of improving economic imbalances is multilateral efforts by the United States, Europe, China and Japan to address and change policies.
