The IMF has been on its way out of the Greek Rescue programme for a while now.
The band-of-bandits of Mr Tsipras is getting ready to celebrate ousting the IMF. Before you join in the dance in Syntagma Square, listen to my podcast on what the IMF is, what it does and what it did (and did not do) in Greece.
This is a February 2017 lecture on what the IMF is and what it does. The discussion on the role of the IMF in Greece is from 44’30” onwards.
Enjoy and feel free to comment using the discussion options in this post.
We spend a lot of time lecturing about exciting subjects to a captive audience, that may or may not be interested, but one that certainly pays a lot to be there.
Lately there is emphasis on free, open-source content, both in terms of articles and in terms of freely available lectures or podcasts.
I am doing my bit for universal enlightenment by making my older papers available on SSRN and Academia.edu
Also, I have prepared a few podcasts, the latest of which on the Rule of Law, Development and the role of Dispute Resolution, which you can access here. It is a talking prezi, that I hope is easy to navigate.
