I really enjoy the threads on people's views of the world on a large scale. I think they are much more productive than the bitching about whatever is going in the news. So, I was wondering what everyone thought of the IMF and World Bank, do you guys think that debt relief for the HIPC countries should be a goal for these orgs...
I know we have some pretty distinct viewpoints on stuff like this. It'd be interesting to see where people stand.
I'm a huge believer in debt relief. It helps stabilize the countries. For many countries, they are stuck in a single currency debt denomination system, which their currency continues to depreciate against the currency the debt is denominated in.
The reason I brought this up, is that I'm in the middle of writing a policy paper for a political candidate and this is where my head is.
