Title:The future of the IMF : how to prevent the next global financial crisis PDF Logo
Authors:Siebert, Horst
Issue Date:1998
Series/Report no.:Kiel Working Papers 870
Abstract:The paper analyzes how the next financial crisis can be prevented and which role the IMF should play. The paper distinguishes between the improvement of existing instruments and solving the moral hazard problem. Both issues are interrelated. The size of operation of the IMF creates a moral hazard problem. The IMF should credibly announce the ex-post rules for bridging a liquidity gap in order to set the right ex-ante incentives for the behavior of debtors and creditors. An institutional design for dealing with private and sovereign debt analogous to national bankruptcy rules has to be developed.
