YPFP London: How to Spend It - Challenges for the IMF
The crisis ridden world of sovereign debt has turned the spotlight on the lender of last resort in public finance - the IMF. With the recent injection of $430 billion of funds to the institution, hotly debated loans to bail-out flailing economies and threats from the BRICs to set up parallel institutions - Christine LaGarde's presidency is facing significant challenges in policy and practice.
Join us to discuss the implications, with panellists including Philip Wood QC (Special Global Counsel at Allen & Overy LLP and a leading expert in comparative and cross-border law) and Mark Reckless MP of the Conservative Party.
This event is open to everyone.
