The IMF is back in town! Hide the gold and jewelry! Really, the IMF is back in the ROK to make amends. WangKon936′s original posts on the “IMF Crisis” and this old piece by Joseph Stiglitz (in lieu of a review I wrote of book-length treatment from a grad school class) are useful backgrounders on why the IMF feels so contrite. It seems the IMF learned about burnishing its image and allowing others to criticize it.
