Lessons from the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Editor: jean A. P. Clément

This remarkable turnaround offers other countries and the international community valuable lessons in preventing conflict and in coping with postconflict recovery. This book also provides a summary of the most recent research on conflict, an analysis of the causes of conflicts in Africa, and an outline of their key economic characteristics.

Reconstructing Afghanistan

Editor: Adam Bennett; By Bruno de Schaetzen, Louis DicksMireaux, Felix Fischer, Thierry Kalfon, and Ron van Rooden

After more than two decades of conflict, a new opportunity emerged for the peaceful development and, therefore, economic recovery of Afghanistan. Reconstructing Afghanistan, which reflects the IMF staff’s work in Afghanistan in 2002 through the first quarter of 2004, explores the country’s institutional and economic achievements during the post-Taliban years. During this period, the staff helped the Afghan authorities quickly establish a basic framework for economic management and policies, including rebuilding key institutions.

Helping Countries Develop

The Role of Fiscal Policy

Editors: Sanjeev Gupta, Benedict Clements, and Gabriela Inchauste

Fiscal policy can foster growth and human development through a number of different channels. Buthow precisely do these channels work in developing countries? What kind of tax and expenditure policies should developing countries implement to help them meet the Millennium Development Goals? And how can international aid be made more effective? Drawing on both theory and country experience, this book brings together IMF research on the various ways that fiscal policy can be used to help spur economic development.
