Abstract

PEREIRA, João Márcio Mendes. The 2000 Meltzer Report and the World Bank and IMF reform. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2011, vol.54, n.2, pp. 118-137. ISSN 0034-7329.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-73292011000200006.

The article discusses the propositions of the Meltzer Report for the reform of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. This report came from the work conducted between 1998 and 2000 by a Commission from the North American Congress. Afterwards, it discusses the reply from the American Treasury to those propositions and shows how some of them were selectively implemented by the George W. Bush administration.

Keywords : World Bank; IMF; George W. Bush administration; Meltzer report; U.S. Treasury.
