Authors

Synopsis

Written by the Director of the Economic Affairs Division at the Commonwealth Secretariat, this discussion paper explains some of the truly international aspects of the global economic crisis that go beyond the headline news. It discusses the nature of the crisis and its implications, especially the impact on the smaller, poorer and most vulnerable developing countries, and the responses from both the Commonwealth and from the international community (the World Bank Group, the International Monetary Fund and regional development banks).
