The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organisation of 188 countries that work together to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world. Through its economic surveillance, the IMF keeps track of the economic health of its member countries, alerting them to risks on the horizon and providing policy advice. It also lends funds to countries in difficulty, and provides technical assistance and training to help countries improve economic management.
The IMF is a trusted authority with decades of experience. Its data and reports are the most timely and reliable sources available on the global economy, and they are used every day by governments, academics, businesses, and the media.
The IMF eLibrary is the premier platform for IMF publications and statistical databases, offering the entire catalog of over 14,000 publications in one integrated environment. It simplifies analysis and research into economics and financial topics with direct access to the IMF's periodicals, books, working papers and studies, and data and statistical tools. The IMF eLibrary delivers information and perspective on macroeconomics, globalisation, development, trade and aid, demographics, emerging markets, policy advice, poverty reduction, and much more.
