Abstract

This paper assesses the current size and composition of the global financial safety net, and the respective roles of the IMF, regional and bilateral arrangements. It argues that global economic policymakers, through the G20, must work to ensure that the IMF remains at the centre of the institutional framework providing the safety net.
