Summary

Established during the rebuilding period after World War II, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund often work in concert to address the challenges of global poverty and development by providing loans and other financial assistance to developing nations. In addition to providing an accessible and succinct overview of the history and operations of these global organizations, The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund relates the work of these organizations to such timely issues as debt servicing; gender equality; microcredit; HIV/AIDS awareness, treatment, and prevention programs; and the Millennium Development Goals. A key resource for those who want to know more about global citizenship, this new book profiles leaders and community groups that are making positive changes to address poverty and underdevelopment. Ideas for effective and active global citizenship are also highlighted in this title.
