This week co-host David Welch speaks with Visiting Fulbright Scholar Martin Edwards on the surveillance of the global economy. An expert on the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Edwards shares a historical context of the Fund before discussing issues of transparency both in internal and external processes. What changes could improve surveillance of the global economy? Who is holding the IMF's "feet to the fire"? Should civil society be more involved in conversations and policy directions at the IMF? Tune in for the full discussion.
The Inside the Issues podcast will be on hiatus for the next few weeks over the holiday period, returning in early January 2014.
