At a time when the world is moving toward the market, the bureaucratic response to government induced financial turmoil makes matters worse. The market is far more effective in enforcing conditions, promoting reform, and minimizing the risk of a crisis spreading in the near term or far into the future. The United States and other major donors should reject further funding for the IMF and in that way vote for a more stable and free global economy. That would send a signal to the world that the fund’s resources are not, in fact, unlimited.
