IMF Deputy Krueger to Speak at Yale University

Anne O. Krueger, the first deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), will give a lecture on Wednesday, March 26 at 4:30 p.m. in the Lecture Hall of the Sterling Memorial Library (Wall Street library entrance).

The lecture, “Dilemmas in IMF Policy Design,” sponsored by the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization is free and open to the public.

Krueger, the second highest ranking official at the IMF, is the first woman to hold a senior management role in that institution. She has been at the forefront of the International Monetary Fund’s dealings with Argentina, Brazil and Turkey.

One of Ms. Krueger’s notable achievements has been to institute reform of the international financial system by developing a mechanism for restructuring sovereign debt - an international bankruptcy court - that helps countries emerge from financial crises in a more orderly way.

Before the IMF, Krueger was a professor in the Economics Department at Stanford University and was the director of its Center for Research on Economic Development and Policy Reform. A past president of the American Economic Association and former vice president for economics and research at the World Bank, Krueger has published extensively on policy reform in developing countries, the role of multilateral institutions in the international economy, and the political economy of trade policy.

The Yale Center for the Study of Globalization, headed by Ernesto Zedillo, is devoted to examining the effect of an increasingly integrated world on individuals, communities and nations. For more information on the lecture or the Center please call 432-1900 or e-mail
