In A Thousand Cuts, Alexandros Kentikelenis and Thomas Stubbs provide a comprehensive analysis of IMF policies around the world. Based on novel data from the IMF archives, Kentikelenis and Stubbs have generated a replicable database of all IMF-mandated reforms from 1980-2019 to examine their effects on social policies and outcomes. They reveal that although the precise content of IMF-mandated austerity has changed over time, the organization continues to place a high burden of reform on countries in crisis. These reforms then decrease the availability of important social services and contribute to rises in income inequality and declines in population health.
This website presents data on the activities of the IMF compiled and published by academics and civil society.
