Responding to readers’ comments in our recent Bretton Woods Update survey, this issue incorporates two changes. Aurélio Vianna, of Rede Brasil, comments on the role of the IMF on page three. On page four, we have included a map of the new trade department at the Bank, in response to demands for more users’ guides to how the institutions work on specific issues. We will be continuing with these features, as well as offering inserts in future issues with condensed briefings on important debates. Send submissions for future comment pieces and suggestions of items to cover in users’ guide format to Jeff Powell.
A new section of the Bretton Woods Project’s website on UK decision-making in the World Bank and IMF has been launched.
