Please nominate 2009 best Bankspeak and resources

20 November 2009

As per long-standing convention, the first issue of the Bretton Woods Update in the new year will feature ‘Bankspeak of the year’ – the most incomprehensible or absurd use of words in a World Bank or IMF document or speech. 2009 should elicit many nominations given the resurgence of the IFIs. Also, we will present your list of recommended resources – the best of books, reports and articles written about the work of the Bank and Fund in 2009. Suggestions from readers for both features are requested.


Send your suggestions to bankspeak@brettonwoodsproject.org
