Please nominate 2012 best Bankspeak and resources

6 December 2012

According to a much-heralded tradition, each year our first issue of the Bretton Woods Update features ‘Bankspeak of the year’ – the most incomprehensible or absurd use of words in a World Bank or IMF document or speech. 2012 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 2012. Suggestions from readers for both features are requested.


Send your suggestions to bankspeak@brettonwoodsproject.org
