Gotta Love Churchill!!!

"I contend that a country trying to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle". - Winston Churchill

In the recent G20 meetings there was an extreme amount of authority given to the IMF. One big problem I have had with the IMF is the amount of stipulations they give to those countries they aid. Micromanaging the insufficient amounts of money they do give so the countries lose the ability to spend the money on the things they need and instead have to spend money on the needs the IMF perceives they need. The IMF has said it will give more aid with fewer stipulations. I'd love to hear your opinions on the G20 and the IMF.
