Publication: “A Global Shared Societies Agenda: The Role of the International Monetary Fund”

Jack Boorman
FES Perspective, June 2012

This paper  poses  timely and important questions about the social and political challenges
presented by inequality and the global economic policy framework needed to support and nurture equitable development and Shared Societies.  The author’s participation in  the multi-year project organized by FES-New York, Club de Madrid and Center of Concern is a reflection upon which way the causality with regard to shared societies and economic vitality runs.  Does the promotion of equitable and shared societies produce sustainable development and growth? Or does sustainable growth promote equity? These questions lie at the heart of political debates in many countries, but according to the author, there is increasing evidence supporting the first proposition.
