This ambitious book provides a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative assessment of Jamaica's ties to the International Monetary Fund, focusing on Jamaica's historical relationship with the IMF and reflecting on the domestic and international discourse surrounding the evolution of this relationship. Notably, this volume presents a critical analysis of Jamaica's first engagement with and departure from the IMF and interrogates the political economy of the period. Jamaica's economic experiences are assessed in the context of major global events, including the food price crises of 2007 and the global economic crises of 2008 and 2009. This book also looks at policy implications, and its well-researched analysis will be of great value to practitioners and policymakers as well as academics
