This study focuses on issues of international measures to prevent and better manage economic crises and discusses their relevance for the poorest countries. Among the measures are the creation of the Financial Stability Forum and new IMF-facilities such as the Credit Contingency Line. The study also examines why the traditional emphasis on crisis management needs to be changed to the management of booms.
