Economists in International Agencies: An Exploratory Study

By A. W. Coats (NHC Fellow, 1983–84)

New York: Praeger, 1986

From the publisher’s description:

This work analyzes the activities and influence of professional economists in international agencies exploring: what positions economists occupy, including the role they play in policy decisions; how economists are recruited and trained; and how cultural and ideological backgrounds influence their assimilation into the agency. Focusing on the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, GATT, and COED, Economists in International Agencies is the first work to isolate and define the role of economists in international agencies.
