ICYMI, A powerful critique of the IMF's sleepiness from my @Cfr  colleague, @Brad_Setser  . What Role Should the IMF Play in Responding to COVID-19? via _org @CFR_org 

The IMF has just revised down its growth outlook. It declares, “The international community must vastly step up its support of national initiatives…” So why is the IMF itself not doing more? Again, I recommend the recent post by my colleague, @Brad_Setser 

If you look back to 1980, the only other time the world economy shrank was 2009--and then the shrinkage was one tenth of one percent. Today's IMF forecast for 2020 projects negative 4.9 percent globally, and negative 8 percent in the rich world.
