    This seminar applies economic principles and political-economy approaches to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The politics of the Bretton Woods Institutions affect an ever-increasing number of people. To understand these effects, we need to study the decision-making processes and patterns of policy making of these organizations in a systematic and detailed fashion.
