Description: This Web site is the home page of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The IMF is an international organization of 184 member countries that was established to promote international monetary cooperation, exchange stability, and orderly exchange arrangements; to foster economic growth and high levels of employment; and to provide temporary financial assistance to countries to help ease balance of payments adjustment. Users can read about the IMF, view data, access a glossary of financial terms, and more. There is even a special section for students. This resource is referenced in the Xpeditions lesson titled "Island Culture and Vulnerability."
