Shanta, if you flinched at the issues arising from the debate, let me say that I cringe whenever i get the impression that donors (especially the IFIs)are trying to force down policy presriptions down the throats of helpless countries -precriptions they are not sure about. The careful and humble response by economists to explaining the financial crisis and proffering solutions should inform their dealings with poorer countries as well. After all, these countries have for a significant part of their existence suffered serious bouts of macroeconomic challenges. In the midst of the so-called "technical advice", countries must be allowed to think for themselves. Chachu, Accra, Ghana
