The second in the Writers in Residence series is about the IMF and is really interesting. Lots of interesting anecdotes about the history of the IMF.

The latest one was that bankers started going to the annual IMF conference because it brought together many developing world finance ministers. As a public body the IMF was susceptible to protests and therefore the bankers abandoned it for the stricter (and less democratic) Davos Economic forum.
