IMF's Lagarde bangs the same old drum on fixing the global economy

IMF Chief speaking on emerging and developing markets

  • Softening of global growth, capital outflows and stock market declines are cause for concern
  • Oil and metal prices are likely to stay low for quite some time
  • Fall in prices pressuring commodity export countries
  • Emerging markets could soften shocks by boosting non-commodity revenues and increasing exchange rate flexibility
  • Advanced economies should support growth through accommodative monetary policy and infrastructure spending
  • Important for Fed to normalise policy in a prudent and well-communicated manner
  • IMF will consider broadening and strengthening precautionary financing instruments

Same old same old. If the jobs no good, get another one, if it's not working throw money at it.
