The International Monetary Fund wrapped up meetings with its coffers The International Monetary Fund wrapped up meetings with its coffers to fight the eurozone crisis $430 billion richer. But it also collected a message from the emerging economies that contributed that it should not easily throw more money into Europe, and that they want more say in how the IMF is run.
There was some clear relief in the air after the IMF and Group of 20 major economies came out of their meetings Friday with commitments from the leading emerging economies Brazil, Russia, India and China to contribute to the fund\'s \"global firewall.\"
With worries now that Spain and Italy are on the verge of needing rescues, the funding boost is aimed at preventing new financial crises from ripping through global markets.
\"It is nice to have a big umbrella, or a big firewall... and that was really the achievement\" of the IMF-G20 meeting, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said.
The IMF had already cut its goal for the firewall funding from $500 billion to $400 billion, with its major shareholder the United States declining to contribute and the emerging giants, known as the BRICS, clearly nervous that their contributions might end up in a European black hole.
Early on eurozone countries ponied up $200 billion and Japan $60 billion. But it was only at the Friday financial summit that the IMF was able to pull in the balance.
Britain, South Korea and Saudi Arabia each pledged $15 billion; smaller amounts came from other European governments, and then, finally, the BRICS and three Southeast Asian countries promised a collective $68 billion, though no specific amounts were given.
The amount doubled the IMF\'s resources for intervening in crises, and together with the eurozone\'s own recently assembled $1 trillion firewall, was close to what IMF analysts say is necessary to prevent financial contagion that spill from Europe.
\"Well this is it, and it\'s good. Because of the debate about the European firewall, IMF resources had been taking up a lot of time, and I think it was about time that that conclusion was taken here,\" said Danish Finance Minister Margrethe Vestager.
But the money came with warnings from IMF members not part of the US-Europe-Japan axis that dominates the Washington-based global lender.
