The IMF Starts Blogging

The International Monetary Fund launched its very first blog yesterday;  the Public Financial Management blog. Some blurbage on this new blog:

The PFM blog aims at sharing the IMF staff’s vast experience with PFM practitioners in Ministries of Finance and other fiscal agencies, academia, students, non-governmental organizations, as well as with the general public. It will also feature current news, resources and ideas about public financial management systems, their operation and improvement, and their contribution to economic growth and achieving national objectives, including economic and financial stability.

There will probably be more to come.  The new managing director of the IMF (Dominique Strauss-Kahn)  has been blogging since last year.  He even set up a blog for his campaign to become MD.
