In cheerleading President Biden’s massive budget stimulus proposal , the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is doing a disservice not only to the United States but also to the rest of its 190 member countries. That’s because the Biden stimulus is likely to result in a disruptive emerging market capital flow reversal and a considerable worsening in international payment imbalances.
