It came as no surprise to some that, given concerns about debt sustainability, the first eurozone programme agreed under the new director — for Cyprus — provided less aid and forced losses on large bank depositors. The Cypriot case sent a message: the IMF negotiators were the toughest in the room. Cyprus received IMF aid worth just six times its fund quota Greece received 22 times its quota, and Ireland Support for debt forgiveness by private creditors was one thing. But it was quite another when, this time last year, the IMF reportedly threatened to stop funding the Greek programme without an assurance that eurozone governments would consider a debt write-off.

The Review of Financial Studies 33, N o. Editor's C hoice. Abstract: Geophysicists examine and document the repercussions for the earth's climate induced by alternative emission scenarios and model specifications. Using simplified approximations, they produce tractable characterizations of the associated uncertainty. Meanwhile, economists write highly stylized damage functions to speculate about how climate change alters macroeconomic and growth opportunities. How can we assess both climate and emissions impacts, as well as uncertainty in the broadest sense, in social decision-making? We provide a framework for answering this question by embracing recent decision theory and tools from asset pricing, and we apply this structure with its interacting components to a revealing quantitative illustration.
I am committed to supporting the G20 in making a real contribution to achieving gender inclusive economic growth through the economic empowerment of women. That economic empowerment also includes attention to the many issues that make it difficult for women to make that contribution, including attention to the provision of public services and issues related to unpaid care. I also have specific expertise in a number of themes related to the upcoming conference.
