The Tuesday Podcast: Do We Need The IMF?

On today's Planet Money, we ask: What does the International Monetary Fund actually do? Does the world still need the IMF? And what do the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn mean for its future?

We talk to Simon Johnson, who was the IMF's chief economist in 2007 and 2008.

For more, see our post, "What Is The IMF, Anyway?"
