On the other hand, when Terry Paccoud spoke, his presentation regarding the social dimensions of structural adjustment and all the multileveled attempts at data gathering, seemed to be just what Peter Heller needed in terms of his input. I am happy to report that the World Bank will give the IMF the information, it seems, when it is completed.
