My 3-part series on Illicit Financial Flows is now complete. Hopefully it adds to the prospects of making real progress towards curbing illicit financial flows. Part III runs through the ways existing economic policies tend to increase – rather than reduce – illicit financial flows and suggests several ways policies could be made more coherent, so that countries can achieve development and still curb illicit financial flows. It also advocates that the IMF should step up to a leadership role in this search for coherence.
