Example text

Although "form follows function" (a phrase mistakenly attributed to Mitrany) now proves palpably apt as forecast, the growth and proliferation of organized multilateral units does not assure their effectiveness. Nor does it render their accountability. Functionalism may form, but it does not re-form.

A great number of new financial instruments have been developed, increasing the flexibility of the system. The changes permitted governments and companies to search for the cheapest source of finance as well as the international diversification of investors' portfolios. The International Monetary Fund and World Bank have not only weathered these transformations but have adapted to the needs of a changing world.

There are several explanations for the collapse of the system and also for the immediate and long term consequences. Some of these emphasize the do~ mestic and international problems of the United States insofar as America was unable to meet its obligations. Others give greater weight to the new needs of governments in satisfying their demand for borrowing more effi~ cientiy. There is also an explanation based on the interests and goals of the evolving new economic power centres and competitors of the US (Western Europe and Japan) which have rendered the post-Second World War arrangements obsolete.
