EXOGEN: U.S. officials hopeful on IMF governance reforms
Senior U.S. officials said on Thursday they hoped to see the U.S. Congress approve reforms to the International Monetary Fund which will give emerging markets a bigger say at the global lender.
Reforms agreed in 2010 would put Brazil, China, India and Russia among the fund’s top 10 shareholders but have been held up in Congress, which must back them.
A source familiar with IMF discussions said there appeared to be a chance of a deal to pass the reforms before Group of 20 leaders meet in Turkey on November 15-16.
U.S. Treasury Under Secretary for International Affairs Nathan Sheets said the Obama administration was focused on getting the deal done, although he did not specify a timeframe.
“The case has been effectively made on the Hill. Senior legislators from both parties recognize the importance and I remain hopeful that we will see it,” he said at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
White House G20 adviser Caroline Atkinson said the IMF reform was very important and she continued to press for it.
The Senate appropriations committee has approved a funding bill that would also implement the IMF reforms, although the House version of the bill excludes them.
News agency Bloomberg reported on Thursday that Republican lawmaker Kay Granger, who is responsible for shepherding the House bill, said she was optimistic the two chambers could work out a compromise.

Pole R Bear: From Kim Clement:
With all that is taking place in the world, isn’t it great to know that God’s word is ALIVE and continuing to work throughout the earth?! While Kim is resting and recovering, God has been giving our team clear direction on reminding His people of the powerful promises He has given in recent weeks so we can be encouraged, strengthened, and know how to pray!
Although there is much unrest and turmoil in the Middle East right now, God has heard the prayers of the Christians that are praying there, and said that something has opened up over that region, and there will be “provision for the world because of what’s opened up over the Middle East.” He specifically said there will be a “break in the financial system in the Middle East” and to watch the Dinar!
We will also remind you of God’s plan for this nation as we have just come out of a seven year period of judgment and depression as a nation, but that God is going to release resources that will free us to be able to stretch out our hands to the lonely, the hungry, the poor, and to be able to feed and clothe them.
These are exciting times we are living in and we are going to shout, rejoice, proclaim, and prophesy the word of the Lord tomorrow at the Den! DON’T MISS IT!
On Codebreakers and throughout the broadcast, you will hear prophetic secrets revealed by Kim in advance about your future.
