This paper presents a series of perspectives on the political economy of the FATF and IMF in Pakistan for the calendar year 2019 (Vol 2.). It raises concerns about the excess politicization of the financial task force and how this impedes the fairness and efficiency of the international financial supervisory system. This then draws attention to the endogenous limitations of developing countries in coping with exogenous impositions of a political-economic nature.

Keywords: regulation, oversight, frictions, inflation, economy, politics, IMF, FATF, Pakistan
