Some of these economic programs include the establishment of new international monetary system developments, the creation of the World Bank and the international monetary fund, the expansion of free market economy and the impact of new technologies on money around the ...view middle of the document...

The World Bank consist of 184 member countries that are represented by a board of just 24 people, this organization an independent functioning division of United Nations. This economic institution aims to be a loan-providing agency for countries facing financial difficulty. However, for a country to receive a loan from the
World Bank, they must subdue to certain conditions, a practice that many criticize.
The World Bank and the international monetary fund were created to work together to encourage and stabilize economic activity. The international monetary fund’s role in this partnership was to monitor exchange rates and provide short-term assistance, while the World Bank was in charge of long-term assistance. Quotas, which are determined by their economy size, are paid by its member countries to fund the IMF. The United States pays the largest quota, followed by Japan and Germany, however their payments are significantly lower. The international monetary fund, which is also criticized by many, is a division of United Nations as the World Bank is.

Everyday, millions of people are exposed to commercials and ads to encourage economic activity, which many do right in their own homes by investing in companies all over the world. With this ability, a pattern can be seen regarding ones investments in certain companies, for example, if an investor pulls out of a company, it leaves the other investors wondering if they too should in fact, pull out of the company. An effect such as this is known as the electronic herd effect because of the movement of investors like a herd of cattle.
