Delve: Constructing Narratives and the International Monetary Fund with Lindsay Holmgren


Published: 11Mar2022

Narrative theory is about looking at worlds, from their construction and governance to the real people living within them. This perspective is useful for understanding the complexities of not only literature, but the mechanisms of medicine, law, management, and economics. In the process, questions arise around established paradigms—the answers have the potential to bring about concrete disciplinary, practical, and policy-oriented outcomes.

On the latest Delve podcast, Desautels Faculty of Management Professor Lindsay Holmgren discusses her research on narrative theory and the International Monetary Fund, illustrating the IMF’s role in establishing and covertly disseminating the ideological foundations of a finance-centric, global economic paradigm.
