This simple graphic, via the excellent Ada Swanson of the Washington Post, was created by Matt Mulholland to illustrate the fraction of IMF loans outstanding by member country. In summary, Greece accounts for about 60 percent of the IMF’s business ($27.26 billion), with Ukraine a distant second ($5.25 billion). By the way, this graphic begs an important question: Why did the IMF agree to place such a large bet on Greece in the first place?
