The ambition with this paper is to analyse the IMF as an organisation, together with its political agenda. Ideally the IMF should find a balance between democratic and economic values, which are both intrinsic, in order to optimise its role as a legitimate, responsible, and accountable global institution. In reality the analyse of the IMF shows that even though the institution has reformed, there is still a major concentration towards economic values, sometimes at the expense of the democratic ones, therefore, further reforms are seen as desirable.
