"I am very passionate with studies that open doors to possibilities, in this case to the possibility of creating new scholarships. Few scholarships have been created about the relations between the IMF and the Central European countries and South American countries. I challenge those who disagree that there are no relations or differences between these two regions and the IMF. My aim is to find the real meaning of IMF's help in each region, and to determined if the IMF is a trap in for those governments in both regions, and if there is any form of discrimination policy wise from the IMF in any of these regions."
