Summary This book reflects the continuing and increasing interest of the IMF in payment system issues, from a public policy perspective. The book originated in a set of papers prepared for the information of the IMF Executive Board and staff. It provides a broad overview of the main policy and strategic issues in payment system reform being addressed by countries around the world. It also describes the structure of various payment systems, particularly those that handle large-value and time critical payments. The book highlights that in payment system policy there are areas in which a general consensus has emerged, but also aspects for which countries have different practices. It then indicates the direction for future payment system policy analysis and research
