I guess I can't really imagine the IMF adopting a crowdsourced community-based model of a MOOC, but I am pleased to observed that their course will at least be open, so we will be able to see what advice they are offering world financial leaders. We read, "These are going to be uncompromising in their content - 'based on the latest collective wisdom on macro-economics' - but are designed to give the public an insight into the issues facing their governments' finance ministers." Which I guess is a start. The IMF will be partnering with edX for the venture.
