Sony Kapoor examines how using IMF gold sales to fund multilateral debt cancellation could release much needed resources for meeting the millennium development goals (MDGs).

He addresses the concerns of the gold-producing poor countries by highlighting two distinct mechanisms by which the gold could be sold while eliminating or at least minimizing price impact. Finally, he underlines the fact that selling this gold and using its proceeds for debt cancellation would not in any way jeopardize the operations of the IMF.Development (2005) 48, 92–100. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100122
