The deflated dollar, the fixed franc, the mobile mark and a strong pound - the events of the past summer have turned the international monetary world upside down. In this topsy-turvy atmosphere the International Monetary Fund meets this week in Washington to try to bring some order to the world's exchange rate. Brian Widlake reports from Washington where he has been talking to Harold Lever, MP, Treasury Minister in the last Labour government, about the measures taken.
