Der Warte sind genug gewechselt. lasst mich auch endllch Taten sehn. l.W. GOETHE Since the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Recon struction and Development, which are analysed in Part I, are specialized agencies linked by special agreements with the United Nations, a few words about the UN and two of the other specialized agencies, the Food and Agricul ture Organization and the International Labour Organization, are called for. This is followed by a short account of the Bank for International Settlements, which is also referred to in connection with the IMF and the IBRD. The rest of this introduction is devoted to some non-European attempts at economic integration (which have not yet been very successful) and to the regional development banks. 1. The United Nations (UN) The United Nations comprises 158 countries (September 1983) which have accepted the Charter of the United Nations, which was signed at San Francisco on 26 June 1945 and came into force on 24 October 1945.
