22 U.S. Code § 286oo - Principles for International Monetary Fund lending
Lending from the general resources of the Fund should concentrate chiefly on short-term balance of payments financing.
Premium pricing should be introduced for lending from the general resources of the Fund, for greater than 200 percent of a member’s quota in the Fund, to discourage excessive use of Fund lending and to encourage members to rely on private financing to the maximum extent possible.
