The present paper focuses firstly, a brief critical appraisal of ‘Rich Countries Club’ characterization of World Bank and IMF, particularly; their philosophy, doctrines, personification and governing structure. Secondly, the past accomplishment and criticisms of World Bank and IMF recorded towards developing countries and success of these institutions as international institutions issues thoroughly examined.
