Rethinking Bretton Woods | Thu, Apr 28, 2011
On April 17, 2011, Club de Madrid, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation-NY and the Center of Concern held a seminar “Democratic Reform of the International Financial and Monetary System: The objective of equitable development and shared societies.”
This day-long event, held at the International Monetary Fund, featured policy-makers, representatives from the Executive Directors' offices of the IMF and experts from developed and developing countries. Its goal was to promote discussion about whether, in the current debate about the need for a new paradigm for the global economy, a shared societies perspective could make an important contribution and if so how.
Panels addressed the need to reform the international monetary system, proposals for such reforms, and policies to create a shared and more equitable world at the national and global levels.
