Rethinking Bretton Woods | Wed, Nov 27, 2013

This week a United Nations intergovernmental body mandated to craft proposals for what the new goals on Sustainable Development should look like, met to consider the macroeconomic and financial policy aspects of that agenda. Center of Concern’s team member Aldo Caliari provided key inputs for those deliberations, held at the UN Headquarters in New York. At a panel on November 26th, 2013 he delivered a statement on behalf of the civil society organizations’ Finance and Trade Issues cluster. At a side-event the day before, on food price volatility, he discussed the theme “Facing the financialization of food markets: why, where and how in the post-2015 development agenda.”
