Growth Is Better than Austerity: The Origins of Bretton Woods
Room 028, Silsby Hall
3:00 PM
Eric Rauchway
Professor of History, University of California-Davis
Why does the United States pick the head of the World Bank instead of the International Monetary Fund? Does a high ranking US Treasury official who was feeding information to the Soviet Union have something to do with it? Professor Rauchway will discuss his forthcoming book on the origins of the Bretton Woods system, the framework governing the world economy from the late 1940s untill the early 1970s, which was negotiated at the New Hampshire resort in 1944.
