Conference paper


The subject matter of this conference is ambitious in the sense that it deals with the future of the international monetary system and its institutions. It would be almost equally ambitious if it dealt with its past, about which a great deal more is known than of its future. Yet it is from the past that we can draw lessons and learn about the future. History is condensed into hypotheses, theories and laws that provide us with a roadmap of the future.
