Ed Conway – The Summit

The Interview ·
Featuring Ed Conway

Published on: June 21st, 2014 • Duration: 16 minutes

An interview with broadcaster and author Ed Conway about the summit at Bretton Woods in 1944. It was the only time countries from around the world have agreed to overhaul the structure of the international monetary system. It was the closest to perfection the world's economy has ever been, and arguably the demise of the Bretton Woods system is behind our present woes.

    Thank you for bringing this video forward again. Was quite good to hear these facts again especially considering the state of the financial system currently.

    About V1s: Off topic but I was born in Barnet in June 1944 at the same time as a V1 flew over the hospital. PS. The Buzz bomb engine did not cut off as it approached the hospital !

    Yup, I'd better have a look at your book Sir. The back story should be quite interesting indeed.

    I down-voted. Not because I didn't like it, but for this audience, we need it to be longer and provide more background. Only the last few minutes got into any real details.

    Very thought provoking - Do we really need a war to get sufficient focus on a broken system? Can we have more videos re possible fixes

    Excellent historical perspective! Unfortunately, the politicians will continue to make expedient decisions.
