Roundtable of the Euro50 Group and RBWC on the Eurozone Crisis and the International Monetary System

Paris, France

December 9, 2011



This Paris conference was designed as a continuation of reflections we had started in that same city a year earlier during a conference titled “The International Monetary System: Old and New Debates”, which was also the first event organized by RBWC under the G20 French Presidency. On this occasion we not only recapitulated the activities of The Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee under G20 France and pondered what we had learned from one year of discussions but in order to broaden our perspective further we also looked at a report entitled “Before it is too late – Thoughts on the International Monetary System” that Jean Guyot, late French economist, banker and humanitarian, (Founder and President of Hippocrene Foundation) assisted by Marc Uzan, then a graduate at the University of California, Berkley, had written 20 years earlier.
