Beijing, China

November 19, 2012



This one-day conference was held at The International Trade and Cooperation Academy Forum, organized at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. The title we chose for this event, “The Segmentation Century: the End of the Bretton Woods Era? was meant to reflect that we were in the midst of an era marked by an uncertain outlook for the euro zone financial crisis and a waning multilateralism that was severely impacting the global economy. Nobel laureate and longtime participant in the work of RBWC, Robert Mundell, PBOC deputy governor Pan Gongsheng and other economists and market took part in discussions that covered among other topics reconfiguring the Eurozone moving forward, the threat of fiscal dominance, measures to curb the financial crisis, building a new international order, and the economic growth model of China.
