International Equilibrium and Bretton Woods (Kalecki vs Keynes)

Dear Friends & Colleagues:

The Review of Keynesian Economics (ROKE) will be sponsoring a webinar presentation of the book International Equilibrium and Bretton Woods (Kalecki’s Alternative to Keynes’s and White and its Consequences) edited by Jerzy Osiatynski and Jan Toporowski. Speakers will include among others Peter Clarke (Cambridge University), Peter Kriesler (University of South Wales, Australia), Noemi Levy (UNAM), and Jan Toporowski (SOAS).

International Equilibrium and Bretton Woods brings together the papers presented at a special conference of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Bretton Woods Conference. The papers, from a number of distinguished speakers, assess the background and the results of the Bretton Woods agreements. The discussion is focused around the critical assessment of the Keynes and White Plans by Michal Kalecki, and the consequences of this for present-day international economics and international monetary and financial policy.

But this volume is unique in bringing together the critical assessments that were made at the time, by Kalecki, Fritz Schumacher, Thomas Balogh, and Raul Prebisch, that are virtually unknown today, together with critical assessments of the work of the Bretton Woods Institutions since that time.

You are invited to attend. The details are as follows:

Date, Time, and registration:
