Bretton Woods Conference transcripts now available

The transcripts of 1944 Bretton Woods Conference were recently found at the Treasury, and have been published (a sample is available here). More info here. As noted by the NYTimes do NOT expect any major surprises though.


  1. Bretton Woods was the most important monetary and trade agreement in history. It's somewhat hard to believe that the transcripts were lost to history by everyone and only now has fortune brought them back. Thank goodness for this happy event.
