Bretton Woods summit on Dutch coast

12 December 2000

Many people have discussed at different times the idea of organizing a new, alternative Bretton Woods summit to update the one of 1944 which gave rise to the World Bank and IMF. On 1 and 2 December Dutch alternative magazine Ode organized just such a conference in The Netherlands, with alternative thinkers aiming to formulate the principles of a new economic order. The Treaty produced at the meeting covers many issues including: new indicators of national income, sustainable currencies, Tobin Tax, debt cancellation, trade, green energy and spiritual growth.
