Modernizing the Bretton Woods Institutions for the Twenty-First Century


This paper is one of four publications launched as part of the Bretton Woods 2.0 Project on October 17, 2022. Launched right after the 2022 IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings, the Bretton Woods 2.0 Project examines the deep challenges facing the Bretton Woods Institutions and leverages interactive data visualizations to reimagine the governance of international finance for the modern global economy. The goal of the Project is to deliver a blueprint for reforms in four key areas: governance and parallel institutions, macro-critical global trends, future of money, and fintech, and non-state and quasi-state actors.
