Just Before Bretton Woods: The Atlantic City Conference, June 1944

Edited by by Kurt Schuler and Gabrielle Canning

The Bretton Woods, New Hampshire conference that established the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in 1944 was highly publicized then and remains well known today. The Atlantic City, New Jersey conference that occurred immediately before Bretton Woods has never received much attention, until now.

Atlantic City set the stage for Bretton Woods. In particular, it developed an internationally approved draft agreement for the World Bank, without which the organization might never have been established.
