The Bretton Woods Project at the CFS offers a platform for study and exploration of the agreement that shaped the international monetary system over the last nearly 70 years. The Bretton Woods transcripts discovered by CFS Senior Fellow Kurt Schuler serve as the cornerstone of the project with historic documents, photographs, memorabilia and recollections creating a resource for historians, finance professional, public officials, the media, students, and other interested observers.

The hotel will be exclusively available for the conference, just as it was in 1944. The event will gather prominent leaders from government, business, and academia in a working-group environment to focus on the FUTURE of finance and the international monetary system.
