Kurt Schuler: "The transcripts of the Bretton Woods conference were never meant to be published, but we have them. Today the CFS releases The Bretton Woods Transcripts, an e-book edited by me and Andrew Rosenberg. It contains verbatim proceedings of many meetings from the 1944 Bretton Woods conference, which established the IMF and World Bank and began an era of international economic cooperation that endures today. The Web page for the book contains much more information about it, plus extensive background material that is being made readily available for the first time. Over the next few weeks I will comment here on elements of the book, and offer some details about the conference and its participants that are not in the book."
