The Evolving Institutional Landscape

Part of the Global Forecast 2015

Seventy years ago, as World War II was nearing its end, 44 allied nations assembled at the Bretton Woods resort in New Hampshire to begin rebuilding a global economic order that had been reduced to rubble over the previous 30 years. The institutions spawned by that meeting, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, and eventually World Trade Organization (WTO), underpinned a rules-based economic order that produced seven decades of growing prosperity around the world.
