from Steve Keen
I was invited to give a speech on that topic to the Second Meeting of Ministers of Finance of the CELAC in Quito, Ecuador today (November 29 2013). In it I outlined Keynes’s Bancor proposal from Bretton Woods, explained why White’s plan was adopted instead, supported the proposal by Zhou Xiaochuan, the Governor of the Central Bank of China, to institute Keynes’s scheme, and proposed that Latin America could try a regional version of the same via the Bank of the South.
