Conversations in the Library - The International Monetary System

Free admission

Getting to know its origin, development and operating rules is intertwined with the history of currencies and some precious metals over the past 200 years

Underlying the concept of an International Monetary System is the notion of balance and a reserve currency. Getting to know its origin, development and operating rules is intertwined with the history of currencies and some precious metals over the past 200 years. From the gold standard to the euro area, via Bretton Woods, currencies have been instruments of exchange, stores of value and means of payment, as well as national symbols and an element of international hegemony.  Sterling and ‘its Queen’, the Franc of liberty, equality and fraternity, the Dollar that is ‘as good as gold’ and the Euro ‘uniting Europe’ are some examples of how man has used currencies to take advantage of international economic relations.
