The Dollar, The Euro, and the International Monetary Order: What is the U.S. to Do?

Join us as our distinguished guests examine the many threats to the dollar and its long-standing international role in the global economy. Nobel Prize winner Robert Mundell has been called the “Father of the Euro” for his advocacy of a common European currency; he is also well-known as the academic founder of supply side economics. Steve Hanke has played an important role in establishing new currency regimes in Argentina, Estonia, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ecuador, Lithuania and Montenegro; his most recent book is Zimbabwe: Hyperinflation to Growth. Judy Shelton, a critic of the Federal Reserve System, has written frequent opinion pieces for the Wall Street Journal, and testified before Congress on numerous occasions regarding global finance and monetary developments. It promises to be a lively and provocative look at the world’s financial system.
