Please join the GeoEconomics Center to launch new research as part of the inaugural Bretton Woods 2.0 Fellowship. This Fellowship aims to cultivate a new generation of economists to help reimagine the shape of the international financial system. The goal of the project is to deliver a blueprint for reforms in four key areas: governance and parallel institutions; macro-critical global trends; future of money and fintech; and non-state and quasi-state actors.
On January 16th, our inaugural cohort of fellowship and our staff published four papers which examine the challenges facing the Bretton Woods Institutions and leverage data to propose new solutions for the future of the IMF, World Bank, and World Trade Organization. The papers focus on governance reform at the IMF and World Bank, subsidy reform at the WTO, developing an agenda for the governance of central bank digital currencies, and navigating climate action in an era of geoeconomic fragmentation.
