Reply To: Bond vigilantees and political power


I’m writing a project on what the role of Bretton Woods was before and after its breakdown. I want to explain the centrality of monetary issues in international studies through the austrian perspective. So I want to know the effects of monetary systems on political and global issues.

Was the break down of Bretton Woods tied into the debt problems of developing countries in the late 70’s?

Are there any writings on the general effects of the break down of Bretton Woods?
