In this lecture, given at Bruegel‘s Annual Meeting in June, 2006, Jeffry Frieden focuses on why the first era of globalisation could not be restored, and why it was ultimately replaced by a system based on the rules of Bretton Woods.

The world deserves a more effective G20

As the presidency shifts from Argentina to Japan at Buenos Aires (and then to Saudi Arabia) it is worth asking why the G20 has endured this long and what it needs to remain relevant in a dramatically changed world.
