WASHINGTON, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Jack Kemp Foundation's Project on Exchange Rates and the Dollar will host a forum on the international monetary order on April 20th at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, from 10:30 am to 4 pm, followed by a reception.
The event will examine Nobel Laureate Dr. Robert Mundell's suggestion that the world economy is weak and crisis-prone due to large exchange rate swings among the major currencies, especially the dollar-euro rate. Participants will discuss the prospects of more coordinated and stable exchange rates as the core of a new international monetary arrangement.
The conference will also feature video messages from former public officials including Paul Volcker and James Baker, Lewis Lehrman, and a letter from Dr. Mundell. Featured speakers include Dr. Judy Shelton, former IMF economist Dr. Warren Coats, Dr. Benn Steil, Dr. Brian Domitrovic, Mr. John Mueller, and Dr. Xiang Songzuo of China.
The event's co-chairmen are Mr. James Kemp of the Jack Kemp Foundation and Dr. Steve Hanke of Johns Hopkins University.
The event is inspired by a 1983 conference on exchange rates, hosted by Jack Kemp and Dr. Mundell, that helped lay the groundwork for the Plaza Accord of 1985.
