A new learning experience for both.

The Dollar in American Foreign Policy – Past, Present, and Future

Please join Kenneth Jacobs, Chairman and CEO of Lazard Freres, and Jeffrey Garten, Dean Emeritus of the Yale School of Management, for a virtual discussion of Garten’s new book, Three Days at Camp David: How a Secret Meeting in 1971 Transformed the Global Economy. They will discuss how and why the Nixon administration severed the link between the dollar and gold during the weekend of August 13-15, 1971—fifty years ago this summer—and the political and economic reverberations for international finance and trade to this day. They will also look ahead to the challenges the dollar may face in the coming years from China, from digital and cryptocurrencies, from major distortions in the global economy in the post-pandemic era, and from political dysfunction in Washington itself. This event is co-sponsored by the Yale Club of New York.
