Example text

Granted, increased trade protectionism and competitive currency devaluations are ruled out. Domestic monetary policy may have to be calibrated in a manner which supports the fixed exchange rate; if monetary policy is too expansionist it could create pressure on international reserves which would rapidly diminish. The conduct of monetary policy is not spelt out in the BW Agreement. Yet monetary policy required careful design, given the spirit of the times in favour of active, discretionary monetary actions with a bias towards expansion and in particular towards accommodating fiscal policy.

In the first case a country with a deficit and exercising IMF The Bretton Woods financial order 29 drawing rights would responsibly implement macroeconomic stabilization policies designed to minimize the risk of exhausting IMF entitlements. In practice it is known in retrospect that certain types of policies using specific monetary policy instruments were favoured by the IMF in the period up to the 1970s (Spitzer 1969). Actual practice notwithstanding, the original BW architecture did not formally recommend rules for the operation of national monetary and fiscal policies in the face of balance of payments disturbances.

As Margaret De Vries (1969: 224), an official historian of the IMF, revealed: As the Fund’s . . Articles were drafted against the background of the disturbing capital movements that had taken place during the 1930s, there was an understandable desire to prevent movements of ‘hot’ money and to minimize the risk that inadequate foreign exchange reserves could be depleted by more or less panic-inspired capital transfers. That the BW capital controls were driven by a particular reading of the international financial upheavals in the 1930s is one thing; clear guidance proffered to BW member countries in respect of capital movements is not forthcoming.
