Bretton Woods hotel

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Bretton Woods IV web site, which introduces The Bretton Woods Institute and Festival. 

The vision of the former, “The Bretton Woods Institute,” is summed up in the foregoing words of Henry Morgenthau. A vision it is, one that invites our efforts toward its realization?

The vision of the latter, “The Bretton Woods Festival,” is summed up in the following words by, we suggest, America's"reigning" Poet Laureate, Walt Whitman. The words are, we suggest, well worth a moment of reflection.

"As I write, I see in an article on Wordsworth, in one of the current English magazines, the lines, 'A few weeks ago an eminent French critic said that, owing to the special tendency to science and to its all devouring force, poetry would cease to be read in fifty years.' 

But I anticipate the very contrary. Only a firmer, vastly broader, new area begins to exist - nay, is already form'd - to which the poetic genius must emigrate. 

Whatever may have been the case in years gone by, the true use for the imaginative faculty of modern times is to give ultimate vivification to facts, to science, and to common lives, endowing them with those glows and glories and final illustriousness which belong to every real thing, and to real things only. Without that ultimate vivification -- which the poet or artist alone can give -- reality would seem incomplete, and science, democracy, and life itself, finally in vain."

On this web site you will discover the following glimpses that, we believe, distinguish it:

1) Solutions to our global monetary misfortunes.

2) A concise and engaging history of Bretton Woods.

3) An overview and in-depths examination of our monetary misfortunes.

4) A new economic paradigm and practice.

5) The indispensable framework for monetary reform.

6) Year 1 Keystone Project: Toward Getting Our Global House in Order.

May the Bretton Woods Monetary Institute and Festival inspire us to work together to fashion a future worth envisioning for our children, grandchildren, and for the generations to come: All Our Relations.
