About This Event
With today’s global interconnectedness, geopolitical competition, and unprecedented government spending and money-printing to spur economic recovery, the US dollar is facing an uncertain future. Today’s reality calls back to a secret meeting held 50 years ago in Camp David in August of 1971 when President Richard Nixon broke the link between the dollar and gold. This signaled that the Bretton Woods era of international economy was over, shining light on the early roots of American retrenchment in world affairs. Fifty-years after Nixon’s meeting at Camp David, Council President’s Club and leadership members are invited to engage with Jeffrey Garten, former undersecretary of commerce in the Clinton administration, to discuss the “Nixon Shock”, the impact it carries on today’s dollar, and the Biden administration’s future engagement with the world.
Copies of Jeffrey Garten’s new book, Three Days at Camp David: How a Secret Meeting in 1971 Transformed the Global Economy, are available to purchase through our local book partner, The Book Cellar.
