On the eve of the IMF/World Bank Spring Meetings during their 80th anniversary, it is the perfect time to examine the origins of the Bretton Woods and various other institutions that make up the international financial architecture.

Brettonomics with Nancy Jacklin features interviews with current and former international finance policy officials to discuss why these institutions are needed, how they operate, and how they have evolved to address modern global challenges.

Season 2 of the podcast focuses on how the World Bank, and the entire multilateral development bank framework, work to fulfill the World Bank’s new mission statement: to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity on a livable planet.
