Special issue: "50 years after the collapse of the Bretton Woods international financial monetary system"

Guest editors
Laura Vidal Correa y Wesley C. Marshall

Just over 50 years ago, on August 15, 1971, U.S. President Richard Nixon announced the suspension of the convertibility of the dollar for gold; a measure that was announced as temporary, but that would become permanent. From that decision to the present, the historical fact continues to be immersed in mystery and debate. Over the next half-century, some of the secrets behind Nixon's decision have been clarified, but the debate remains far from resolved.
