Bretton Woods system — The Bretton Woods system was the first example of a fully negotiated monetary order intended to govern monetary relations among independent nation-states. Also, there was a need to address the lack of cooperation among other countries, the delegates deliberated during 1—22 July , and signed the Bretton Woods agreement on its final day.
The United States, which controlled two thirds of the gold, insisted that the Bretton Woods system rest on both gold and the US dollar. Soviet representatives attended the conference but later declined to ratify the final agreements and these organizations became operational in after a sufficient number of countries had ratified the agreement. On 15 August , the United States unilaterally terminated convertibility of the US dollar to gold, effectively bringing the Bretton Woods system to an end and rendering the dollar a fiat currency.
This action, referred to as the Nixon shock, created the situation in which the US dollar became a currency used by many states. At the same time, many fixed currencies also became free-floating, there was a high level of agreement among the powerful nations that failure to coordinate exchange rates during the interwar period had exacerbated political tensions.
This facilitated the decisions reached by the Bretton Woods Conference, furthermore, all the participating governments at Bretton Woods agreed that the monetary chaos of the interwar period had yielded several valuable lessons. The solution at Versailles for the French, British, and Americans seemed to be make Germany pay for it all, if the demands on Germany were unrealistic, then it was unrealistic for France to pay back Britain, and for Britain to pay back the US.
Thus, many assets on bank balance sheets internationally were actually unrecoverable loans, in the s, international flows of speculative financial capital increased, leading to extremes in balance of payments situations in various European countries and the US.
In the s, world markets never broke through the barriers and restrictions on trade and investment volume — barriers haphazardly constructed. The lesson was that simply having responsible, hard-working central bankers was not enough, Britain in the s had an exclusionary trading bloc with nations of the British Empire known as the Sterling Area.
If Britain imported more than it exported to, say, South Africa and this meant that though Britain was running a trade deficit, it had a financial account surplus, and payments balanced. Increasingly, Britains positive balance of payments required keeping the wealth of Empire nations in British banks, one incentive for, say, South African holders of rand to park their wealth in London and to keep the money in Sterling, was a strongly valued pound sterling.
Unfortunately, as Britain deindustrialized in the s, the way out of the deficit was to devalue the currency. But Britain couldnt devalue, or the Empire surplus would leave its banking system, nazi Germany also worked with a bloc of controlled nations by Germany forced trading partners with a surplus to spend that surplus importing products from Germany, thus, Britain survived by keeping Sterling nation surpluses in its banking system, and Germany survived by forcing trading partners to purchase its own products.
Since , the IFC has focused on a set of development goals that its projects are expected to target, the IFC is owned and governed by its member countries, but has its own executive leadership and staff that conduct its normal business operations. It is a corporation whose shareholders are member governments that provide paid-in capital and it offers an array of debt and equity financing services and helps companies face their risk exposures, while refraining from participating in a management capacity.

Capital control — These measures may be economy-wide, sector-specific, or industry specific. They may apply to all flows, or may differentiate by type or duration of the flow, there have been several shifts of opinion on whether capital controls are beneficial and in what circumstances they should be used.
This period was the first time capital controls had been endorsed by mainstream economics, in the s free market economists became increasingly successful in persuading their colleagues that capital controls were in the main harmful. The US, other governments, and the big multilateral financial institutions A fixed exchange rate, 2 an independent monetary policy.
In the first age of globalization, governments largely chose to pursue a stable exchange rate while allowing freedom of movement for capital, the sacrifice was that their monetary policy was largely dictated by international conditions, not by the needs of the domestic economy.
In the Bretton woods period, governments were free to have both generally stable exchange rates and independent monetary policies at the price of capital controls, the impossible trinity concept was especially influential during this era as a justification for capital controls.
There have been three instances of capital controls in the EU and EFTA since — all of them triggered by banking crises, in its financial crisis, Iceland imposed capital controls due to the collapse of its banking system. As of , Icelands capital controls have not been lifted — although Icelands government said in June that it planned to lift them. However, since the plans include a tax on taking capital out of the country. These capital controls were lifted in , with the last controls being removed in April and it generally regulates inflows only and take ex-ante policy interventions.
Or the complete freedom within regions such as the European Union, with its Four Freedoms, pro free market economists claim the following advantages for free movement of capital, It enhances overall economic growth by allowing savings to be channelled to their most productive use. By encouraging foreign direct investment it helps developing economies to benefit from foreign expertise, allows states to raise funds from external markets to help them mitigate a temporary recession.
Enables both savers and borrowers to secure the best available market rate, when controls include taxes, funds raised are sometimes siphoned off by corrupt government officials for their personal use. Pro capital control economists have made the following points, Capital controls may represent an optimal macroprudential policy that reduces the risk of financial crises and prevents the associated externalities.
Global economic growth was on average considerably higher in the Bretton Woods periods where capital controls were widely in use, using regression analysis, economists such as Dani Rodrik have found no positive correlation between growth and free capital movement.
Capital controls limiting a nations residents from owning foreign assets can ensure that domestic credit is available more cheaply than would otherwise be the case and this sort of capital control is still in effect in both India and China.
In India the controls encourage residents to provide cheap funds directly to the government, economic crises have been considerably more frequent since the Bretton Woods capital controls were relaxed.

Money laundering is the act of concealing the transformation of profits from illegal activities and corruption into ostensibly "legitimate" assets.
Considerable time and effort may be put into strategies which enable the safe use of those proceeds without raising unwanted suspicion. Implementing such strategies is generally called money laundering.
After money has been suitably laundered or "cleaned", it can be used in the mainstream economy for accumulation of wealth, such as by acquisitions of properties or legitimate businesses, or simply spent. Law enforcement agencies of many jurisdictions have set up sophisticated systems in an effort to detect suspicious transactions or activities, and many have set up international cooperative arrangements to assist each other in these endeavors.
