The United States and the London Economic Conference of 1933
MetadataShow full item record
During the summer of 1933 representatives of sixty-six nations assembled in London for the largest international conference that had ever been held. The delegates to that conference -- The London Economic Conference -- were charged with isolating and solving a number of international monetary and economic problems, and thus, through international means, arresting the malignant growth of the world depression. The Conference failed for reasons that have been variously stated and interpreted. This study outlines the work of the Conference and discusses its accomplishments and its failures. Further, this study attempts to determine the relationship of the United States and of President Franklin D. Roosevelt to the successes and failures of the Conference.
