Historians discussed two wartime efforts to plan for the post-World War II economy: the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference and the 1945 proposal put forth by U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Morganthau Jr. While the Bretton Woods Conference aimed to build a strong global economy to stave off fascism like that which had engulfed Germany and Italy, the Morganthau plan focused more on punitive measures toward Germany as punishment for Nazism and its aggression in Europe. This event was part of the National World War II Museum’s annual conference. close
