Interview with Alexandre Lamfalussy: the BIS and the Jamaica Accords (Brussels, 18 March 2010)

In this interview, Alexandre Lamfalussy, Economic Adviser and Head of the Monetary and Economic Department of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) from 1976 to 1985, discusses the consequences on the scope of action of the BIS brought about by the Jamaica Accords. These agreements, signed on 8 January 1976, marked a break with the Bretton Woods system by providing a legal basis for the system of floating exchange rates practised since 1973, formalising the demonetisation of gold and enshrining Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) as an international reserve asset.
