City of London, Monetary & Economic Conference at the Guildhall
The London Economic Conference was a meeting of representatives of 66 nations from June 12 to July 27, 1933 largely at the Geological Museum. Its purpose was to win agreement on measures to fight the Great Depression, revive international trade, and stabilize currency exchange rates.
The Conference collapsed after it was "torpedoed" by US President Franklin Roosevelt in early July when he denounced currency stabilization.
