New nations appeared due to decolonization and influence of Cold War (capitalism vs  communism)   ○ New nations will either go with USA or USSR   ● Bretton Wood System:New Hampshire, late 1946­1947  ○ Meeting took place to chart new international economic relations   ○ Following Great Depression   ○ Open markets­ created World Bank and IMF   ○ World Bank: collect money from member and fund development  ○ IMF: International Monetary Fund, credit card of the world   ○ Gold Standard: USA and UK will be standard of world, May 1971­got stopped  because USA couldn’t afford buying gold and UK didn’t want to do it  ● Criticism:   ○ Conservative:   ■ Support socialism­ type of society NOT natural law of supply and demand   ■ Support social worker and birth control   ■ Lots of corruption in World Bank­ no taxes   ○ Liberal:   ■ Corruption, overspending   ■ Could have done better project with less money   ■ With IMF not good to cut subsidy   ● Sterling Zone, Franc Zone and Deutsche Mark:  ○ Asia and Africa had weak currency so could​urrency of other nations  ● Contribution of Economic Theory:   ○

Sterling Zone, Franc Zone and Deutsche Mar​oor countries using other country’s  currency because own too weak   ● Walt Rostow’s Stages of Economic Growthfocus on one thing you are good at and will  develop   ● Dependency school: North America developed while Latin America did not   ● 3rd world= not NATO or Soviet Union nation  ○ Lumb all other together­ still some “3rd world” are truly developed   ● 4th world: VERY POOR 3rd world   ● South­South Dialogue:3rd world helps 3rd world   ● Basic Need Approach: basic needs are too expensive   ○ You lower money of basic needs so you can develop better   ○ Seen in U.N. report by Willy Brandt on why nations are poor   ● Contribution by private seclots of money to fight HIV  ○ Examples are Bill Gates Foundation and Ford Foundation   ○ Smaller non­profit groups helped with development   ● Example of private sector helping nat​tory of the Filipino Home Workers­ lots of  Filipino women get trained to work in household   ○ Also nurses   ● International development is tool of foreign policy  ○ Wealthy nations will help poor nations but only when they get something back  that will help them   ●

around few simple products befhis has​hanged­​FEW LUXURIES   ○ These tools helped with country’s development   ● American way of foreign a​SA doesn’t give money to country insocus on  infrastructure because goes with investment mentality   ○ Does give military money aid but prefers infrastructure   ● Tailored aithere are nations that are not super wealthy but want to help others   ○ Very controlled and tailored­FOCUSED AND LIMITED   ○ Most successful   ○ Example is Israel helping in Africa, Taiwan helping as well   ● Oil Arab Countries’ Experiewanted to help nations with large muslim population and  help Islamic community abroad   ○ BCCI started from India study in British or Canadian schools or giving experts to  help build things   ○ Germany brought workers and gave money to schools­ after they could liberated  they begun to give aid to Nazi victims   ○

Why didn’t it worNational Security > development so money given used to keep  nation safe instead of developnvest in war not development  ● When country develop will it continue to be opp​ome people think that even if  not democratic countries can have room for civil society on other activities that aren’t  democratic   ● What is the future of international development? L ​ess money going into HIV because  seen as less fatal so focus on other things like malnutrition, regionalism­ neighbors  helping neighbors and working together in certain projects, foreign aid privatization   ○ Aid was given for very basic efforts like building toilets   ● Environment is a new topic in IR   ○ Shows impact of ideology (beliefs and activism) in IR­ care and act   ● Do states respond to warnings? ​ Environment has become a source of conflict   ○ Poor nations blame wealthy nations for dumping nuclear waste in their land
