              Lewis Mudge talks about the current global economic downturn and whether the nations of the world could work together for what might be called Bretton Woods II to reconstruct the global economy in more just ways that parallel some of the reforms following the original Bretton Woods conference in 1944. He believes that this new effort should also benefit the roughly four billion people who live largely outside the realm of global economic affairs today. He discusses both the Davos Global Economic Forum and the opposing World Social Forum in Belém, Brazil in early 2009. Mudge was doing this research on behalf of the General Assembly Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy (ACSWP) of the Presbyterian Church (USA). ACSWP expected to produce a document for the 2010 assembly of the denomination. Lewis Mudge was the Robert Leighton Stuart Professor of Theology, Emeritus at the Graduate Theological Union at the University of California. He died on September 11, 2009 at his home in Berkeley. At the time he had written the first seventy pages of a book on the subject which is forthcoming in early 2014 with the collaboration of others.
