In this Article, Professor Edwards considers possible developments in international monetary law over the next twenty-five years. The author begins by discussing some formative events for international monetary law throughout the last twenty-five years, and he notes that unforeseen political developments can have a dramatic effect on monetary policy, and, therefore; make predicting future policy risky. The author does suggest, however, some policy changes that respond to current issues such as the trend toward currency consolidation, the need to improve public confidence in monetary processes, the need to stabilize the currencies of the states of the former Soviet Union, and the strengthening of international monetary institutions.
