The similarities between our modern "Special Drawing Rights" (SDR) and the bancor are striking.
For Salais, the failure to introduce a Eurocor on the model of Keynes's proposed bancor was an early instance of a long sequence of opportunities foregone in succeeding decades.
Keynes propuso la creacion de una unidad comun de divisa global llamada Bancor, argumentando que era necesaria como un vehiculo aceptado globalmente para la inversion, el comercio y los pagos en el previsto sistema economico mundial, junto con dos nuevas instituciones globales--un Banco Central Mundial y la Union de Compensacion Internacional, las cuales estarian a cargo de la regulacion del comercio internacional con fuertes incentivos para todos los paises con el fin de evitar los probables deficits o superavits importantes.
But what gets lost in Steil's revisionist retelling is the other great contribution of Bretton Woods--a system that constrained speculative capital and created a bias in favor of economic expansion, quite apart from whether the anchor currency was the dollar or Keynes's proposed bancor.
The most innovative points of this plan are as follows: the bancor would occupy a position as international currency, while gold would lose its position as international currency and all the existing currencies such as the dollar and pound sterling would remain as local currencies; the foreign exchange markets would disappear and credit be created in accordance with the economic growth of the world economy.
He favours Keynes's policy prescription in the 1940s of an International Clearing House with its own currency, the Bancor.
In a nod to the economist John Maynard Keynes, it says: "Called, for example, bancor in honour of Keynes, such a currency could be used as a medium of exchange - an Outside money' in contrast to the SDR which remains an 'inside money'.
A somewhat less ambitious option would be for Bancor to circulate along side national currencies, though it would need to be adopted by fiat in at least some countries in order for an exchange market to develop.
El proceso de clearing entre bancos centrales se llevaria a cabo a traves de cuentas que estos mantendrian en el ICU: en el lado de los activos del balance del ICU figurarian sus reservas y los prestamos otorgados a los bancos centrales de los paises miembros, mientras que en la columna de pasivos aparecerian los depositos realizados por los bancos centrales --nominados en Bancor, una moneda supranacional administrada por el leu que mantendria una paridad rija con el oro.
