The Per Jacobsson Foundation was established in 1964 to commemorate the work of Per Jacobsson (1894—1963) as a statesman in international monetary affairs. Per Jacobsson was the third Managing Director of the IMF (1956—63) and had earlier served as the Economic Adviser of the BIS (1931—56). Per Jacobsson Foundation lectures and contributions to symposia are expressions of personal views and intended to be substantial contributions to the field in which Per Jacobsson worked. They are distributed free of charge by the Foundation. Further information about the Foundation may be obtained from the Secretary of the Foundation or may be found on the Foundation’s website (www.perjacobsson.org).
