Dr. Warren Coats alerted me by email that he will be participating in a forum held by the Jack Kemp Foundation in Wasington D.C. on April 20th. The forum is on Exchange Rates and the US Dollar. This should be a very interesting discussion with Dr. Coats presenting a paper on his ideas for a role for the SDR. Dr. Judy Shelton will also be featured at this event and she may talk some about a role for gold. I feel sure she will be in favor of a stable currency environment as is Dr. Coats.
Below is the text of the email from Dr. Coats about this event and a graphic providing more details on it that he included in the email. I'm looking forward to hearing more about this discussion by this distinguished panel. Hopefully, The Kemp Foundation will video the forum and provide a public link to it afterwards.
Update note 4-12-17 (afternoon): I have heard from Dr. Coats that he will provide a copy of the paper he will present at the forum so at the very least we will be able to feature that here even if no public video is available from the forum.
If you have time during the busy Spring Meetings at the IMF/WB, I hope you will join me at the National Press club for what I am sure will be an interesting series of discussions of the international monetary system, including my own discussion of the role of the SDR (see the link below). If you are interested, but unable to attend I would be happy to send you the paper I will present (once I have written it).
