The latest brief from the Bretton Woods Committee highlights the potential blockchain technologies have in boosting privacy, lowering costs associated with international payments and remittances and advancing financial inclusion.

The hosts are joined by one of the brief’s authors, Deepika Sharma, who is a director of research within the multi assets, strategies and solutions group at BlackRock; and by William Dudley, the chairman of the committee's board of directors and former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
