The legacy of the gold standard and the Great Depression continued to influence both the economic behavior of individuals and the policies of governments through the remainder of the interwar years. That influence persisted into World War II, into the postwar period, and indeed to the end of the twentieth century. This concluding chapter describes some of the implications of that persistence for the postwar international economic order.
