    Thanks, Earnest, for finding that information re. Dean Acheson.

    He was talking specifically about the needs for some form of arms control, where as the WTS (as is typical) put a somewhat different spin on his observations.

    Don't blame Acheson for the formation of the World Bank!

    While the US Secretary of State certainly attended the 1944 Bretton Woods conference (which led to the creation of that institution), he wasn't its founder. Rather, that resulted very much from the efforts of the British economist John Maynard Keynes and a senior US Treasury official, Harry Dexter White.
