Outside the main industrialised countries, growth was fastest in the states of European settlement on the periphery. Cheaper shipping now made it possible for these to export large quantities of grain, wool, meat, rubber, oil and other products in return for imports of manufactures. This brought rapid growth in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Argentina (exporting mainly wheat, wool, lamb and beef, respectively). Within Europe (apart from Belgium, which was almost an extension of the French economy), Sweden secured a fairly rapid rate of growth, exploiting her natural endowment by exporting timber, and later pulp and paper, all over Europe.
It would meet at least quarterly, to discuss the state of the world economy. There are already two UN 28 The Management of the World Economy bodies that bring together a representative group of ministers of finance at regular intervals: the Interim Committee of the IMF; and the Development Committee, which comes under the aegis of the World Bank and the IMF together. These could well be merged into a single body. They could then, with new terms of reference, be adapted to perform the function required.
Britain, concerned with stability rather than growth, in 1925 pegged her currency to gold at the pre-war level, and then found it impossible to export on a scale that would mop up her high unemployment, especially as many of her exports went to countries outside Europe whose economies were depressed by low agricultural prices. France, on the other hand, which fixed the franc at an undervalued level, restored her markets abroad and recovered fast. Germany, at first held back by very heavy reparations payments and a bout of hyper-inflation, underwent a rapid economic recovery in the second half of the twenties, aided by large-scale investment and loans from the United States.
