(economist, spook)

William Diebold was an economist who spent his career at the Council on Foreign Relations, shaping and studying the international economic order after World War II.

After joining the council in New York in 1939 just after graduate school, Diebold spent the war years working on wartime economic challenges and helping design a postwar economic system, both as a member of the council's War and Peace Studies Program and at the Office of Strategic Services.

An orthodox liberal economist with a practical bent of mind, he was in regular contact with United States policy makers and strongly supported the Bretton Woods economic system, based on free trade, convertible currencies and fixed exchange rates, that came slowly into existence after the war ended.[1]
