Italy queries dollar's role in Bretton Woods reform
ROME Oct 16 (Reuters) - Italy's economy minister said a reform of the Bretton Woods institutions should also review trade, foreign exchange and capital markets and questioned whether the dollar should remain the reference currency under a new system.
"At the time of the last Bretton Woods, there was only the dollar, now there's the euro as well," Giulio Tremonti told reporters on Thursday.
