Definitions of BRUSSELS CONFERENCE,
Sort: Oldest first
an international monetary conference, held at Brussels in the autumn of 1892 at the suggestion of the United States Government. The debate was chiefly upon the initial thesis of the American programme suggested in the invitation to the convention, i. e., that it was desirable to find some means of increasing the use of silver in the currency systems of the nations. No definite step was taken at this conference, though it was pretty clearly shown that some agreement regarding an international free mintage of silver might be arrived at, if Great Britain could be induced to give her consent.
