Harry Dexter White (October 9, 1892 – August 16, 1948) was a Jewish economist and a senior U.S. Treasury department official. He has been said to have been the main author of many polices that were adopted by U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., also Jewish. White was the senior American official at the 1944 Bretton Woods conference, and reportedly dominated the conference, imposing his vision of post-war financial institutions over the objections of John Maynard Keynes, the famous British economist and UK representative.

After the war, he was a major architect of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

He was also, covertly, an influential agent for the Communist Soviet Union.

Argued influence as a Soviet agent

Harry Dexter White has been argued to have negatively influenced:[1]

  • American policies contributing to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
  • Giving large-scale American financial support to the Soviet Union, even at the end of the war when Germany was defeated.
  • Providing the Soviets with the printing plates, colored inks, varnish, tint blocks and special paper to enable them to counterfeit the Allied occupational currency for Germany, allowing them to flood the country with currency that U.S. taxpayers were forced to redeem.
  • The Morgenthau Plan
  • American policies contributing to the Communist takeover of China.
  • Bringing other Communist agents into the U.S. government, promoting them, and repeatedly sabotaging investigative efforts and attempts to expose and remove them.
  • The 1944 Bretton Woods monetary conference, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank, argued to cause various long-term negative economic and monetary effects for the capitalist countries.
  • The creation of the United Nations.

The Holocaust and the Vrba-Wetzler report

The Treasury Department under the Jewish Morgenthau and White has been argued to have conducted an anti-German campaign and to have interfered in foreign policy. Morgenthau in 1944 managed to establish the War Refugee Board (WRB) that notably gave official US sanction to the important Vrba-Wetzler report on Auschwitz in the form of a WRB report. Morgenthau had delegated all of the Treasury’s powers in the areas relevant to the WRB to White.[2]
