VI New Paradigm Workshop - The Corona Crisis
On April 21 and 22, we hosted our sixth – and first virtual – New Paradigm Workshop, together with the recently launched project “Transformative Reponses to the Crisis”. What was originally planned as a workshop on potential future financial, political or climate crises and how to prepare for the next crisis, was rearranged to focus on the current Corona crisis and its consequences. Altogether 35 experts discussed on 9 different panels the economic impact of the crisis on Germany and beyond, what governments and central banks can do to combat it and what a prolonged downturn will mean for the eurozone. They also debated the implications for the future of globalization and whether this crisis could act as a catalyst for a paradigm shift in economic thinking.
