XII. New Paradigm Workshop - Resetting the Economy after the Crises
10 - 18 CET
The COVID-19 pandemic, the energy crisis and the sudden rise in inflation all had profound effects on the economy in Germany and worldwide. These shocks have exposed the vulnerabilities of a highly open economy like Germany’s, which must now be addressed as part of a revised approach to globalisation.
The energy shock has accelerated the ongoing transformation towards climate neutrality, and the return of largely supply-driven inflation raises the question of whether monetary policy alone is capable of taming rising price levels.
We have invited top international experts to our upcoming New Paradigm Workshop to draw lessons from recent crisis responses, to look beyond the current energy shock. What will the economy look like in the future? How will Germany and other major countries adapt to accelerated change? What do the new rules mean for globalisation and how can inflation be controlled in the future?
We cordially invite you to join in the discussion.
