New Paradigm Workshop: New Roles for the State – Rethinking Government at the Turning of Ages

 

Nach Jahrzehnten der Marktliberalisierung, in denen der Staat sich nach herrschendem Leitmotiv zunehmend aus möglichst vielen Bereichen der Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zurückzuziehen hatte, hat die Große Finanzkrise von 2008 als Katalysator für ein Infragestellen des Diktums vom effizienten Markt gewirkt. Das Urvertrauen in die heilende Wirkung des Markts hat seither deutlich nachgelassen und Platz gemacht für häufigere Interventionen des Staates.

 

Noch fehlt diesem Wandel allerdings ein schlüssiges neues Leitmotiv – und ein besseres Verständnis davon, wann genau staatliches Handeln ökonomisch begründbar nötig ist – und wann nicht. Wie soll eine neue Balance von Staat und Markt aussehen? Wie lässt sich staatliches Handeln effizienter organisieren? Welche alternativen Akteure jenseits der klassischen Verwaltung können dabei eine Rolle spielen? Diese und weitere Grundsatzfragen werden am 24-25. Mai im X New Paradigm Workshop diskutiert.
