    The corona virus has proved to be a veritable “black swan” event, triggering an extraordinary economic collapse and previously unimaginable changes to people’s daily lives. We have brought together a host of experts to address how we combat the immediate crisis, but also how to reform our economies and the ways they interact with each other.

    Corona crisis – On the recent special report of Germany's council of Economic Experts


    The global economy faces a unprecedented recession, and there is great uncertainty over the timing and strength of the rebound. This has prompted a huge fiscal response and aggressive action by central banks. Will it be enough to prevent a depression?


    Achim Truger, Member of the German Council of Economic Experts, University of Duisburg Presentation Slides (Video Recording)
    Patrick Graichen, Director of Agora Energiewende Presentation Slides (Video Recording)

    On crisis moments and paradigm shifts – will this pandemic derail globalization?


    Global trade has imploded as consumption and investment have shrunk and lockdowns and travel restrictions have disrupted international supply chains. A shift in the balance between national autonomy and globalization seems inevitable. How do we ensure that this is positive?

Welcome to Day 2 of this joint Workshop between Forum New Economy and Transformative Responses on the consequences of the corona virus. How long will the outbreak last? Are we facing a short-lived downturn or a depression? If so, which can governments and central banks do to combat it. What will a prolonged downturn mean for the eurozone? And could the crisis act as a catalyst for a paradigm shift in economic thinking. You can follow the discussion live on Zoom, The Forum New Economy website, YouTube or Twitter.
