Money, debt, growth - how are they connected?
Geld, Schulden, Wachstum - wie hängt das zusammen?
Money, Debt, Growth - How are They Connected? Today's Monetary System, Common Points of Criticism, and Alternative Monetary Reforms in a Nutshell
The workshop is co-organized by Helge Peukert
Degrowth strategies are not only depending on political decisions, but also on concepts of economic orders which permit the expectation to be stable and prosperous without the necessity of nominal or real growth rates. Therefore it is important to understand the basic mechanisms of contemporary monetary systems, outline problems and dilemmas of the current monetary policy and to thoroughly examine the feasibility of unconventional reform options in order to allow a degrowth economy.
