From crisis to growth? The challenge of imbalances, dept, and limited resources
|Veranstalter:||IMK in der Hans-Böckler-Stiftung|
|Ort:||Berlin, Best Western Premier Hotel Steglitz International|
Four years after the first turbulences on the U.S. housing market that triggered the subsequent global crisis, the future of the world economy is still highly uncertain. Is the crisis over, or are we heading towards a period of stagnation or recession? What will be the drivers of future growth? How to cope with high private and public debt? Is there a new growth model capable of overcoming the problems of financial instability, income inequality and trade imbalances? Are high growth rates still possible or desirable, given limited natural resources?
